DENVER BLUES CHALLENGE
Blues acts, remember: We will be presenting the Denver Blues Challenge this fall. It is the road to Memphis and the IBC! Send email to email@example.com to get started.
Thank you to all who have contacted us so far to enter the Denver Blues Challenge! We will be sending you entry forms in a few weeks. Entry is open through July 31, with the preliminary rounds of competition beginning on Sept 14. The Finals are scheduled for Oct 12.
We believe in doing things the way the International Blues Challenge is conducted in Memphis. The selection of venue for each act and the order of appearance will be absolutely random in both the prelims and the finals. The events will be backlined with amps for guitar, bass, and blues harmonica, and with a drum kit. Artists can bring their own instrument, pedal board, snare drum, and cymbals. Judges will be screened for blues knowledge and for direct conflicts of interest. Every act will get a fair shot at the title.
Blues acts may enter any or all of the IBC-related competitions presented by any blues society. They all are independent of each other, and the winners in each competition will advance to Memphis for the IBC.It is an experience of a lifetime. We encourage all interested blues acts to get involved.
Do you love the blues? Why not volunteer to help the Mile High Blues Society this year! The summer festival season is coming, and we will need people to man the MHBS booth. We will also need several people to help with the Denver Blues Challenge. If you are good with computers and accounting we have other interesting tasks for you. Help support live local blues in Denver! Email use at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
