Nashville Blues Challenge, Nov 7th-10th

Nashville Blues Challenge Begins At W.M.N.

NashvilleBluesChallenge-1The International Blues Challenge (IBC) is held every year in Memphis. The IBC represents an international search by the Blues Foundation and its affiliated organizations (mostly blues societies from the US and abroad) for Blues Bands and Solo/Duo Blues acts ready to headline national and international stages, but needing the extra break that winning or placing in the competition provides. It has evolved into the world’s biggest and most respected showcase for Blues musicians. The IBC is a judged “Battle of the Bands” in which competitors take the stage and play a short set for a panel of experts from the blues world. The acts are judged based on an established set of criteria, which includes Blues Content, Instrumental Talent, Vocal Talent, Originality, and Stage Presence.

The Nashville Blues Society will be holding its own competition this year, open to any eligible local blues band or solo/duo act within our membership and region. The selected winner in each category (Band and Solo/Duo) will be sent to the 28th International Blues Challenge, scheduled for January 31 thru February 4, 2012.

The Nashville Blues Challenge preliminary and semi-finals competitions will take place November 7-10, 2011 at World Music Nashville and culminate with the final competition being held on Sunday, November 13, 2011 at the Hard Rock Cafe.
