Saturday, October 5th, don’t miss WBFO’s Buffalo Blues Bash at the WNED | WBFO Studios. Doors will open at 7p. The evening of performance will feature Ms. Hy-C & Fresh Start, 2019 International Blues Challenge Winner, and an opening performance by the Blues Daddios
Ms. Hy-C & Fresh Start, led by Saint Louis born, Jacinta Branch-Griffin, exudes a high-energy, soulful, blues entertainment experience with powerful vocals that gets the crowd up on their feet dancing. With a rich history connecting back to Mississippi born Blues legends and pioneers of Rock and Roll such as Chuck Berry, Albert King, Johnnie Johnson, Barbara Carr, Jerry and the Soulful Fly, Buddy Eights, Ike Turner, Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, and Muddy Waters. This well-seasoned band encompasses Chicago blues, Rhythm and Soul Blues. Ms. Hy-C & Fresh Start are Foyo Entertainment’s 2016 Best Blues Band winners. St. Louis Blues Society’s Road to Memphis Winner and First Place Band Winner of the 2019 International Blues Challenge. Their latest single, I’m Going to Memphis, shows their love of the “Real Blues” and determination to follow their dreams.
The Blues Daddios are not your “typical” blues band and like to play what they call “Varsity Blues”. They play very dance-able blues from the classic masters like BB King but also like to mix it up with tunes from The Allman Brothers. The Blues Daddios are a great and unique band and a lot of fun to see!
