Hot off the Press! Remembering Little Walter wins Best Album at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis

And the man can skate too!

brown2Jason Brown, Olympic bronze medalist, US silver medalist and a native of Highland Park, IL is set to make blues history with his selection of "Juke" for his short program in this year's competitions.

"it's a great piece of music," Coach Kori Ade said.  "As with our choices for music in the past, again this year we have given Jason two very different genres to explore. This is how we push our skaters artisically."

"I've never done anything bluesy, so it's really fun to play with that and work on it," Brown said. (Ward) Rohene has made the choreography fit the music.  It's one of those programs that I am going to be excited to perform and hope the audience gets into it."

Jason, you and Little Walter are one of a kind, and we'll be behind you all the way! 

Join us at the 2014 Hilton HHonors Skate America in Hoffman Estates, IL (a suburb of Chicago) October 24-26, 2014.  Skate America will feature three days of competition in ladies, men's, pairs and ice dance. The field of competitors is expected to include several athletes who competed at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Skate America will be the first of six events that make up the 2014 Grand Prix Series. Other stops include Skate Canada, Cup of China, Trophee Eric Bompard, Rostelecom Cup and NHK Trophy. Skaters earn points throughout the Grand Prix Series to qualify for the Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final each December. The 2014 Grand Prix Final will be held Dec. 11-14, in Barcelona, Spain.

Blues fans all over the world will be able to see live performances from Jason Brown and hear one of Little Walter's greatest hits in a celebration of creativity and world class excellence.    (Source: US Figure Skating Association)
