Did you complete the line-up for BJBF2018, Hans-J.?

If not, here is a good little band I saw perform at the Mont Tremblant Blues Festival two days ago. They are Canadian so at the current exchange rate I'm sure they would be a real bargain...:-)

You can google more information about them...


A better video by someone else:


I also ran into Chuck Jackson again - the lead singer of Toronto's "Downchild". He wore the same shirt as 3 1/2 years ago in Boquete. And he remembered our little chat there...I've got the video from Boquete on my YouTube channel and this one was from 2 days ago. Sorry - my videography skills aren't very good - Sereyus-ly!


This one is much better:


Hi Walter, thanks for your suggestions. The line-up for 2018 is full, there's no slot left.



Maybe as a fall-back plan if one of your contracted bands cancels. Or for 2019 then...

I suggest to send your information to John Wolff, the new director of the festival. His email is john @ boquetejazzandbluesfestival.com

Will do, Hans. Thank you.

So general admissions seats are all out in the blazing sun?

Yes, they are just like they were in the amphitheater. It might not get as hot on the fairgrounds, however, since the seating will be on open, flat grounds, not in kind of a bowl like it was in the amphitheater at VE.
