We here at the Mick Schafer Band hope your long weekend is going great as we celebrate the fine men and women who lost their lives fighting for our freedoms.
In this last week of May, we are finishing up our Journey to Memphis month with the musicians going forward to the Waterfront Blues Festival in the second round of competition to win a slot at the International Blues Challenge in (you guessed it!) Memphis! Stay connected with us for more information for the July 4 second round of the Journey.
We’ve already had a great look at the inimitable Rae Gordon, and we’ll be highlighting the rest of them over the next few days.
Watch for Ben Rice who will be competing with Rae in the Solo/Duo category.
The Fenix Project will take on Johnny Wheels and the Swamp Donkeys. Then we will have a closer look at the Waterfront Blues Festival!
Wrapping up the week, look forward to more on the Mick Schafer band in June!
Let’s all go out and hear live music!!
