The Atlanta Blues Challenge is happening Sunday Sept 22, 2013 at Anthony's Pizza in Scottdale, between Decatur and Clarkston. It will start at 1 pm and go until all the entrants have been seen. The cost will be $10 each for ABS members and $15 for non members.
For musicians, you still have time to enter, but not much...the deadline is midnight September 10! The winners in each category will represent The Atlanta Blues Society at the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge in Memphis which will take place January 22-25, 2014. The categories are Band, Youth, and Solo/Duo.The musicians receive prize money to help them with the trip to Memphis and there is also a special prize for the musician who gets the most audience votes. Go to the Atlanta Blues Society website for more information.
Last year, Little G Weevil represented Atlanta in the Solo/Duo category and won Best Solo and Best Guitarist.
Non-musicians, the challenge will be a chance to see some of the best Georgia blues talent all in one place so plan to come out and support these great performers!
