Tonight's show will select one band, and a solo/duet to move on to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. These artists will represent Chicago in an International competition of over 200 musical acts from across the globe. We thank all the supporters of the Chicago Blues Challenge. The moneys raised tonight will benefit the cost of the musicians to travel to Memphis for the International Competition.
Cant make the show But want to help out? We are trying to raise $4000 to share with the winning acts. (Band, Solo/Duet, & Youth acts) Can ya share a few extra dollars? Thank You.
The premier blues club in the world. Owned and operated by the Grammy winning blues legend himself, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Buddy Guy.
Blues fans know - There is only one place in Chicago to experience the finest Blues seven nights a week, enjoy southern Cajun soul food, and behold a major archive of Blues memorabilia. That place is Buddy Guy's Legends at 700 S. Wabash!
The International Blues Challenge represents the worldwide search for blues bands and solo/duo blues performers ready for the international stage, yet just needing that extra big break. The world’s largest gathering of blues musicians will take place on Beale Street, with over 20 clubs hosting the challengers and fans. In addition to featuring these final rounds of the prestigious blues music competition, the IBC event week will offer seminars, showcases, master classes, film screenings, networking events, book signings, and receptions for blues societies, fans, and professionals.
