Betty Fox, Better Late Than Never!
Hey folks….this story is a bit late in coming out! As many of you know, Betty Fox performed at the Flying Dog Café on Thanksgiving Eve, November 26. It was a very special evening. Betty and the band were awesome. They showed what they were all about by singing a bit of gospel, blues and soul.
It was a great crowd. There were lots of Betty’s fans in the audience, but it was great to see so many new folks at the “Dog” who never heard the band perform. It was an inspiring performance. There was a great deal of dancing and throughout the evening Betty mingled with the crowd and got everyone involved.
Betty and the boys will be representing the Suncoast at the International Blues Competition in Memphis, TN. The 31st International Blues Challenge will begin Tuesday night (Jan 20) with the International Showcase. Wednesday and Thursday night (January 21-22) quarter finals will be conducted. Youth Showcase and Semi Finals will be held Friday night (Jan 23). Saturday (Jan 24) IBC will conclude with Finals in the beautiful Orpheum Theater.
****DEC 14, 5-9… Come out to Skipper’s Smokehouse to help Betty raise money to get to Memphis in January for the IBCs! Selwyn Birchwood will open the show.
