UK BLUES CHALLENGE 2019

Recommended Posts

Blatant self-plug but our band "The Achievers" have been chosen as a finalist in the UK BLUES CHALLENGE  Whoop, etc!

It's essentially an audition - with an emphasis on originality. Whoever does the right set on the night will go on to represent the UK in the  European Blues Challenge (Netherlands 🇳🇱) and International Blues Challenge (Memphis, Tennessee 🇺🇸).

We're excited. And encouraged!

Gig is at the Bluefunk Club, Poynton (Stockport) Cheshire, on the 14th Sept. 2019.

You know that I will be there right? Just don't tell the boys about me buying Dollar albums back in the day ...PLEASE!   @Teebs and @Ricky 4000 will have me bumped off by the silent assassin @skankdelvar if you do.

There'll be no 'bumping off' @Raymondo :)

Are you going then?

Hopefully see you there smiley

Do you know if it's an afternoon, or a evening do?

@TeebsI think it'll be an evening do- haven't got proper times yet but will likely be announced shortly.

@Raymondo has become the un-official Achievers mascott. Let's just say it wasn't a surprise to see him nursing five pints of Guiness when we arrived at a pub in Dover not so long ago! Hope you got back safe Ray!

Love the Wotton-Under-Edge fest- it's a great weekend, and super local for us too :)

Fab! :)

Look forward to it! (Just need to get day pass for good behaviour from SWMBO. I guess I'll have to be good for a bit :().

Look forward to meeting both @Jack_Stroud_Bass & @Raymondo & any other BC peeps who can make it! :)

I kinda wanna ask what SWMBO stands for... But I'm not sure I should!

Yes you too mate, we can have a proper bass geek out while the others aren't looking haha.

Now come on @Jack_Stroud_Bass you know very well that we all have to stand around talking about Arron's unusual drum kit!🙄

Thanks for that (TLRT to follow - I've run out again).

Thanks @Raymondo for the heads up!

Pleasure to catch up with you at The Prince Albert on Fri night, really enjoyed playing our set Thanks for par-taking in the purchase of the new album too- hope you enjoyed it!

@TeebsBrilliant- looking forward to meeting you at the Blues Challenge, it's a bit nerve wracking, but we're really enthused to be asked to play, especially since we're really on the fringes of the "blues" genre. In any case, we're well chuffed!
