Memphis Tenn. 2012 IBC

04-02-2012
Made it back to Toledo last night about 2 am. Memphis was awesum, and a great experiance for Alex & I. The 4 acts that moved forward from the group we competed with all played traditional blues (Robert Johnson style) and as you know Alex & I are more contemporary blues, but our music was well recieved and we got nothing but good feedback. Met alot of great musicians and made some professional contacts. Thanks so much to our family, friends and the N.W. Ohio Black Swamp Blues Society for all your support. Peace, Love & Music.

Here are some facts about the IBC this year to give you an idea of its size.
First time ever they are using 20 venues.
There are 226 acts
748 musicians with 575 performances from 40 states & 16 countries.
This takes 108 judges
AND several volunteers.

You can hear our radio interview along with one of our new songs at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/musiconthecouch/2012/02/03/international-blues-challenge--show-5

We are like the 4th interview.
