TBS holds a blues challenge every year to select a band and a solo/duo act to represent the Triangle Blues Society at the annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn. Fundraisers by TBS during their “Road to Memphis” events help the musicians with their travel and lodging expenses.

In 2019, TBS solo act Jon Shain was awarded first place at the International Blues Challenge.
