The winners who qualify to go to the International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis are:

Kicking off the fundraiser, the Youth Showcase presents First Press. This year, the local blues acts donating their time to help raise travel funds for the Blues Challenge are Howlin Dogma and Mitch & Dale.

In addition to coming to the show, there are two ways to donate online (links below):
Making Dreams Come True!
We know there many worthy causes for you to donate money to, and
many are for people in need of health care, food and shelter. Our
cause is a little different. What we do is work at making dreams
come true for the blues musicians who win the annual Rainy Day Blues
Challenge, and earn the right to represent Lane County and surrounding
areas at the next International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis
Stay tuned for announcements on the "Self Produced CD"
ROOSTER AWARDS Announcement
We don't have an exact date yet, but sometime soon you will see a new section on the website for Rooster Award nominations. We will reach out to the blues community for nominees. The Rooster Awards are local recognition awards and are not associated with the Blues Challenge, Road To Memphis, or the International Blues Challenge.
