UK Blues Challenge 2016 Review - by Will Munn, Blues in Britain magazine (January 2017 edition - published with permission)

Quote from Mike Hamblett, Robin2:  "It was a great pleasure to host the 3rd UK Blues Challenge at the Robin 2 on 12th Nov 2016. The whole event was extremely well managed from the outset and the show itself presented an array of first class talent from the British Blues Scene"

Quote from Will Munn, Blues in Britain: "Whilst the judges had to decide upon one name , we punters were the true winners, being treated to the best blues line up this side of any festival".


Review of the 2nd UK Blues Challenge 2015 at the Boom Boom Club, Sutton, Surrey on 25th October 2015.

UK Blues Challenge 2015 Review- by Bluesdoodles

Quote from Pete Feenstra, Boom Boom Club: "The UK Blues Federation brings welcome focus, boundless enthusiasm and extensive knowledge to the British Blues scene in general and the annual UK Blues Challenge in particular. The last three UK Blues Challenges were notable for both their professional presentation and the high standard of the bands that made it to the respective finals. In a world where it is increasingly difficult to present, promote and support independent live music, UKBlues is a vital cog at the heart of a vibrant nationwide music scene. Long may it continue to be so".
