*Ruler of the hill contest

We choose to reduce contests at BCB. So, are you ready for an experiment?! Ruler of the Hill contest will – only – take place if the energy of the night allows it. It will be a circle share and challenge oriented format. Anyone can jump in, in any constellation and challenge the ‘Ruler of the Hill’. Those who stay the longest take home the title of Big City Blues Ruler of the Hill
