Fourteen acts will have 20 minutes to make it to Memphis today.

The bands/solo artists will hit the stage for the 10th annual Blues Challenge, presented by the Blues Society of Western PA at the Tonidale in Oakdale.

Each will play a 20-minute set, and one band and one solo artist or duo will be chosen to represent the society at the 2015 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. It begins at 1:30 p.m. with such acts as Mia Z, Jimmy Adler and Charlie Barath, Bo Hog Brothers, Pet Cro, Blues Devils, Paul the Resonator and Ruby Red and the Dirty Devils.

A dinner buffet will be available during the break early in the evening, and there will be an after-party/jam with last year's winner, Billy the Kid and the Regulators, at 10:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12; $10 for society members; $6 for students. The Tonidale is at 7011 Steubenville Pike. Information: bswpa.com.
