Blues News You Can Use!
What a Change!
Did I just miss something, or does it seem to anyone else like we jumped
from the midst of a busy summer patio season straight to the holidays and their limited live music events?It just seems like such a short time ago, I was feeling the newsletter was almost too long...
and now, much less news and even
the calendar barely has any listings.

Even in the face of such a shift,
the special events available this time
of year can be very enjoyable.
One option to enjoy a touch of the season would be to attend the upcoming Christmas themed Million Dollar Quartet show at the Walton Arts Center!
The WAC has graciously offered our readers a chance to win a set of tickets.
You can SIGN UP NOW for a chance
to win tickets to the Friday, December 2nd show (8pm) at the Walton Arts Center. Read on below for more information and learn how you can enter.
Also, another reminder that the ticket sales for reserved table seats for our annual IBC Fundraiser has kicked off.  Please mark your calendar and consider supporting us as we raise funds for our Blues Challenge winners, the Downtown Livewires, upcoming trip to Memphis
to compete in the International Blues Challenge. 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 December 2nd WAC show
Million Dollar Quartet
Final days to enter!
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:
Tickets will be for the show on December 2nd at 8pm.
As we did for the last ticket giveaway, OBS current members (new and renewed included) automatically get a complimentary extra, second entry! To enter, CLICK HERE TO EMAIL SANDY
Put "WAC Tickets" in the subject line and put your name, email, and phone number in the body of the email. Entries will be accepted through midnight, Monday, November 28, 2022.

IBC Fundraiser
Bound For Beale

Ozark Blues Society is proud that we have been able to offer above average sponsorships to the acts  representing Northwest Arkansas
at the International Blues Challenge each year. It may sound repetitive, but it's true, we can't do it without your help! Please mark your calendar and plan to come out and support our fundraising efforts while cheering on our IBC bound act, the Downtown Livewires. The fundraiser will also feature our 2022 Best
Self-produced CD winner, Buddy Shute and the Motivators,
as well as our 2021 Challenge winner, the Jeff Horton Band.
The date is set for Saturday, January 14, 2023 at the Meteor Guitar Gallery in Bentonville
and will begin at 7pm.
If you want to grab one of the limited, reserved table seats, consider jumping in soon while choice seats are still available.
Tickets for this fundraiser are $35 for reserved table seating, and $25 for general admission. To grab your spot, click the link HERE:
And don't forget, the 2023 International Blues Challenge is being held in Memphis January 24-28th.
