Tonight's show will select one band, and a solo/duet to move on to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (Jan 16-20th 2024). 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.

A video of us performing our song "Listen To You". We took inspiration from the way our favorite producer, Dave Cobb records some of our favorite bands. We recorded the audio all in one take, together the way it would be if we were live. We did a total of 5 takes to get the video shots but all the audio is from take #2, enjoy!
