The Downtown Livewires have sadly not advanced to the next round but will be able to continue their networking while attending the ongoing competition with finals wrapping up on Saturday at the Orpheum Theater.

The winner of the Best Self-Produced CD contest will be announced at finals. We wish the best to the Ozark Blues Society sponsored entry, "You Gotta Move" by Buddy Shute and the Motivators.

Thank you to both bands for representing Ozark Blues Society and all of Northwest Arkansas!

About the Ozark Blues Society of Northwest Arkansas

                  Keeping the Blues Alive
                      in the Natural State

The Ozark Blues Society was formed in May 2001 and incorporated as the Ozark Blues Society of NW Arkansas, Inc., a non-profit organization, on 1/15/2002.  The Society was approved as a 501(c)(3) public charity on 5/6/2002.  The Ozark Blues Society is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Ozark Blues Society is to foster the development in the community of an appreciation of all types of blues music by promoting and producing meetings, lectures, seminars, concerts, musical productions and entertainment involving the blues; to promote public knowledge of local, national, and international blues music; and to promote historical research into blues music in order to perpetuate the memory, spirit, and music of blues artists who have not received just popular recognition.
