The New Blues Festival invites you to take part in 6 String Showdown, a regional summer skill competition to crown Southern California’s best blues guitar player on the Main Stage Sunday September 2.

Bracket rounds will be held at:

• Campus Jax, Newport Beach, CA, Saturday, July 21, 2018 3PM- 11PM.

• Harvelle’s, Long Beach, CA, Sunday July 29 from 3 PM- 11PM

• Arcadia Blues Club, Arcadia, CA, Saturday August 4, 6 PM - midnight

• Paladino's, Tarzana CA, Saturday August 11 4 PM- 1:30 AM

Four regional winners will face off on the Golden Groove stage at the New Blues Festival on Saturday September 1 to determine the two finalists.

Two finalists will face off on Sunday September 2 on the Main Stage of the 2018 New Blues Festival to crown the winner.

A house band (drums and bass) will be provided at all events.

Judging will be based on skill, not speed. Tasty licks played with feeling. Phrasing. Personal expression. Tone. Timing. Dynamics. Reflection. Solos that tell a story.
