Deb, we hold our finals at the Waterfront Blues Festival. Four finalists compete there after a previous round in June. Doing it that early allows for more fundraising opportunities to happen before they have to head to Tennessee.

Liz, I expect a lot from your entry. You've been involved sending acts to IBC two years now and have placed finalists both times. 

Cannot wait to see all of the acts I can this year.

The Cascade Blues Association is sending:

Lisa Mann & Her Really Good Band
Ray Roberson & Neil Beese

  I'm amazed that your blues societies are already finished with your IBC. We 
  have our finals on November 7th. Deb

  Look forward to seeing them in Memphis.

  Lefty Collins won the band category in Birmingham (Magic City Blues Society)
  this past Sunday.
