Hamilton's Smoke Wagon Blues Band and Cayuga Bluesman Jay Pollmann (of Gruve) will be representing the area in the 2016 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. They'll be vying for the top of the group and solo categories respectively on January 26-30, 2016. CONGRATS!
The talented musicians won a local competition organized by our friends at the Grand River Blues Society. After a hard fought battle on Sunday, September 20th at Bobby O'Brien's in Kitchener, they were chosen to represent us.
