35th IBC: Back to Beale Street Blues Competition
June 3, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm$8.00 – $10.00
Join us for the annual “Back to Beale Street Blues Competition” to be held June 3, 2018 at The Swiss in Tacoma, WA.
Competitions are public and everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to attend. Come and support our local blues musicians as they compete to see who moves on to the finals. Professional judges will be on site to jury the competitions. Listen to some mighty fine blues and meet these talented bands from our very own South Sound community!
Winners of the finals will head to the 35th International Blues Challenge to be held in Memphis, TN January 22-26, 2019, along historic Beale Street. “The International Blues Challenge represents the worldwide search for those Blues Bands and Solo/Duo Blues acts ready to perform on the international stage, yet just needing that extra big break.”
One band and one solo/duo act will represent SSBA in Memphis. Let’s help them get there by showing our support!
Use this Facebook event to let us know if you’re coming. We are currently in the application stage. Stay tuned for the Acts that will be competing and who will be judging the competition.
