International Blues Challenge Fundraiser

Mark McGee and Buddy Shute will be representing the Fort Smith Riverfront Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge 2022, solo/duo category, this January in Memphis. We would greatly appreciate any support to cover expenses on our musical journey..... bar-b-que, hotel, bar-b-que, gas, bar-b-que... Thank you for helping keep the blues alive.

UPDATE: Huge thanks to everyone who has donated so far. The date of this event has been to May 6-9.  We still are needing funds and we're still welcoming donations. 

As incentive, anyone donating $25 or more, will receive the Buddy Shute / Mark McGee EP, "HARD AS NAILS." These are the songs that won the Ft. Smith Blues Challenge. 

Donors contributing $75 or more will receive autographed copies of HARD AS NAILS and Buddy Shute and the Motivators CD "Bar-B-Que." 

If you donate $350 or more, Mark and Buddy will perform for your event, within a reasonable distance. Hawaii and Cabo are considered  reasonable if you pay the airfare. 

Thanks for all of your support and well wishes. We're gonna represent you good!
