Advertise your Festival in advance
in The Blues Audience cheap, EFFECTIVE marketing for your event.
Here you will find pictures from a number of festivals and the musicians that play at these events are so exciting and talented, it makes my head spin.
White Mountain Boogie and Blues Festival August 2010
I wanted to show you more of where the festival is and what it has to offer this year. The views are inspiring, this is the view from the road to my hotel in Waterville Valley, brilliant.
John Lee Hooker, Jr. was much more entertaining and musical than I had anticipated. He really got the crowd going.
CB Roy, DJ showed up and to kill two birds with one stone, here he is with his friend and I wanted you to see the vendors and all the goings on up on the hill at WMBBF. This is only part of the vendor tents.
The climbing wall is a big hit with the kids and kid like adults,
P.S. that’s John Lee Hooker, Jr. performing.
My old bandmate, Arthur James and Northbound, winners of the Granite State Blues Society’s Blues Challenge (going to Memphis to compete this winter) started off the Saturday line-up.
Joe Louis Walker is one funky guy and he has Murali Coryelle touring with him. Murali is the son of Larry Coryelle, Jazz guitar player, and he has inherited his great talent and uses it for good (like a super hero).
The Barnfull of Blues Festival August 2010
Blues Audience Subscriber, Scott from VT, won the autographed guitar raffle at the festival!
Yo Boogie Chillen!
Great Job from all y’all yesterday afternoon! I’m so proud of everybody.
Due to time considerations, I had to cut a couple of short remaining songs at the last minute, from the Webster House kids set and a couple from Connor’s trio set. None the less, Connor and Kyle REALLY shined on those two songs and really turned a lot of heads!
Chris Fitz, one of the more renown electric Blues Rock players in NE came over, almost running, to see who the heck was doing that extended guitar solo (one of the longest and best of the entire day).
Kyle’s drum solo on “Wipe Out” was killer diller. The addition of Robert McClung on electric bass was a real contrbution to us getting our mojo on, and offered a nice, contrast to Dan on our funky washtub Bass player
( kinda like..before & after, historically speaking.) To top things off, Rob, no less, also did a pretty mean Snoopy dance!
Monique really wowed everybody with her soulful voice, dancing and overall stage presence! People, for the rest of day, kept asking me about her, including the musicians. Speaking of musicians, Daren showed off just how much he had learned over the last few months so tastefully, played a great guitar solo as well as terrific rhythm guitar. Brent found some sweet notes on the harmonica and had a good energy the entire time on & off the stage. Dan, was rock steady on the washtub as always, and Alex surprised everyone with his wonderful, rousing version of La Bamba. The young man with long hair (also from Webster house, whose names escapes me , taking pictures was quite helpful by documenting our performance and was a great all around, volunteer along with the tireless energy of our main man Lou Catano, who seemed to be everywhere at once all day long!
Many Thanks to you al,l as well as to all the parents, Webster house volunteers, Blues Audience, & my wife Nadine for all of their support. Last but not least, a big shout out of thanks to the Granite State Blues Association, Raising the Blues, The Blues Bank Collective, the National Endowment on the Arts & of course, our own, NH State Council on the Arts (for making TJ’s residency at the Webster house financially possible)!
