Kaz Clinches IBBA Album Of 2016! 31/12/16
And on the subject of awards - we first introduced you to Kaz Hawkins in April 2015. Last month the Kaz Hawkins Band won the 3rd UK Blues Challenge and will represent the UK at the 7th European Blues Challenge which takes place in Housens, Denmark on 6th, 7th & 8th April 2017 and the 33rd International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, which runs from 31st January to 4th February 2017! Not only that but Kaz and the guys have now added 2016 IBBA Album Of The Year for 'Feelin Good' to their trophy cabinet - thus making it an unforgettable year! For the, ahem, record - in second place was Joe Bonamassa's 'Blues Of Desperation', joint third was Aynsley Lister's 'Eyes Wide Open' and eighth was Stevie Nimmo's 'Sky Won't Fall'.
