Jack de Keyzer IBC Memphis 2019

$4,691 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 66 people in 7 months

The Jack de Keyzer Band  are excited to be competing in the International Blues Challenge  in Memphis, TN this January 22-26, 2019.  We are representing the blues for Canada and the Toronto Blues Society and are competing with the idea to win, of course, as well as to showcase our original blues music to promoters, radio programmers, record companies and most importantly, blues fans from across the USA, Canada and Europe.   The Jack de Keyzer Band has been established since 1985 and  the opportunity to perform in the International Blues Challenge will be a major boost to the entire band. We aim to make our national Canadian fan base proud!  

 Thanks to your generous support we have raised $4000  and  have booked flights and a house to live in, (6 band + road manager) for 6 days and still are looking to raise enough ($2000)  to cover a van rental and meal expenses while we are in Memphis IBC.   We thank you in advance for your love and support!

Thanks to everyone for your amazing generosity, support and encouragement in our bid for the 2019 IBC. We made it to the Semi Finals and played our collective butts off.
(see Nick Harding's photo below!) On the way home from Memphis yesterday we found out our latest album, Checkmate is nominated for a 2019 Juno Award. So, it has been an amazing week and looks to be a great year for the JDK band. We could not have done this without you! Much gratitude from Alan Duffy, bass; Richard Thornton , sax; Rick Donaldson, drums; Nick Succi, keys; Brian Mortimer, tour management, and yours truly, Jack de Keyzer.
