We were #blessed to be part of an amazing Daytona Blues Festival.
Every band brought their very best and the crowd was off the charts. They applauded, made noise, had fun and kept the rain away till the very end when Victor Wainwright and his band took the stage.
With just a short 20 minute delay they took the stage and brought the festival to a fine end. Looking forward to next year. A personal note of thanks from us to the sponsors, fans, bands, friends for being part of it all and making us feel at home.
This week the Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons with Phil Wiggins hold down the #1 spot. A fantastic release that should be considered for a BMA and a must for your collection.
Our Amuse Bouche features Electric Blues. A collection of newer hard driving rock blues to help you make it through the first stages of autumn.
This Friday we will host Bruce Katz at the Roasting Room Lounge & Listening Room for another Blues411 Concert. This is a return visit for the band and we are looking forward to a giant crowd.
Another event that just occurred was my being featured on the Roasting Room Podcast, as we spoke about the upcoming Bruce Katz show as well as the history of Blues411 and the blues in general. To listen or to subscribe to it visit here, it is show #19.
