Magic City Blues Society Battle of the Blues Bands
Time again for all Blues musicians from around the state to enter the Magic City Blues Society - Battle of the Blues Bands. The winners will represent the Magic City Blues Society at the 34th International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis January 16th – January 20th 2018 when winners from more than 150 Blues societies from around the world will compete. The winner of the IBC will get a lot of sponsorship opportunities and will be booked for some of the most prestigious Blues festivals around the country. Many artists have used this competition to make the national Blues scene. We are looking for the best Blues bands in Alabama to compete in the 2017 Battle of the Blues Bands contest. There will be two first place winners: one band and one solo/duo act. The winners will be booked for paying gigs at MCBS events. The first place winner of the band competition will have their choice to headline the October Phelan Park finale or open up for Blues Ball in December. The second place winner will play the gig that the first place winner does not choose. The third place winner will play for the MCBS birthday party in January 2018. The solo/duo winner will have the option to open the October Phelan Park finale or other MCBS event.
Additionally, the MCBS will give a stipend to the winners to assist with the costs of attending the finals in Memphis.
