International Blues Challenge Finals

After a week of shooting tons of great blues acts up and down Beale Street it was finally time for the finals. You could not ask for a better venue than The Orpheum for the grand finale. Lighting for photography on Beale Street clubs (and Memphis venues in general) is always a mixed bag so I was happy to finally have some good light in which to photograph. I didn’t get to stay for the whole show (Dawn Tyler Watson won the whole thing) but the acts I did get to photograph were amazing. Bands photographed are (in order): The Souliz Band featuring Sugar and Spice (2nd Place Band), Al Hill (1st Place Solo/Duo), SOBO Blues Band, Wes Lee, Johnny Pink and the Intrusion, Sugar Brown
