For the 26th year the Central Iowa Blues Society, with the cooperation of the Southeast Iowa Blues Society, presents the Iowa Blues Challenge, a blues music competition in two categories: Bands and Solo/Duo acts. The four bands and four solo/duo acts entered will compete for a prize package that includes cash, recording time, paid performance opportunities, and entry into and travel expense stipend for the International Blues Challenge, to be held on historic Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee in January 2020.

The doors will open at 4:00 with the competition beginning at 4:30 in the Prairie Meadows Courtyard (weather permitting) or alternately inside the Kum & Go Theater. Lawn chairs are recommended in the courtyard as outdoor seating is limited. Food & drinks will be available by the Social Club. Advance tickets will be available at www.cibs.org for $15. Admission at the door will be $20.

The 2019 Iowa Blues Challenge is sponsored by Budweiser, Exile Brewing, Iowa Public Radio, Junior’s Motel, Rieman Music, Des Moines Social Club, VividPix & Design, Southeast Iowa Blues Society and Central Iowa Blues Society.
