The Young Wildcats are going to the IBC in Memphis

The Young Wildcats are asking for your help to get us to Memphis!  The Capital Region Blues Network selected The Young Wildcats for the Youth Showcase at the 2020 International Blues Challenge.  That's 5 musicians and 4 families traveling some 1200 miles to Memphis, TN (and back).  Spending 4 nights on Beale Street means lodging and a lot of BBQ.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for this band to play the blues in a world-renowned event! You can find out more about the IBC and the Youth Showcase at Our sponsoring organization is the Capital Region Blues Network at

Every contribution, small or large, helps.  Thank you for your support!
