Virtual Vacation: A Day of the Blues--Bronze, Blues, and Brews 2008

They don't call it the Best Little Blues Fest in the West for nothing.

On its 13th anniversary, it was a day for those who like hot guitars and hotter blues singers. Ty Curtis, Suburban Slim, Julie Strange, Tom Boyle, Too Slim Langford, Henry Cooper, Big Monti Amundson, Eric Daw, and Jimmy Lloyd Rea wailed away while Julie, Becki Sue, and Janiva Magness lit up the crowd with the best vocal blues around.

Throw in great harp by Hank Shreve with Ty Curtis and Jim King with Becki Sue and Her Big Rockin' Daddies, outstanding bass lines and great drumming by all and it was a fabulous day.
