160 Acts to Compete in 2008 International Blues Challenge

2008 IBCDon’t miss another record breaking year! A total of 160 acts will participate in the 24th International Blues Challenge on historic Beale Street. This year, we will see 100 bands and 60 solo/duo acts competing in Memphis, Tennessee. They hail from 6 continents, 11 countries, and 36 states and the District of Columbia. That seventh and last continent -Antarctica- will be quite a challenge to get. The 14 states--Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Hampshire--should be a bit easier.

This year St. Louis is sending several bands - Darrein Safron and the Soul Sensations, The Kim Massie band, and the Marquise Knox blues band!

Make sure that “your face is in the place” January 31-February 2, 2008. The finals will take place at the Orpheum Theater at the top of Beale on Saturday. Cassie Taylor and Gary Clark, Jr. will be the co-hosts of the Band finals in the afternoon.
