So much has happened since that last post! We will be giving short posts over the next few days to catch you up! Well we did not move past the semi-final round of this years International Blues Challenge but we had a most awesome time for the rest of our stay in Memphis, TN! The semi-final round was at The Hard Rock Cafe on Beale Street and our set time was 6pm. Joining us at The Hard Rock that night was RJ Harmon & Company, The Chris Canas Band(both came with us from The Flying Saucer), Miss Julia & The Cruzers and The WIRED! Band. The Wired! Band, representing the Washington Blues Society in Seattle, WA was the band that moved on to the finals from our club and they then went on to win this years challenge!
We also got to visit with Vinny ‘Bond’ Marini on his blog talk radio show “Music On The Couch“. We were the first band to sit on the couch for his 5th episode during the International Blues Challenge LIVE Broadcasts in the upper lounge of Rum Boogie Cafe on Beale Street, Vinny even plays ‘Death Of Robert’ from our latest CD The Bush League ROCKS! RVA’s River City Blues Society 2012 IBC representative, The Bobby ‘BlackHat’ Walter Band came in to sit on the couch a little after us, take a listen to the episode below!!!
