2018 Colorado Blues Challenge Winners

Representing CBS in the International Blues Challenge in 2019!

Solo/Duo: Scott Hackler

Scott "Shack" Hackler is Colorado's own piano playing Blues troubadour. Born in Bloomington, Indiana, Shack has been a part of the Colorado Blues scene since 2012. At times his songwriting is humorous, at times it's heartbreaking, but it's always honest and true-to-life. His piano playing will get your toes tapping along with Shack's pure style that has roots in traditional and modern Blues, Gospel, Jazz, and Boogie-Woogie. Strong, soulful vocals will pull you in and tell the story. Shack's shows are fun and energetic, with plenty of opportunities for you to join in the festivities!

Mojomama's brand of "Contemporary Blues" is inspired by many of the blues legends who have come before them. Drawing on a lifetime of musical experiences on stage and in the studio, Mojomama combines elements that beckon the past but move you into the future.
