Breaking News!!

Well, by gum, I guess we can never have too many blues societies in the Home of the Blues, the Pacific Northwest. Back when Blind Melon Douglas Fir was in these parts, there was no society at all to help him make a living.

Good for them for choosing Randy Oxford's band. It makes sense, since he is on their board as fundraiser...

I wasn't paying attention, I guess. Neither the WBS nor the eastern Washington group sponsors a band for this contest? I guess I can see why not - then they would have to participate in all these benefits to send the band to the great State of Tennessee.

The is an effort underfoot to start the Interbay Blues Society or maybe the Harbor Island Blues Society or maybe the Rat City Blues Society with the single purpose of sending the band of my choice to Memphis for IBC... Unlike SSCA though, we will NOT claim that our band represents the entire state of Washingotn.

I've already applied for a tax-free exemption for the North Admiral Neighborhood Blues Society, so don't even think about going there! However, I believe the Alki area is still up for grabs...

Mike....We (a mystery group at best) are also considering doing something with either Wedgewood or Delridge...

Greetings from the Madrona Blues Society! We are waiting for our Federal Endowment For The Arts Grant to be approved and then we will Bury the rest of you!!

Heh Heh...

Jason, bring the Mercedes around, will you?

My blues society is "The Bellevue Firs Apartment 13 Blues Society," and we will be sending a blues flautist to Memphis.

Take THAT, pretenders!
