Joe Bonamassa: Guitar Center Battle of the Blues

Guitar Center Battle Of The Blues

Guitar Center is once again searching for our Nation's top undiscovered blues guitar players. In help with their search they have asked Joe Bonamassa and Dr. John to perform after the contest at the event and don't be surprised if there are more Special guest appearances. Back in 2009, Joe was asked to perform and since then Joe has been a part of the Competition in one way or another as the performer, Judge and Emcee the last few years.

The Final competition will be held on August 18th in Los Angeles at Club Nokia. The Finalist will "battle" it out with each other before a panel of Guest Judges as they try to claim the title of "King of the Blues" for 2012. Each contestant will receive 5 minutes to set up and will perform live to an original backing track, developed by Grammy Award winning producer, Pete Anderson. The Grand Prize winner will receive:
