Observations From the Prez

Observations From The Prez!!!

From the Prez

Well fellow blues lovers, it has been a July to remember. We have had so many great events lately. Let’s recap.

June 29th Our own Miss Tara rocked the Red Wolf Lounge, no surprise there.

July 6th Jontavious Willis and Andrew Ali made everyone at the last show in the Black Box Theater at SCAC feel like we were sitting in their front room enjoying a jam session. The 2Blu Duo opened for an appreciative crowd. Both these acts never fail to impress.

July 13th Lauren Mitchell and her band caused spontaneous dancing by a raucous crowd in Francesca’s front room. Always a crowd pleaser. They will be back at the Daniel Day Gallery on Aug 25th. This will be the return leg of a 10K, 6 week tour of the Midwest and Northeast.

July 14th E.G. Kight put on an amazing acoustic performance at Paul’s house. She had so much fun that she joined the MCBS. Many thanks for her contributio

2018 IBC Results

Our BOBB winners did us proud in Memphis. Both Chris Simmons and John Bull made the semifinals. About half of the bands and solo/duos were eliminated in the quarter finals, so our entrants were in the top 50%. They didn’t make the finals, but only eight bands and eight solo/duos ended up making the cut out of about 200 entries.
