After the blues

Waterfront Blues Festival 2008
Sunday after the festival was over, I was sad that it was over. I can’t wait for next year’s festival. Curtis Salgado was the final act. He put on a great show. Over the years it has been fun listening to his music at the festival. I pray that he stays well enough to make it to next year. March Fourth Marching band was the next to last act. I got up close to the stage to watch their fun crowd pleasing act. Phoebe Snow sang with such a beautiful voice. On Saturday the Zydeco Swap romp was great. Duffy Bishop belted out songs with her fantastic voice. I am so glad that Reggie Houston has relocated to Portland. What a show that he put on. Until next year you can catch Blues acts at these smoke free venues: Halibut’s. 2525 NE Alberta St Portland, OR, Duffy Bishop plays there July 19, 2008. Kay’s Bar 6903 SE Milwaukie Portland, OR. Tillicum club 8585 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy
Portland, OR. All the venues go smoke free on January 1, 2009.
