DALLAS / FT WORTH / N TEXAS LIVE BLUES 3/17/17 THRU 3/3/17


Planning our FIRST Regional Blues Challenge Aug 6, 2017!!

If you are or you know a solo/duo or band act ready for the international stage then our Blues Society wants to hear from you!!

 We are super excited about our first IBC Blues Challenge and the honor to host a band and solo/duo act to the 34th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis January 16-20, 2018!!!  This is a tremendous opportunity and we need all of you to spread the word, join your Blues Society and volunteer with your talents!

Gordon Robertson is our IBC Chair and we ask that all requests to enter be sent to him first at grobertson106@gmail.com. You may also call with any questions to 817.368.1604.

Musicians who have NOT been nominated or have not won a Handy/Blues Music Award are eligible!   This will be a regional Challenge for our North Texas Musicians first!!  Others outside our immediate location may be considered but our intention is to first draw from the pool of our very talented Regional musicians.  It will be a sanctioned Challenge and acts must enter their home Society's Challenge (the closest to them) first according to the Blues Foundation's rules.

At least one member of a band or a solo/duo act MUST be a
Trinity River Blues Society member in order to enter.  Entry fees will be $15 for a Solo or Duo Act and $25 for a band.  You can join on line at www.trinityblues.com.  Once you have submitted your request with Gordon, we will send you an application to fill out and return with the entry fee.  We also ask that you include the following with your application; a bio, hi-resolution photo and a stage plot.

We plan to hold 2 challenges, one on August 6, 2017 from 1 - 6pm, the location will be announced at a later date.  One will be in the Dallas area and the other in the Ft Worth area.  The second challenge will take place August 13, 2017 from 1-6pm also location TBA.  The finals will take place August 27 also a TBA location.

We'll follow the IBC rules set out by the Blues Foundation. You can find that information here:http://blues.org  We recommend that everyone interested in entering familiarize themselves with these rules.

Each band will perform for 25 minutes so there will be a strict time line.  Backline and sound will be provided. Regional and International judges will score on the following: Blues Content, Originality, Vocals, Instrumental Talent and Stage Presence.

DALLAS / FT WORTH / N TEXAS LIVE BLUES 4/13/17 THRU 4/1/9/17



As you may have heard by now, my Big Brother in the Blues, Texas Country Blues Preacher KM Williams became disoriented at his gig on Friday night, and thankfully his wonderful wife Yollie was with him and recognized his unusual behavior. She immediately took him to a Dallas area hospital where he underwent emergency surgery early Saturday morning. The surgery was successful in correcting the issue

Yollie has conveyed to me that she appreciates everyone's prayers and kind words. She also appreciates your continued respect of the her & KM's privacy during this sensitive time.

I know many followers of this page and my radio show are fans and friends of KM. If you would like to send a card or a note, it would be much appreciated. Please send it to:
KM Williams
c/o Blue Lisa
PO Box 721384
Dallas, TX 75372


I will update you with information as it becomes available. As for now, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

KM has tirelessly supported me as a person, as a vocalist and as a DJ with BIG TEXAS BLUES by playing every Thanksgiving Morning Live Show and Fort Worth Bluesfest I've ever put on. Trainreck recorded their first CD in my living room. He took me to play with him on the Main Stage of the Chicago Blues Fest. I could go on and on.

There have been so many good times Big Brother. Get well soon, More adventures await us. XOXOXO
