Each year the International Blues Challenge in Memphis brings a legion of blues acts from around the globe. Anyone who has participated in this annual event will agree the competition is intense. Any competing band making past the quarterfinals should be respected.
Representing the Magic City Blues Society, Lefty Collins took his blues sound to the finals of the International Blues Challenge. His success in Memphis is the result of spending years molding his blues sound. Collins’ guitar skills allowed him to spend 11 years as a house musician at the House of Blues in Chicago. Over his career, Collins has opened for shared the stage with notables ranging from B.B. King to Jimmy Buffett.
Collins has relocated to the Gulf Coast and is zealously spreading his impressive blues. Throughout each of his songs, the guitarist weaves talented runs across the fretboard. He is a master of the big Chicago blues sound with its swings and grooves. His electric live set should please the LuLu’s audience.
