Live From The Rum Boogie Cafe
The IBC is a gathering of acts (bands and solo/duo) from around the world in a 4-day Challenge. The first two days every act gets to play. The sets are 20 minutes and points are deducted if you go over the allotted time.
Friday is the semi-finals and the number of acts is cut more than in half.
Saturday, the top 8 bands and the top 8 solo/duo acts take the stage at the Orpheum Theater to find the best of the best.
On Friday, Youth Showcase acts from around the world are featured in showcases along Beale Street.
I will be conducting Interviews with Challengers, Blues Society Officials, Blues Foundation Officials, other musicians in town and fans.
