Congratulations to Round One high scorers!

Those who came out to the Lowcountry Blues Challenge Round One this past Sunday got to enjoy SEVEN different bands!! It was a lot of fun. The top four high scoring bands may have a chance to compete in the finals, but we won't know the actual line-up until after Round Two on October 23rd. But for now, congratulations to Victoria Station, Highway 17 Blues Band, Nate Mills and the Blue Plate Specials, and the J Edwards Band for being this week's top 4 bands. And thank you to everyone who participated!

3*** more bands will be competing on October 23rd (Home Team BBQ West Ashley. 4pm):
Momma and the Redemption Band, 3xLucky, and The Rhythm Method...The top 4 from BOTH rounds will play in the finals on November 6th (same bat-place, same bat-time).
