Rainy Day Blues Society


Road To Memphis Fundraising Goal = $7,500

We call on all blues society members and non-members alike to help us raise the funds needed to cover travel and lodging expenses to Memphis.  Let's come together as a blues community and help The Hank Shreve Band and NattyBone cover the travel expenses to Memphis, so they can focus on playing great blues and bringing home the IBC championship awards.
