Its had been four years since our first local IBC Event was held at the Rhumba Room to identify a solo/duo act to a attend the annual International Blues Challenge put on by the Blues Foundation in Memphis.
That was 2010 and Vancouver duo Mud Dog was selected. The following year it was held at the West Beach Bar and Grill and solo artist David "Boxcar" Gates went to Memphis. In 2012 we held the event at the Princeton Pub downtown and Pappa Dawg's Band was selected. Last year the event was held on Granville Street at the FANCLUB. Brandon "Yukon Slim" Isaak was chosen from the solo/duo category and Arsen Shomakhov Band from the band category.
We had 10 acts performing 25 minute sets with judges using the same criteria employed in Memphis
to determine who will be sponsored to attend the January 2015 event on the famed Beale Street.
The two acts going to Memphis are:
Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band
Dalannah Gail Bowen
