"Music for the Soul" Concert
Tuesday December 6 7 PM
805 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo
Hayden Fogle and Vin DeRosa will be representing Western New York at the next International Blues Challenge (IBC) held in Memphis Tennessee January 31-Feburary 4, 2017. The International Blues Challenge represents an international search by the Blues Foundation and its Affiliated Organizations (mostly Blues Societies) from around the world. Each affiliate Blues Society holds a competition for which the winners in both the full band and Duo category are selected to participate at the challenge.
Hayden Fogle and Vin DeRosa won the Duo category of the competition held by the Blues Society of Western New York. The IBC has evolved into the nation’s biggest and most respected showcase for Blues musicians ready to take their act to the national stage with over 250 bands competing in previous competitions.
To help with the cost of going to Memphis to compete at the IBC, Hayden and Vin are holding a fundraiser event concert in the TBZ Sanctuary on December 6 from 7 pm until 8:30pm with a short meet and greet following their performance.
Hayden Fogle, a member of TBZ, is a 16 year-old Blues guitarist who was given his first opportunity to perform with a band at the age of 12 along side one of his biggest influences, the legendary Buddy Guy (Kennedy Center Honoree). Since then, Hayden has been invited to perform with several other nationally known musicians and his band has been recognized as one of the top 3 Blues bands in Western NY. This year, Hayden was the recipient of first place runner up in the Lee Ritenour's Six String Theory Music Competition in the Blues guitar category, which is a biennial international competition that included entrants from over 40 countries
Vin DeRosa is a well known R&B artist who has been active in the Buffalo music scene for over 10 years. Vin has performed at multiple festivals including opening for a national act this year for one of the Canalside Thursday concert series acts.
