3rd Annual Youth Showcase

The Dayton Blues Society was proud to host the 3rd Annual Youth Showcase to benefit the Pinetop Perkins Foundation at the Phonebooth Lounge in Kettering. This youth fundraiser, originated with the DBS, has now been duplicated with other blues societies throughout the nation, including Bowling Green KY, and Franklin TN. To date, the DBS has raised over $2500 in scholarship funds for both local and national youth to attend the Pinetop Perkins Masterclass in Clarksdale MS.

This year featured 16 kids from four states and plenty of local Miami Valley talent as well. This group pictured includes 10 performers who were invited and performed at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee.  Look for the 4th annual showcase in February 2018.
