thought i would wander the jj and apra tents and came upon the green machine with bob abbott up front.great sax gave them a listen,they just got better. they featured the sassy michelle brown for a few songs and then
lisa hunt belted out a couple of aretha songs.you dont get much closer to aretha than lisa hunt. then noticed it was tim gaze on guitar.then found out bob abbott is mayor of noosa. great stuff-worth a listen.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

I saw the Friday Juke Joint set and half of the Saturday Juke Joint set.

A local told me that he was the mayor of Brisbane .

Peter Noble was backstage during the first set,looking very happy.

Without the introduction of Michelle Brown for a couple of songs,I would have moved on half way through the first set,due to the lack of a decent vocalist.

............Mojo Webb take a bow........

They introduced Lisa Hunt only for the last song,which was a passionate and impressive rendering of [You make me feel like] a natural woman,written by the ultra legendary songwriting team of Gerry Goffin/Carole king,and first recorded by Aretha Frankilin.

...................Lisa take a bow...............

Michelle was also great.

Bob and his guitarist should have kept entirely away from trying to do vocals,and let the girls sing the whole set.

Lisa was wasted singing only one song.

Michelle was wasted singing only two.

I left halfway through Saturday,because I was waiting for some female vocals,but my chances appeared to be low,as I could see no ladies waiting in the wings.

bob introduced the guitarist as tim gaze,who i think played bluesfest last year? but many years ago was in taman shud. he may have played in the morning of the earth epic a few years ago. i thought the sax player was great.

There is nothing I like more than a sax player and a guitarist playing off each other.

Like Robben Ford at Bluesfest 2004.

Or Warren Haynes at Bluesfest 2011.
