Congratulations to our Journey to Memphis finalists – the TJ Wong Trio, James Ortega Y Los Demon Drivers, The Fabulous Bad Cats and the Pat Stillwell Band. Thanks everyone that helped make the heats at Mekong Bistro such a great event. The contenders will compete for the chance to represent Cascade Blues Association at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN 2023. The finals are at the Waterfront Blues Festival on Monday July 4th from 1130am.

Stop by the Cider Summit where we will have a Cascade Blues Association fundraising and merchandise booth, June 10 and 11, Fields Neighborhood Park PDX.

Join us at the member meeting on June 1st at the Garages from 6pm. Featuring the Chris Stone and Robbie Laws duo, followed by the Pat Stillwell band. This is the easiest place to sign up for volunteering at the Waterfront Blues Festival. Why volunteer? No you won’t get free entry, but a little birdie told me some of our volunteers will be getting backstage access, so sign up now.

See you for the print edition!
