Memphis Bound

Postby dcblues » Tue Jan 24, 2006 9:39 pm

This Thursday I'm going to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge. I can't wait to go! Even if we don't make it to the finals it will be a great trip. I can't even imagine the post show jam sessions (I have a feeling lots of musicians will be at the hotel we're staying at). I can already taste the barbecue!

If anyone is going to be there, look for Charles "Big Daddy" Stallings & The B-Town Blues Band.

When you're ready for some real BBQ, come up this way. :)

We didn't make it to the finals, but we had a damn good time. A free trip to Memphis is always a good thing. We played two really tight sets and the audience loved us. The trip definitely gave us great exposure. I'll post a full report some time this week.
