I fielded a few questions this year on why we usualy don't see repeat artists at the Boogie.
I have to admit at one point I thought the same. Mind you, I'm not staff per se, a follower as are you, but,
I am glad they don't. Each year, I find X artists I have never heard of before, and I am so glad that Brad and Mike take the time to put together such an interesting mix. Something for all.
This year, to me personally, being a photographer in the pit, I loved Bernard's vocals and harmonics. Awesome. I took lessons on guitar at age 7, (that's 1966) and was trained classically. I closed my eyes at times in the pit and listened to his octaves, both guitar AND VOICE. WOW.
So, being a subscriber to Pandora, I started a Bernard Allison station. In the first day, I heard Joe Bonamassa, and then Joe Kelly Phelps.
If you have not heard of these folks, stop what you are doing and search them on You Tube NOW.
I am wondering, should I create a board on this forum about artists you got to check out? Mind you, it's not to suggest what they should have, just, what we should listen to.
Love the Blues, Love the Boogie.
