Bull & Pickett IBC Fundraiser at Capitol Oyster Bar

On Thursday, October 5th, the Capitol Oyster Bar, in conjunction with the Montgomery Area Musicians Association, is hosting a benefit from 6 to 9 p.m. to support John Bull and Ed Pickett as they prepare to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, January 17-20, 2018. John and Ed won the solo/duo category at the Magic City Blues Society's Battle of the Blues Bands in July, which is a state qualifier for the international competition where they will be competing with over one hundred other solo/duo blues artists from all over the world.

Regional winners have to bear the cost of travel, lodging and other expenses, which can be high. Many of Montgomery's finest musicians will be joining John and Ed on stage next Thursday night, with a very special appearance by KING BEE, finalists in the band category at the International Blues Challenge last year.

There is a suggested $10 donation at the door and Lewis Mashburn, the owner of the oyster bar, has very generously offered to sell BBQ plates for $15 with all of the proceeds going to support John and Ed. Come out to COB next Thursday for some good music and food, and help John & Ed on the road to Memphis!
