We are so grateful for the magical experience at this year Bluesfest. It was a very special eastern weekend full of music, friends and good vibes! Our Saturday and Sunday nights at the Juke Joint were incredible. You could feel the atmosphere from minutes before we started. Joining us on stage were the talents of 2 amazing dancers: Sandra Lucas and Claudia Vidal who won the spotlight of most of the photographers at the Festival. Also the great Milan Ring who back us up so well on her sexy electric guitar captivating the audience with her solos.
We made some new friends during the Festival like the guys from Mariachi el Bronx, Angelique Kidjo, The Beautiful Girls, Nicky Hill and Charles Bradley plus met some of our old mates Declan Kelly with the Diesel’n Dub crew, Nicky Bomba, Salvador Persico, Natalie and Marco from BKB and more..!!
