Winners of the NEOBA 2017 Blues Challenge

It's still a bit surreal but J.J. Vicars & The Desiatos won first place in the NEOBA 2017 Blues Challenge band category. Dressed to the nines with Denny Wright anchoring on bass and Robert Johnson swinging on drums the band kicked off their set with the jazzy simmering slow Blues of "Outskirts Of Town", stormed through the instrumentals "Stinky Twinky" and "Downhome", and closed it out with the flag-waver "Hucklebuck". In January 2018 the band goes down to Memphis to compete in the IBC. Custom tailored suits are in the works.
