One lucky acoustic blues act will get to perform at the Gallo Center for the Arts before B.B. King takes the stage Feb. 25.

The Gallo Center and The Bee are sponsoring a contest in which Modesto-area acoustic blues acts -- solo, duet, trio or quartert -- will vie for the chance to be the warm-up act for the blues legend.

Submissions of 30-second videos will be taken Jan. 2-16. Voting on audition clips runs from Jan. 17-31.

The results of the vote will be sent to B.B. King's management, which will make the final determination of who performs a roughly 20-minute set at the center’s Mary Stuart Rogers theater on Feb. 25.

To see the contest, go here.
