2016 International Blues Challenge!
Both Jimmy Wayne Garrett and Divas On Fire had awesome performances at the quarter-finals of the 2016 IBC. Though they did not make the top 4 in their respective venues (each faced contenders who ended up in first or second place overall) and did not advance to the semi-final round they made made a buzz on Beale that should make Northwest Arkansas proud. Again we thank all those who have helped these artists make the trip to Memphis become a reality. The networking opportunities at IBC go far beyond the competition itself and I guarantee you our NWA acts have been doing their best to take advantage of those opportunities.
Thank you all for making the 2016 Road to Memphis a success!
