The Sonny Boy Terry band's heading off to Memphis tomorrow and here's wishing them well. Them boys gonna do alright! I stole the following message from Sonny Boy's website: Well, everyone, January is upon us and that means Houston regional IBC winner the Sonny Boy Terry Band and solo/duo act winner, Dupree begin thier journey to compete in the International Blues Challenge sponsored by the Blues Foundation in Memphis.
Your support has meant so much to us through this competition and we want to "represent" Houston the right way. The band is excited, inspired, while getting prepared to perform real blues for a real blues audience in Memphis on January 21st - 23rd.
Now, for all fans, this is a great week for blues lovers, and we encourage everyone to take time off to join us for an incredible weekend. Seeing your faces in the audience cheering us on when we perform can only lead to more success. If this is something you'd like to be a part of, please visit the Blues Foundation website at www.blues.org. It's gonna be a rockin' good time!
For everyone who cannot make the journey, but is still curious interested in how we are doing in Memphis for the IBCs, you are able follow us in real time at www.facebook.com/sonnyboyterryband or via www.twitter,com/sonnyboyterry . We are very serious about hoping all of you follow us and share this wonderful experience. We will do our best to upload pics, videos, and letting you how well we are doing. AGAIN. THANKS EVERYONE.

This blog will provide a piece of the answer to the question I've been asked for the millionth time, "Well, what are you going to do now?"
