MOJO PARTY PHOTOS * 20TH APRIL 2013

The spell was cast and there was no way to stop it. The blues came to town and only a black cat bone and a mojo hand could break it!!

I really don't think anyone wanted to break the blues spell on Saturday night at the first of many CBBlues Network Socials. The Costa Blanca's ONLY Blues Network had its first social at La Tasca in Benitachell.

Bottleneck slide blues axeman Tom Poole and his band True Blue were pumping out the magic. On drums was Natiel and Brad was on bass. Celebrity flamenco and belly dancer, Maria - was on tamborine. Joining the band in the second set was rhythm guitarist - Salva.

The mood started off mellow as the full house enjoyed their blues menu of ribs, wings, burgers and other southern style delights. Then things started to whip into a voodoo vibe as the boogie came to power and people started to rise off their chairs and head to the dance floor.

The prize draws had winners in every corner of the room. Special thank you to Michelle Lodge of Milo-Holistic.com for a 25 euro reflexology treatment and to Reiki Master - Trudi van Dorp for her 25 euro treatment certificate. La Tasca contributed prizes of cava, wine and leather goods. We also had two prizes from AloeLand who make fabulous aloe vera gel with rosehip oil.

There were some local celebrities including Millie Munro of Benitachell and Benny Davis (journalist) of Javea.

Plus literary authors Chris Duffin & Harry Duffin and Lesley Sharrock (Javea) were there to get their blues fix.

All in all, it was a great first night - as first's go - there were a few bugs - but I am not going to worry!

As BB King says in his song - Ain't Gonna Worry My Life...

Ain't but one thing 
Give me the blues 
When i've worn a hole 
In my last pair of shoes
Oh but someday, baby 
I ain't gonna worry my life any more

Thank you to everyone for letting the blues come alive in Benitachell and for joining the CBBlues Network.
