Blues Clubs Jams

what a great response the band received from the Sleeply Hollow Blues Club (Geelong) on Sunday th 10th of June. It was the first we played for the club and they made us most welcomed. we hadn't played with Travo for a couple of months, but it was like slipping on some old favorite slippers.
Today Ken,Ped and I will be at our own local jam playing many different players all great in their own ways. Lotsa different blues from hard edge british to low-down dirt.
On the 3rd of July the Powerhouse Blues Band will be featured at the MBAS jam hope to see you all there.
