The Word of the Week
Thinking about what is on my mind this week, the word that pops up is...."Next!" This time of the year it seems like so many things are going on, or soon
to go on and it may just be me, but
it seems like a lot to keep track of in order to avoid dropping a ball here or there. The pre-Holiday season is all good,
but it does feel a bit like the calm
before the storm at times. 
This week's articles feature information on another ticket giveaway coming up for our readers. In partnership with the Walton Arts Center, we will be offering a set of two tickets to the Million Dollar Quartet show. Read on below for more information and learn how you can enter. We also have an article on another upcoming event at The Juke Joint Project at the Pryor Center. The Divas on Fire will be performing a show at 7pm on November 18th following the Lights of the Ozarks Parade. Lastly, we have a date for our annual IBC Fundraiser. Please mark your calendar and consider supporting our funding of our Blues Challenge winners, the Downtown Livewires, upcoming trip to Memphis
to compete in IBC. Planning is still underway but read on below for
the ticket link and more.

And last but not least, a reminder on how to sign up to support Ozark Blues Society when shopping on Amazon. Please consider this option to support us while doing your holiday shopping.

Ticket Giveaway!
for WAC show
Million Dollar Quartet
Once again the Walton Arts Center will be partnering with us to offer
a set of tickets to one lucky reader
of this newsletter! This is a bit different show than a straight
up blues artist, but we think our readers might enjoy this special Christmas oriented show.
The Walton Arts Center shared the following about the show:
"Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis,
Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley come together again to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
Sun Records, now donned with a Christmas tree, garland, and mistletoe, rings with the sounds of the season and the chart toppers that made these four famous.
Follow along the gang’s usual antics as we journey through a story of Christmas past, present and future. It's a jam-packed evening of holidays hits and classic characters you
won't want to miss! Check out a teaser here:

IBC Fundraiser
Bound For Beale
With our challenge behind us,
we are now planning our annual
IBC Fundraiser. Ozark Blues Society is proud that we have been able
to offer an above average sponsorship amount to the acts  representing Northwest Arkansas
at the International Blues
Challenge each year. It may sound repetitive, but it's true, we couldn't
do it without your help! We would love it if you would mark your calendar and plan to come out
and support our fundraising efforts while cheering on our IBC bound act, the Downtown Livewires.
The date is set for Saturday, January 14, 2023 at the Meteor Guitar Gallery in Bentonville. 
We are still finalizing the details of the full lineup and developing the graphics, but the ticket link is ready NOW! If you want to grab one of the limited, reserved table seats, consider jumping in soon. Keep an eye on future newsletters and our website for more details very soon.
Tickets may be found HERE:
And don't forget, the 2023 International Blues Challenge is being held in Memphis January 24-28th. If you have never been to the IBC, perhaps this is your year to go and root for The Downtown Livewires as they represent Northwest Arkansas.
