Blues Rules Switzerland was OFF THE CHAIN

Wow. Wow. Wow. Blues Rules sure does know how to throw a proper blues party. Top artists, great sound team, great food and amazing people.

I played Friday night on the main stage with the great Lady Trucker, Jessie Mae Hemphill’s cousin. The sound on stage was great and we had a blast like little school kids on a roller coaster ride.

Saturday I kicked of the day at 5 pm on the corner stage then I did a 15-minute set on the 45 of every hour. As soon as the main stage act finished the corner stage sound guy would tell me to start. then at the top of the hour, the next act would take the stage.

This festival has a special place in my heart.
