IBC 2017 The Balkun Brothers

IBC 2017 The Balkun Brothers

The Balkun Brothers were in the Solo/duo competition.  They played the Blues Hall, a traditional solo/duo venue.  But these guys are anything but traditional.  They brought more excitement and energy than half of Beale Street.  Each night the crowd got bigger and rowdier.

They made it into the semi-finals and left a big impression.  It would not surprise me if they got more bookings than many of the finalists.
