Rockbadger Productions in association with Downunder FarmStays was proud to host the first ever K-Blues. With months of planning, and all persons performing as volunteers with a love of the blues, an awesome afternoon of live music was staged. Blues styles ranged from swampy delta, soulful west coast, and psychedelic sixties to driving dance styles which got the audience up and grooving. Seven acts were spread over two sets split into acoustic sets and full bands sets.
First up was the MC to introduce the event. Then the attendees settled in to soak up the intimacy of cool acoustic guitar playing and passionate vocal work. More acoustic acts followed in the traditional of just raw acoustic blues. As the sun went down the full bands kicked off. It was perfect timing. With darkness settling in a dynamic light show began to colourfully bath the stage and surrounds giving an explosive visual compliment to the pumped up performers. In this surreal atmosphere the bands and the audience were rocking.
K-Blues event was a collaborative effort of volunteers who just wanted "to make it happen". The goal was to successfully organise and host an event with the objective of establishing whether an ongoing festival was a viable idea. Of course, there were a couple of minor hiccups for this first attempt at holding a music event but nothing that really affected the great day had by all. Performer and audience feedback would comfortably be called a double thumbs up!
The first ever K-Blues was hailed as a success by all who attended.
