Thanks to the support of all those who attended the fundraisers for my trip I made it to Memphis January 16-20 for the International Blues Challenge 2018. It was my first time in Memphis and I promise I made the best of it. I didn’t make it to the semi-finals but I was happy to see my friends in Dirty Red & The Soulshakers make it that far representing Oklahoma City. My venue was People’s Pool Hall, a perfect setting for me. I met a lot of great blues musicians from all over the world as well as people running things in the national blues scene so, who knows, there may be a lot of good things on the horizon for this one. I had the best time I’ve had in a while at one of the biggest blues events in the world today. Thanks for all your support. Look for more news from me later this year.
