Is it just me or are there others who have seen him before who think that Thursdays performance was something quite special. To me it was far-and-away the best show I've ever seen him do. So far ahead of the other 5 times it almost made me wonder whether I was wittnessing a man totally at the pinnacle of his craft/genius or if it was actually an alien who had usurped his persona .
Whatever way I look at it, for me it was the high-light of the festival this year bar-none!!!!

I was there on Thursday night during his set sitting outside the MOJO but to me he was just background music in the lead up to Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite. Not really a fan, sorry.

I first & foremost came for Ben with one of my companions suggesting a Mraz watch - LOVED IT!! What a performer, what energy, what a great Band!! I'm A HUGE Ben fan and as much as I appreciate his acoustic performance, the fest made me want to groove, so with that being said I missed the IC's or even R7!! Jason on the other hand for me was like opening a oyster shell to view the beautiful pearl inside!!! "He F'kn Did It"!!!!!! :d/

I was lucky enough to be in the middle of the front row for him and I agree with the original poster that the quality and sofistication of this set was a further step up from all the previous times I've seen him. I really enjoyed the crafted musicality and variation that he bought to the show with his wonderful 9 piece band.

What do you mean "EVEN" R7???
R7 has been Ben's best incarnation to date IMVHHO :-)

Sorry but I just can't get that Packed to the Rafters promo song from a few years ago out of my head. It was a Jason Mraz song called "Ï'm Yours" and it got played to death.

Loved the heat that R7 brought for Ben, but I will always love Ben from where I discovered him & that was with The IC's!! It's one of those moments when the music takes you back...............& I had a moment back then that cannot be forgotten! Angel
