One hundred and thirty blues acts from around the world compete for cash, prizes, and industry recognition. The Blues Foundation will host the 23rd International Blues Challenge February 1-3, 2007, in Memphis, TN.

The world's largest gathering of blues acts represents an international search by The Blues Foundation and its Affiliated Organizations for the Blues Band and Solo/Duo Blues Act ready to perform on a national stage, but just need that extra break. Preliminary round of competition features acts performing in clubs up and down Beale Street.

Media Sponsors include XM Satellite Radio, House of Blues Radio Hour, Big City Rhythm and Blues, Blues Festival Guide, Blues Revue, BluesWax, Downtowner magazine and Living Blues.

The 23rd International Blues Challenge is sponsored by bandvillage, Blues Revue, Budweiser, Fed Ex, Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau, sonicbids and XM Satellite Radio.

The list of blues artists whose careers were launched at the IBC over the years includes: Susan Tedeschi, Michelle Wilson, Michael Burks, Tommy Castro, Albert Cummings, Larry Garner, Richard Johnston, Zac Harmon and Matthew Skoller.

"Winning the International Blues Challenge is better than having a $100,000 publicity budget"--2004 IBC winner and 2006 Blues Music Award Best New Artist Zac Harmon
