Morning my amazing friends.
There are truly no words that can adequately express my feelings right now.
Euphoria is probably the closest single word…
When we came to The IBC this year we hoped to do well.
Reaching the Finals and performing at the Orpheum was unbelievable and a dream come true. The amount of love we have felt from everyone here is overwhelming. It’s like floating in a sea of pure light… where the sweet energy of the universe bathes you in its magic.
To say Thank you would take generations and to truly and clearly explain the powerful love we feel for this amazing Blues Family would be an impossible task.
On the moment we were chosen to head to the finals something changed forever… a new mountain top reached and the view has taken my breath away and inspired my spirit to undertake the next climb.. the next hurdle.. the next adventure…
I find it remarkable that any of this has happened to this Crooked Eye’d boy from a small town in California.
From the deepest place in our hearts we thank everyone for their kindness and support they have given us all week. We could not have done it without you.
The words I LOVE MEMPHIS are now permanently tattooed on my heart… and though you and I cannot see them… they shine like a neon sign on the Beale Street of my soul…
Crooked Eye Rising..
Farewell for now our beautiful Blues family… We wish you safe Journeys home…
Tommy & Paddy Marsh
