"For as long as musicians have been congregating together, they have been
watching one another to find out who is the best, who to emulate, and who to
look out for when it's time for head cuttin'.  The camaraderie of the musicians,
the musical heritage of Memphis, and the appreciation of the genre by fans the world over is why The Blues Foundation first decided to hold a competition in 1985 to find the best unsigned blues bands."
