Bands Sought for the Capital Region Blues Network’s Blues Band Showcase
The Capital Region Blues Network is throwing its Blues Band Showdown at The Linda in Albany on Saturday, July 14. The six bands will compete in the showdown for a prize package of $500, a nomination to the International Blues Competition in Memphis, a pair of paid gigs and professional guitar set-ups – a total value of over $1,500.
Each of the competing bands will host a Sunday Night Jam at the Fuller Roadhouse Grille in Albany, and the competition is already underway with Joe Lowry & the Second Mile Blues Band hosting the first jam earlier this month. Holly & Evan are up next on Fuller Road on June 3, followed by the Ed Wool Band (June 17) and Collette & the Mudcats (June 24).
That leaves two spots still open and up for grabs.
