 The Central Delaware Blues Society scored big at the 35th Annual International Blues Challenge competition in 2019. We had two entries in the competition; lower case blues representing us in the band competition and "Lock Up The Liquor" by The Little Red Rooster Blues Band representing us in the Best Self-Produced CD category. 


lower case blues made the semifinals on Friday night out of 108 other band entries . They played a great set and blew the doors off of the Blues City Cafe in the semifinals as they competed against 5 other bands in that venue. Congratulations to them for making the semifinals. This is the second time they have gone that far (2015 and 2019) and we are very, very proud to have them representing the Central Delaware Blues Society.  Thank you gentlemen for doing what you do so well! 


The Little Red Rooster Blues Band submitted their latest CD "Lock Up The Liquor" to us for the Best Self-Produced CD category. Our independent judges had three CD's to evaluate this year and although never an easy task they picked this CD as our winner to be submitted to the IBC competition. The CD was ranked by the Blues Foundation among the best 5 submitted this year and it was announced as the overall winner in this category on Saturday January 26th. Congratulations to The Little Red Rooster Blues Band for winning this category. Great job!
