The Modesto Bee and the Gallo Center for the Arts are currently sponsoring a contest in which local acoustic blue acts will vie for the chance to open for B.B. King at the Mary Stuart Rogers Theater on February 25.

Patterson resident and bass player for Mother Teresa & The Sinners Aaron Camp will be competing with band members Teresa Beaton (vocals), Logan Ash (guitar), Bruce Rodd (keyboards) and Eric Carey (drums) to win the contest.

In order for a chance to win the 20 minute session, an entry must attain the highest number of votes by Friday, Jan. 31 on the Modesto Bee’s voting page at http://bit.ly/Ktl3Yl.

The results of the vote will be sent to B.B. King’s management for the final selection.

Apart from playing at the Apricot Fiesta, Mother Teresa & The Sinners are acclaimed winners of the 2013 Modesto Area Music Association Award for “Best Jazz & Blues”.

They have made a name for themselves with a trademark throwback swagger that has garnered festival appearances and the opportunity to headline Modesto’s famed Fat Cat Music House & Lounge. The band is currently writing their forthcoming EP, with an expected release date sometime in December 2014.
