Basil Charles, Samantha Goodluck, & I couldn’t make it because we were busy working to make sure the Mustique Blues Festival runs smoothly … The response has been GREAT! Thanks also to the new state of the art venue on Bequia for hosting us last weekend. We are here till FEB 2 & have a gig on St. Vincent this weekend.
THANK YOU AGAIN to everyone, friends, musicians, Mick Jagger &The Rolling Stones for continuing to show the support BLUES music DESERVES.

He had all the right moves. He played air GTR better than I was playing real GTR. Can’t wait to hear him in 10 yrs. He had all the bikers, blues aficionados, beachcombers, outta towners … all of us just couldn’t take our eyes off him. I had to get him on stage and he stole the show … WITHOUT A GTR – Imagine what he’s gonna do when he gets one!
YOUNG PEOPLE NEED ACCESS to creative endeavors. Now more than ever! Please GIVE GIVE GIVE … SUPPORT them in anyway you can … I CAN’T SAY THIS ENOUGH – THERE is great HOPE in the eyes of a child excited to LEARN and understand.
