If you saw them during the CBC you know that this young band has a bright future. For those that didn’t see them, this is your chance to catch them before they head to Memphis this February. Rosa’s lounge is located at 3420 W. Armitage Ave., Chicago.
Please join the Windy City Blues Society (WCBS) at B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted (2519 N. Halsted, Chicago) on Sunday, December 12 at 9:30 pm for a fundraiser to support Rob Blaine’s Big Otis Blues, the winners of the Band Competition of the Chicago Blues Challenge (CBC). As a direct result of their victory, we are sending Rob Blaine his band to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge during the first week in February. In order to accomplish this, the WCBS will be holding fundraisers in December and January for the performers who will represent us in Memphis. Proceeds from these fundraising events along with funds raised at all the CBC events will enable the WCBS to send these performers to Memphis.
Chicago, we need your help! Last year our representatives made a big splash at the IBCs and we intend to do the same again this year. Let’s show the international blues community what Chicago has to offer! Join us on Sunday, December 12 for a great night of blues for a worthy cause and watch this site for upcoming events in support of all our CBC winners. For those wishing to help us send our artists to Memphis but are unable to attend one of our fundraisers, please send checks to the address below payable to the Windy City Blues Society with the words “Memphis or Bust!” in the subject line.
