RagnBone Man was excellent and worth a look Sunday night on Jambalaya. Big man, big voice and nice stage presence. Crowd loved him.

Jason Isbell and his band and are at the top of their game. Great set Thursday night although shame the crowd was a bit small. They on again Saturday at 6pm and would be great if more people turned up.

Joe Louis Walker was great fun. Don’t miss him in Juke Joint Friday night.

Gov’t Mule were impressive as always and the crowd lapped up the slightly ragged version of Southern Man with Lucas Nelson guesting. Warren Haynes said it was a first but don’t expect a repeat Friday as they will play a totally different set.

Finally, nice start to my day with Holy Holy on Mojo. Shame they didn’t get a second set somewhere.

Gomez & William Crmyighton (new genre? Anger Rock?) stand outs for me today.
Honourable mention Joe Louis Walker.
Rag n Bone Man, when I could hear his voice. Bass & drums (esp kick drum) way too loud where I was. Did improve after a few songs.
Good start to festival.

And Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, saw them at The Enmore on Sunday, planning to see them on again on Saturday.
Google Bernard Zuel's review & then go. As he says, not a country band.

Rag n Bone Man sounded good close up but Mojo has always been inconsistent to my ears anyway. Sound in Crossroads for Jason Isbell was perfect. heard every word from in front of sound desk.

Could also hear the conversation between the Mule's engineer and guys backstage. Very distracting.

Citizen Cope was brilliant. A great start.

Holy Holy were great. Please have them back. As said pity they only had the one performance.
Rag'n'bone man -jeez that guy has a voice.
New Power Generation - Jambalaya went off. A celebration of Prince

Riff Raff and Jason Isbell. Sound was amazing the one he did solo was jaw dropping. It was a trip looking around after every second song and watching people basically fixing themselves up from having a good cry. Best songwriter on ground for Thursday night for sure. Very hard act to follow. Worth the entry fee alone. Not sure what was happening with the wailers at the end of the night but the crowd were right into it.

Elephant Sessions lifted the roof off of Juke joint. Made my Scottish heart burst to hear the crowd scream while dancing their backsides off to some of the best and most exhilarating fiddle music have heard. Talk about getting the party started. Bring them back for the 30th and book for five nights.

Loooved Holy Holy ( and yes...let's have them back...once was never enough).
Hurray For The Riff Raff were satisfyingly great, and were above expectations....
Rag 'n' Bone Man was fabulous.
Heard William Crighton while having a sit down at The Tooheys Bar, and will definitely be going for a closer look later today.

Afro Celt Sound System - A joyous and raucous surprise that had Delta jumping. One of the reasons I love BF. Don’t miss them in Jambalaya Sunday afternoon

Mia Dyson - nice set and can play that guitar. what a nice discovery.

I’m with you on this.
I have been listening to this band for quite a while so was happy to see them live & they lived up to my expectations.
Best surprise for me were elephant sessions playing the juke joint Friday.


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

It's great that we finally had Bobby Rush make his Bluesfest debut at 84 years young. What an astonishing performer. I loved his powerful performance with his band on Friday night at Delta and then yesterday evening at Juke Joint I saw him perform solo. Just Bobby singing, telling stories and playing guitar and harmonica. And what stories they were!. He's been performing for 68 years and is still at the height of his powers. Unfortunately I was unable to stay for his 10.30 pm performance at Juke Joint with his band but I imagine it would've been a real show stopper. Thank you Bluesfest for bringing Bobby to Australia and giving blues lovers the opportunity to finally see this absolute legend.

If you were there you would have to admit Waffles is understating it. The music was great but the two ‘dancers’ were unnecessary. Let’s be honest, Booty shaking was their key task. Mrs Nelson said it just made her uncomfortable and she is no prude.

Don’t watch it then. If your affended by that I feel sorry for you. The show was awesome and the girls fit the performance perfectly. They aren’t forced to be there nor where you.

Agree with Skot be it what we watch listen to or attend we can switch off change Chanel or walk away.

Peter Noble has stated that James Brown was his greatest booking.
You will recall that at Bluesfest 2004, James had two dancing girls out the front with his initials on their white bikini bottoms.
Great marketing ploy from the godfather of funk.
Congratulations to Bobby Rush for adopting the same approach.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.
