GOOD LUCK! More Local Artists Heading to 2023 International Blues Challenge in Memphis

The incredible Hamilton band Garnetta and Dagroovmasters is heading to the 2023 in Memphis! The gang'll be competing against the best Blues acts from across the globe. They'll be showing the world what the Hammer can offer.

Garenetta and Dagroovemasters emerged victorious in the the hard-fought band category during the Toronto Blues Society IBC Finals at the Dakota Tavern. Little Magic Sam plus Glenn Marais & The Mojo Train were in the running as well. CONGRATULATIONS! 

Toronto's Heather Luckhart won in the solo-duo category.

We should also mention that unfortunately Bywater Call, who won the Grand River Blues Society band spot for 2023 can no longer make it to Memphis so Hamilton's Frank Cosentino Band will be going in their place.
