Two KC blues acts head to Memphis for International Blues Challenge

KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Two Kansas City blues acts are taking their sound down south.

Jason Vivone won Kansas City Blues Challenge for best solo act.

The Mary Bridget Davies Group won in the group category.

Now they're heading to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge.

They will face off against musicians from across the globe.

The musicians are excited to represent Kansas City.

"It’s an honor because when I was a teenager I would sneak into all these clubs and I would get in so much trouble. They would kick me out. Now I can go to any club I want and say you know KC, I’m representing you,” said Vivone.

The International Blues Challenge is held once a year in Memphis.
