Rodney Dranfield (President WRBS) 

 

Its had been six 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 that went to Memphis are:


Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band

&

Dalannah Gail Bowen

On Sunday July 26 2015 we conducted another Blues Challenge Event at the Semiahmoo First Nation's Semiahmoo Park Spirit Stage to determine the solo/duo act and band to represent the WRBS in Memphis in January 2016.

Jesse Ropper was selected for the solo category

the Arsen Shomakhov Blues Band was selected for the band category.
