The first ever Lowcountry Blues Challenge is coming in August, which is a week from Saturday. There will be a special feature coming in the Lowcountry Underground's August issue. By the way, the event is sponsored by Piggly Wiggly, Southern Comfort Bar and Grill, Ye Olde Music Shop, and Lowcountry Underground magazine. (Click any sponsors name to see what they're all about.)
We still have openings for bands, but this post is actually seeking talent offstage. For this event to be a success, it is crucial we have the people to make it happen.
Judges, stage set up and breakdown, admissions, membership are just some of the posts we need filled for five different shows on five different weekends: August 1, August 8, August 15, August 22, and September 19th. (UPDATE: We have a membership volunteer for Aug. 22.)
August 1 the show is at Halligans in West Ashely, it starts at 7pm.
August 8 the show is at Rendezvous American Grille in North Charleston, it starts at 7pm.
August 15th the show is at Southern Comfort Bar & Grill in Summerville, it starts at 7 pm.
August 22nd the show is at A Dough Re Mi, Mount Pleasant, it starts at 7pm.
September 19th the finale show is at Rendezvous American Grill in North Charleston, starting at 2pm.
