Congratulations, Blues Dragon! Goin’ to Memphis to the Int’l Blues Challenge!

Congratulations to Blues Dragon for winning the regional International Blues Challenge Sunday, Sept 18 at BB Kings in West Palm Beach, Florida!  Kudos to BB Kings for providing the perfect venue for the perfect blues competition right here in
downtown West Palm!

We were busy covering a number of different events (a great tribute band on the waterfront; free food at World Of Beer; and our friends Journey at the Cruzan – more later on those) but we were able to stick at BB Kings for a couple bands.  It is amazing how much top-notch blues talent is present right here in South Florida!  And it’s amazing how much stuff can be packed into a Sunday.(Does anyone still say it’s hard to find things to do in downtown West Palm?)

Here’s the results on the Blues Challenge:

1st Place – Blues Dragon

2nd Place – Bobby and the Renegades

3rd Place – King Muddfish

Fan Favorite – Blues Dragon

Blues Dragon will represent the SFBS in Memphis, Tennessee at the International Blues Challenge (IBC) January 31 to February 4, 2012.

We weren’t there for Blues Dragon, but here’s some achive footage from an earlier performance at BB Kings (check our other blogs for more great video):


And another one:


The runner-up — Bobby and the Renegades — are a flat out great band, with Steve Laudicina laying down some great licks! (Earlier footage here too. More on our YouTube channel and other blogs.)


And here’s some footage from Sunday (with our new HD cam), with the bands Lowdown and JC Crossroads:
