Even though we’re a brand new band – our first gigs were this past spring – we’ve already entered and won the Boston Blues Society’s Blues Challenge! What this means is that we get to go down to Memphis the first week February for the International Blues Challenge (IBC) to represent the Boston Blues Society!

The IBC will include 2 days of quarter finals (Feb. 2-3), and one day of semi-finals (Feb 4), where over 150 blues bands from all over the world will fill clubs up and down Beale Street, concluding with the finals at the beautiful Orpheum Theater on February 5th. The IBC has evolved into the nation's biggest and most respected showcase for blues musicians, and an international search by The Blues Foundation for the blues band that's ready to take their act to the international stage. (That's us!)

We are really excited about winning, now we just have to figure out how to get all four of us down to Memphis. All of our travel costs are out-of-pocket, so we’re going to need some help! We're raising money for:
• plane tickets
• hotel rooms
• transportation and travel expenses

We're offering some really fun rewards that allow you to experience the International Blues Challenge with us as we journey down to the blues capital of the world, Memphis!
