I went to see Watermelon Slim at Diggers Bar in Hamilton and mate, he was so good. Excellent harmonica player, awesome slide guitarist and had he vocals to match. Plus hes a good entertainer too! The guitar player with him, Steve 'Guitar" Gilles, was just magic. And Darcy Perry as special guest, well, you couldn't ask for a better local bluesman to join in. I enjoyed myself is a total understatement!

Take a listen to my chat with Watermelon Slim that took place right before he went on stage at Diggers Bar, its quite revealing to say the least. And finally, a big thank you to Simon Vare of Yellow Eye Music for setting this all up and bringing Slim here. Enjoy.
