Trouble No More In CIBS Blues Challenge Final

One of my old buddies from Des Moines has made it to the finals of the Central Iowa Blues Societies Iowa Blues Challenge. Hats off to Jeff for making it that far. There are a lot of bands who have never made the finals, and unfortunatly a lot of bands who seem to make it to the finals every year. Good luck to Jeff and all the bands as they head to the finals.

Here is a note Jeff sent out:

Whoa Yeah! We (Trouble No More) are in it!

Saturday night, May 16th from 10:30 to 11:15 PM Trouble No More will set the Hotel Fort Des Moines ablaze with good time danceable Blues that cannot be denied. The whole deal starts at 8:30 PM and features 4 acts that are competing for a trip to the International Blues Competition in Memphis next May. Admission is $10.

After years of competing in preliminary rounds with the likes of Blues Inc. and Trouble In Mind, I finally pulled together a group that made it to the finals. We clearly had the experience going for us in the prelim round at Zimm's in early April. For my part, I have my past mates in Blues Inc. and Trouble In Mind to thank for that.

The competition will be stiff, but we're gonna bring it on. Here's hoping maybe you can swing the night to come down and watch us light it up.

Best wishes,
