with the direction bluesfest is heading with drawcards...seal,lionel Ritchie etc does that mean that you could expect culture club for 2019? or maybe delta even?

Instead of Rockwiz, I propose that we have The Voice on Jambalaya.

The new demographic mix has happened a bit too quickly for some long term bluesfest enthusiasts.
They claimed Thursday particularly had a different feel & audience than past years.

It’s the straight up lie that bluesfest pedal that annoy me. Tash Sultana didn’t have a full tent. I will repeat this again though.... 2018 bluesfest was my most favourite yet. It was perfect.

The Franti Spearhead Harper Johnson super band world exclusive.
All three on stage together, playing for 12 straight hours at Mojo.
Midday to Midnight.

I’m back baby, it’s been two years, but I’m back in 2019!

Seriously though, I’ve got so much new music on my shelves, I’ll put together a list and post something sensible soon.

Until then, old jokes rehashed and represented (my comments, not the Franti, Harper, Johnson gigs).

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion man...

Wrong thread. This should be under the quiz questions. What will the name of said supergroup be ??? The sleepy apnoeas? The frantically sharp spearheaded johnsons?? But random thought:

Oh for BF to reunite the sleepy Jackson- now there would be a coup to bring back a new demographic that crosses age barriers. Or even Empire of the sun on saturday night following Stray Cats. One can live in hope.

It's definitely a younger crowd now. I remember when I first started going (2009) it was mostly middle aged and older people.

ABBA are back together with newly recorded tunes on the horizon so it seems only fit they play bluesfest either in person or as a hologram.
News from the inside says they are heading down under
http://themusic.com.au/news/all/2017/09/18/abba-are-planning-a-2019-aussie-tour...-as-holograms/


They got the cocaine, oxycontin, mushrooms, marijuana
Vodka, plastic pop-off, twist one off
Yesterday I smoked, today I don't
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m waiting for the virtual reality version of bluesfest so if we can’t attend we can virtually be there.

Apart from the e-street band the best live act that I've seen in last 10 years is Preservation Hall Jazz Band from New Orleans. Given they play three (short) sets a night there, they should be able to cause some damage in Byron. Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Christy Moore, Hot Potato Band and Hot 8 Jazz Band, and a bit more Vintage Trouble, Willie Nelson, Blind Boy Paxton (again) John Cooper Clarke, John Boutte, Ice Man Special and some more Paul Kelly (the soul of Australia) would be great as well. Oh yeah and Nick Cave, Bare Naked Ladies, Old Crow Medicine show (again) Aretha Franklin and Iggy Pop (again) please Applause

Declanboylan0000 in response to Aretha Franklin, she would be awesome but she would never come this far. She continues to pull out of gigs and disappoints the punters. The last being New Orleans Jazzfest. Ah well you can still dream.

She’s on the top of the list of artists I wish i’d seen live. The closest I’ve ever got with association is seeing Chuck Rainey in ‘87 in a small club in New York. Her bass player who played on ‘Rock Steady’. He was a very friendly guy and a funky bass player. We’ve all got great memories.
