aint't no blues

This is by far the best $10.00 you will ever spend.

Every year has been great, great music, great atmosphere, can't beat it :DevilGuitar:

at least check out the free stuff

I'll be playing in the park across from city hall on Friday with my band, Killing Floor. There are some good free shows there over the weekend, but I'd agree with Crossroads that the $10 is a bargain.

Killing Floor is on at 6 in the park. Saw Suzie McNeil tonight , she did a good job but nothing extrordinary. Also saw Garret Mason at Tir Nan Og, very tight 3 piece group, all young guys in their 20,s. Some very good stuff. BTW Killing Floor is an awesome local bunch for anyone that can check them out.

Killing Floor did a great set in the park tonight. After a boat party in the harbour we went over to the Merchant Macliam and saw JW Jones, very entertaining blues/jazz/big band fusion band. We got an invitation to a jam/party next saturday in Centreville and my brother met up with a couple of old band mates from Pat Temple and the High Lonesome Players. All in all a very good night...can,t wait to do it again tomorrow.

I spent a considerable amount of time in Centreville some years back...

Great people, always had fun and felt welcome in that part of the county:food-smiley-004:

I just got home from playing 2 nights at the Limestone City Blues Festival. I was playing at "Sol Latino" on Princess St. What a great weekend! Many, MANY talented players in Kingston.

Sorry, I haven't been checking in for a while. I'm not Jack, but I guess in a distant way I'm Dave's replacement since I'm the bassist in the band. There's been a number of drum and bass lineup changes over the years, but Jack and Maurice keep on going. If you get out playing make sure you PM me - I don't get out much anymore and I need an excuse.

Thanks for the compliment about the band!

Cheers :food-smiley-004:
