The Shaun Booker Band
2012 Winners- Kings of Beale Street Award, Memphis Tennesee
(in this case the Empress of Beale St, Shaun Booker!)
What is the King of Beale St?
At the annual International Blues Challenge, each performance venue selects one act they feel put on the best show. Those 13 bands performed at The New Daisy Theatre, where Shaun and the guys were selected by a panel of judges as the best act!
The Band thanks the members of the West Virginia Blues Society who made the trip here to Memphis!
And we are especially glad to see our fellow Columbus musicians Dan Dial, Lady Nikki Scott, Doc Adams, Ray Fuller, Keith Blair,
Jerry Hale and Mike Bisutti, and of course "Hurricane" Jerry Loos who hosted us as guests at his after hours jam session!!
The West Virginia Blues Society named Shaun the winner of the 5th annual Appalacian Blues Competition.
The winner advances to Memphis! For the second year running the band will compete at the International Blues Challenge.
Shaun and the guys were thrilled to be chosen by the judges out of so many talented acts, and wish to thank the WV Blues Society
and the wonderful crowd in attendence at The Sound Factory!
Wednesday night Jazz Lab with Shaun
is moving to a new location!
Stay tuned to hear about the new venue, dates and times.
