I Put A Spell On You (#431)

The Blues Room, 23 April 2014
Episode # 431

Friends are telling me of the wonderful times they had at Byron Bay Bluesfest 2014. I've seen photos of the 5-day musical festival and have started reading online reviews, some of the best are at the Bluesfest message broad, and from what I can gather Peter Noble and his marvelous crew have done it again and delivered yet another outstanding festival. Well done Bluesfest, I'll see you in 2015! Pictured above is a photo of Jeff Beck and Joss Stone when they collaborated to perform, I Put A Spell On You, at Bluesfest 2014.
