|Full moon over Bluesfest, as always.|
But this year Good Friday lived up to it's name.
In fact, I would even go as far as to call it Great Friday;- )
|Looking out from the food hall/tent.|
And since I'm writing this post up on the Monday, before heading down once more, I can say the weather has been perfect all weekend and hopefully that will continue right through to closing, tonight.
|Blue skies for Bluesfest.|

Listen to the You Tubes above.
I'll bet I never see him play in a venue this small ever again.
As the full moon rose over Byron Bay, the big acts came out to play.
Oh, and Venus, too.
At least I think that was Venus.
It was the brightest 'star' in the sky.
The night parade of luminous figures went past me, and I saw something that got my attention.
A goldfish swimming through the night sky!?!
Then it was off to watch Buddy Guy.

Buddy has been coming to Bluesfest regularly over the years, and is a huge crowd favourite, and it's not hard to see why, if you have ever seen him perform.
74 Years Young, was recorded on 23rd Sept, 2011, at the Grove Theater, Anaheim,California, which was my 47th birthday (the reverse of 74).
Although, Buddy was already 75 at the time, which kind of wrecks the sync a little : - (

|Old rockers fading away...or a bad photographer at his trade?- )|
Man, these guys can still rock out solidly.
It was a pleasure and an honour hearing them play.
I wish my sons could have been there on the night to catch this show to see and hear the music I was brought up listening to.
Nothing like a bit of nostalgia, is there?-)
Speaking of nostalgia, I also got to see Steve Earl play
