Washington Blues Society presents: Beale Street Bound Benefit for the IBC Youth Showcase Duo – Nick Mardon and Miranda Kitchpanich
SATURDAY JAN 12th 1-6 PM at Louie G’s Pizza, 5219 Pacific Hwy E, Fife, Washington 98424
A Suggested $10 donation will be taken at the door, but we will turn no one away as the public is welcome to attend. All the proceeds go to the IBC fund to send our entrants to compete against over 200 acts on historic Beale Street in Memphis TN at the 2019 International Blues Challenge held January 22 to 26, 2019. This year’s entrants are Sammy Eubanks and the Working Class (Band) and Sheri Roberts Greimes (solo). Representing the Washington Blues Society in the youth showcase at IBC is the duo of Nick Mardon and Miranda Kitchpanich.
The star-studded list of performers who are volunteering their time and talents for the event includes The IBC entrants and youth showcase duo along with Seattle funk and soul blues guitarist Reji Marc, the teen rock quartet Blue Avenue, nine-piece horn band Hop Sol and multipole “Best of the Blues,” award winners and 2017 IBC competitors Polly O’Keary and the Rhythm Method.
The event will also host a silent auction of music memorabilia and a 50/50 raffle.
The Washington Blues Society would like to thank all the musicians for donating their talents and for the venue graciously hosting the event.
