Battle of the Blues Bands: Capital Region Blues Network’s Blues Challenge
The folks at the Capital Region Blues Network are doing things a little differently this year in regards to submissions for the 2018 Blues Challenge. Instead of judging entries based on submitted audio recordings, the selections will be made on the basis of informal live auditions at CRBN’s Sunday evening blues jams at McGeary’s Pub in Albany.
BANDS: The deadline to enter the competition is Friday, May 4, and the final battle of the blues bands will take place at The Linda in Albany on Saturday, July 14
DUOS/SOLO: Entry deadline is Monday, May 28, and the final round of competition will be held at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs on Sunday, September 9.
YOUTH DIVISION: The deadline to enter the competition is Sunday, September 30.
Winners in each category will represent Greater Nippertown’s blues scene at the 35th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis (January 22-26) in addition to cash prizes and other considerations.
