Bayou Rum and Rock ‘n’ Bowl are collaborating to bring you the Bayou Rum Blues Jam at Rock N Bowl every Tuesday night in October.
The Blues Jam will consist of multiple 15 minute rounds in which each participant can showcase their blues chops with Chuck Credo IV and the Credo Blues Society, whom will be acting as the event’s house band.
Contestants are allowed to display their talent on a number of instruments, including guitar, Hammond B3 Organ, harmonica, and vocals.
Each Tuesday there will be a panel of judges composed of various music business professionals and blues enthusiasts. Attendees will also be allowed the opportunity to vote through Rock ‘n’ Bowl’s twitter account. Blues competitions are a long-standng tradition at Rock ‘n’ Bowl. One of the first was a “Blues Jam” when the up-and-coming Tab Benoit was selected as the winner.
The winner of the competition will receive a free recording session at the Music Shed Recording Studio, a paid performance at Rock ‘n’ Bowl, and other prizes.
Competition dates are as follows:
Round 1 – Tuesday October 7, at 8 p.m.
Round 2 - Tuesday October 14, at 8 p.m.
Round 3 – Tuesday October 21, at 8 p.m.
FINAL ROUND - Tuesday October 28, at 8 p.m.
