Each year The Cascade Blues Association honors those artists recognized for outstanding achievements over the past year with the presentation of the highly coveted Muddy Awards — named in memory of Muddy Waters. With special emphasis given to the local blues scene, artists, events and venues are nominated and then voted upon by the CBA membership, placing the selection of winners completely in the hands of local fans. This year, the CBA chose to honor Reggie with two of those awards, one in the horn category, and one in the performance category for his contribution to the Ray Charles Tribute Big Band performance.
Since moving to Portland little more than a year ago, Reggie has felt truly embraced by the local community-- and he is proud to receive these two awards that symbolize all the love, respect and support he's received from his adoptive home town!
