The Road To Memphis

The Road To Memphis

Hey Believers! By now, most of you know about our upcoming trip to Memphis, where we will compete at the 30th International Blues Challenge (IBC). And, I'm sure you also know that we held an IBC fundraiser last month at The Blue Rooster in Sarasota. The event was a HUGE success and it was all because of YOU! I have to thank those who attended (and worked), because we raised almost $2,000 towards our goal of $5,500!

Hey Believers! By now, most of you know about our upcoming trip to Memphis, where we will compete at the 30th International Blues Challenge (IBC). And, I'm sure you also know that we held an IBC fundraiser last month at The Blue Rooster in Sarasota. The event was a HUGE success and it was all because of YOU! I have to thank those who attended (and worked), because we raised almost $2,000 towards our goal of $5,500! Needless to say, I was overwhelmed by the show of support. We've also been receiving donations via mail, and at our shows ... and The Suncoast Blues Society will give us $1,000 towards our travel expenses. So we're getting close, but we are still about $1,500 away from our goal.

There will be one more fundraiser show THIS THURSDAY (12/12) at Ace's Live Music in Bradenton, and we have a couple special things planned for that show: First we'll be performing the set that will take us to the final round (and the win!) at the IBCs in January, and we will be starting a raffle for a one-of-a-kind print of yours truly from famed music photographer, Steven Whitsitt that was taken while we were on tour last summer.

For more details on the show at Ace's, other ways to contribute if you are not in the area, and information about the IBC's and the LMB, check out the second article in the "ROAD TO MEMPHIS" series from the Sarasota Post.

Thanks again to all of you for keeping the LMB on top! We couldn't do it without YOU!

I hope all of you have a blessed holiday season,

~ Lauren
