CONGRATS TO OUR DENVER BLUES CHALLENGE WINNERS!
We at the Mile High Blues Society could not be prouder or more excited about sending solo winner Randall Dubis and band winner Erik Boa & The Constrictors to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge. The Denver blues scene will be very well represented!
All of the artists who competed were outstanding, and the scoring was incredibly close all the way. We have nothing but respect for all the acts, and for the Denver blues community.

BEST SELF-PRODUCED BLUES CD COMPETITION WINNER
This CD is beautifully recorded and produced. The songs are brilliant, sad and uplifting... blues ballads telling a story of failure, struggle, and redemption. The performances are first rate.
You can listen to three cuts from the CD here on this page. The music player below plays a list of songs in random order, but you can step through them to find the Hornbuckle tunes.
Congratulations to Michael Hornbuckle and the entire band.
