The second of 3 shows leading up to our weeklong live broadcasts from Beale Street during the 2012 International Blues Challenge.
2009 is the year for this show.
JP Soars & The Red Hots won the Band Challenge that year. Soars also individually won the event's Albert King Award, which established him as the best guitar player in the competition
JP Soars, is a musical melting pot, with influences from all genres of music, including heavy metal, which is where his professional career as a musician got it’s start.
What has happened to JP and the band since their win? We will speak to JP about that and also his recent collaboration with past Couch guests Victor Wainwright and Damon Fowler, a super group for the blues if there is one.
That same year, Joe McLerran won the Solo/Duo Challenge.
Joe and I could not connect, but did speak after the show ended and he will be on Next Monday as my third guest.
Come sit on The Couch and meet "Musicians You Should Know".
