They got the crowd energized and excited by delivering the kind of Blues music they come to hear. In doing so they were an important contributor to the success of this year's festival. Their unique expression of the Blues, blending in some of the classic rock that has its roots in the Blues, appealed to a broad base of our Festival attendees."
