Hi All -
This Sunday, November 6th, come out to Home Team/West Ashley for the Blues Challenge finals, starting around 3:30pm. We'll have the competition first, then we'll have a jam for all musicians after that, so bring your instrument with you. Your donation of $5 will go to helping the winning band get to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge at the end of January. The competing bands will be The J Edwards Band, Highway 17 Blues Band, Nate Mills and the Blue Plate Specials, and Momma & the Redemption Band. After these bands play, then the collaborative fun begins, with one of our famous all-inclusive jams.
