Saturday, July 21st, 3-11PM


The New Blues Festival in Long Beach has partnered with several musicians to produce the 6 String Showdown, a head to head guitar competition, not a battle of the bands.

Judging is to be based on skill, not speed. Judges will be looking for tasty licks played with feeling. Phrasing. Personal expression. Tone. Timing. Dynamics. Reflection. Solos that tell a story.

Regional judges include Bernie Pearl, Artur Menezes, Joey Delgado, Kenny Big Daddy Williams, Oklahoma Ollie, Mark Sells, Steve Artea, Diana Rein, Betty Rose, KK Martin, Lightnin’ Willie, etc, who will host an open jam for all participants at the end of each event.

One winning guitarist will walk off with over $5,000 in cash and prizes including a paid gig for his or her band at next years New Blues Festival.

We hope this event will provide all the participants an opportunity to jam with Blues guitarists they might not otherwise encounter and in the process share the camaraderie of the Blues and work toward building and preserving our Blues Community.

Come on down and cheer for your favorite guitarist, audience response counts!
