Reservations are made, deposits dropped and schedules are confirmed so now it’s official, The Bush League is headed back to Memphis, TN for another musical jaunt to the mecca of the blues! This time we head down there on our own terms and will see how the city is in the summer time!
Hard Rock Cafe Memphis on Beale Street
We start our trip on back on Beale Street with a gig at Hard Rock Cafe Memphis on Friday June 15 and end that weekend recording at Young Avenue Sound! We played the semi-finals of The Blues Foundation‘s 2012 International Blues Challenge at the Hard Rock Cafe Memphis and our performance that night parlayed us this gig! We only played 4 songs that night so we can not wait to give them a full The Bush League show!
Young Avenue Sound Memphis, TN
One of the sound guys during our quarter-final shows during The Blues Foundation‘s 2012 International Blues Challenge at The Flying Saucer was Ari Morris, sound engineer at Young Avenue Sound. We exchanged information when we ran into each other later that week and lucky we’ve worked it out that we could schedule recording time around the same time as the gig on Beale! We will then be added to their most awesome and diverse clientele list!
This is going to be a trip (in all senses if the word)! We are working on ways to document all of this so that we can share as much of this trip with all of you as possible! Stay tuned cause I’m sure that we’ll come up with something crazy! The fun times continue…
The Bush League on 'Music On The Couch' 02/02/12 9pm
While we were in Memphis, TN waiting for the results of who was moving on to the semi-finals for The Blues Foundation‘s 2012 International Blues Challenge in February we were interviewed in a room above Beale Street’s Rum Boogie Cafe by Vinny ‘Bond’ Marini for his Blog Spot Radio Show Music On The Couch “Musicians You Should Know”! We are the first band of several who did 10 minute interviews that night, one of our songs from The Bush League ROCKS was even played after our conversation!
