Have fun you guys.

Cool line up. I love Dave Hole ,first saw him playing with Chain about 1980 I reckon

We have the Bayou Boogalou happening here in Nola this weekend, although big storms are delaying the start tonight

It has a varied line up

With some Jazz, Funk, soul, blues, Zydeco and Big Band stuff so all bases are covered.

EG.
Marc Broussard. Tony Halls Nola Soul Stars, 101 Runners, Magnetic Ear. Leo Nocentelli and the Funkin Truth, Naughty Professor, Johny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, Cory Ledet, Walter Wolfman Washington with Samantha Fish, Honey Island Swampband, Sonic Bloom, Deacon John and the Ivories, Toubab Krewe and more. And it is free although they were planning to charge if you were not in by 3 PM on the weekend but the council vetoed that

Just want this storm to go away, we are meant to be watching the Pinettes Brass Band right now, but we are sheltering at home, as there is heaps of lightning as we speak.

I think it will be cancelled tonight as they just showed on the news craft vendors tents blown over and food tents loosing their roofs etc.

I just hope that they can get sorted for tomorrow and Sunday, so the promoters don't get taken down too badly, as they have put on a very cool free festival for years and this is the last thing they need

I just saw The Steve Edmonds Band gig last night at The Harmonie German Club in Canberra. It was insanely good and his band too. He did some awesome medleys of The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. I can’t forget his demonic playing of SRV’s ‘Couldn’t Stand the Weather’. And I must mention his bass player did some nasty bass slappin’ in the middle of it. Geez, well worth it for $15 for being a member of The Canberra Blues Society, they put on some awesome gigs and work tirelessly to keep the blues alive here in Canberra.

I agree with you entirely regarding the Canberra Blues Society.

Last night at The Harmonie German Club I saw The Shane Pacey Trio, (the guitar and voice of The Bondi Cigars) He had the club pumping with his funky and soul soaked blues. They are a dedicated blues band who continue to put on a good show. Davo Fester on drums who we saw at Bluesfest on percussion with Clarence Bekker this year. Paul Blasi on bass. Put on by the Canberra Blues Society. If anybody is in Canberra check out their website, there is always some great gig to go to.

Whitlams at the Triffid Friday night, was an amazing show, took me back. Debra Conway and Alex Lloyd were great support acts.

Then headed down to Twin Towns on Saturday night for Brian Cadd, Russell Morris, John Paul Young, Leo Sayer, and Marcia Hines. Great Show it was like a countdown episode from the 70's.

For my tastes,Robben is in his element in a Jazz or R & B setting.
It showcases him much more than as part of a standard four piece blues band.
Moonchild Blues is always a delicate highlight.
Final song was the classic BB King track from 1954 "You Upset Me Baby " instantly recognisable for the opening lines
"Yes she's 36 in the bust,28 in the waist & 44 in the hip,she got real crazy legs..."
Requires a horn section which will explain why BB did not play it often in the latter part of his career.
Lydia Pense at age 70 sang R & B & was also excellent.
My only question is why such an entertaining performance attracts 300 people but Ed Sherran can fill a stadium three times over.
When bandleader Rodger was asking for donations to be sent,it reflected on the cost of touring with a 20 piece band.
And emphasizes what it cost for Bluesfest to book the Jools Holland Big Band twice & Maceo Parker once,for our enjoyment.
I think the Brian Setzer Orchestra will stick to Japan being its downunder venue.

I hope you're wrong about Setzer.

Lloyd is always good.

I last saw him at Mordi by The Bay just down the road from me in March.

Which is near some of his old stomping grounds

He was also a guest on Helen Jennings great show on 3PBS recently and was very entertaining as usual

Saw Lloyd at the Stag and Hunter in Mayfield a couple of weeks ago. There's a touch of a new sound which is great. As always a great story teller, and good to chat to.
