Making Dreams Come True!

We know there many worthy causes for you to donate money to, and many are for people in need of health care, food and shelter.  Our cause is a little different.  What we do is work at making dreams come true for the blues musicians who win the annual Rainy Day Blues Challenge, and earn the right to represent Lane County and surrounding areas at the next International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis Tennessee. 

The IBC in Memphis is the biggest gathering of blues acts in the world every year!  Acts from around the world go to Memphis to compete to see who will win the IBC. The IBC is like the Voice or American Idol of the Blues World.  Careers are launched.  Acts are picked up to go on tour.  Acts are signed to record deals.  And some acts, win and then go home to their local areas and are among the best acts getting the best shows.  This is truly an opportunity to make dreams come true.

Please come together once again as a community and let's raise the travel funds to Memphis for the Rainy Day Blues Challenge winners. Let's make dreams come true!


Stay tuned for announcements on the "Self Produced CD"


We don't have an exact date yet, but sometime soon you will see a new section on the website for Rooster Award nominations.  We will reach out to the blues community for nominees.  The Rooster Awards are local recognition awards and are not associated with the Blues Challenge, Road To Memphis, or the International Blues Challenge.
