The Atlanta Blues Soceity Press Release The Atlanta Blues Challenge is the Atlanta Blues Society’s competition to select our representatives for the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. This year we have a new venue for our event, Route 66, which is also the signature song of one of Atlanta’s blues legend who we recently lost, Eddie Tigner. As such, this year’s Challenge will be in honor of Mr. Tigner. To help offset costs of the challenge we will be charging $10 for ABS members and $15 for non-members at the door, cash is preferred in order to speed up the entry process. Food & drink will be available from the venue, there will be plenty of room for everybody and lots of free parking. We have been accepting applications and will hopefully have 12 acts competing. The Youth acts will perform first, then the Solo/Duo acts, then the Bands. The winners will win the following prize money to help with their trip to Memphis: • Band - $750 • Solo/Duo - $400 • Youth - $300 There will also be a prize of $250 rewarded for People’s Choice which will be determined by voting of the paying patrons at the event. Make sure to get a ballot when you pay at the door. Come on out and root for your favorites and see the best up and coming blues acts in the area.
