Memphis and more


Steve on Beale St., ready for the IBC semi-finals

Memphis is the place to be if you love the blues, and the International Blues Challenge is the ultimate showcase.  Beale Street overflowed with energy all week, well into the night, EVERY night!  There's so much music history in one city, you need to visit more than once.
