Observations From The Prez!!!
Published on: 10/1/2019
The MCBS and the Shelby County Arts Council have teamed up to bring Mikey Jr. to the New Black Box Theater in Columbiana AL. on Friday October 11th

Show starts at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 7

2Blu will be opening so it is really going to be off the hook.


    This is to help celebrate the new expanded Theater and help kick it off with a bang. If you have never been to the old theater you missed one of the gems of the music scene in the greater Birmingham area. Bruce Andrews and crew continues to bring an eclectic, dynamic, intimate experience to music and arts lovers from all over. The new venue is larger, but just as intimate going from 85 to 200 seats. It is sure to become a must stop for all music lovers.  So please come out and support the MCBS and bring your friends and family. Below is some more information off their web page.

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.
