Steel City Blues Society is looking to represent one band and one solo/duo act at the 2019 International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, TN, January 28 – Feb. 1, 2020. SCBS will provide a $500 cash stipend for the competition winner.
Acts will be asked to play 3 to 4 songs (25 mins) depending on the number of sign-ups. Scoring will be based on; Talent, Vocals, Blues Content, Stage Presence and Originality. We will use the same scoring as the IBC. Please visit https://blues.org/international-blues-challenge for more information.
To reflect the relative importance of each category in the success of a band, a band’s score in each category is weighted. Raw scores for Blues Content is multiplied by four, Talent and Vocals by three and Originality and Stage Presence are multiplied by two. The total in each category represents the Weighted Score for that category. Total possible weighted score is 140.
