FUN IN THE SUN

TOM POOLE
JAVEA * FEBRUARY 7TH, 2014Another fun afternoon at Platino's under sunny skies and the calm waters of the marvelous Mediterranean sea. Thank you to all CBBluer's that reserved and showed up for the matinee show.

Tom Poole was in fine form, as usual, treating us with his soulful style of blues guitar. Markus K, a talented guitarist, composer and producer was on-board with his style of folksy fusion music. He asked a super talented guitarman friend to be a special guest - Manu Rodriguez to join in on guitar. I did take some video footage, which I will post later.

It was a bitter-sweet show for me to know that one of our loyal members Paul Smithson, was not a face in the crowd on this day due to his sudden death a couple of weeks ago. RIP - Paul will be missed.

I know that I asked all present to give a show of hands if they would like our CBBlues shows to be more regular, but at the moment I just do not see how we can make this a reality. So please, keep the faith and I will keep everyone posted as to how things are shaping up.

Also, I would like to thank everyone who volunteered to help with the launch of a second Blues Picnic. The last picnic was a giant success, but too much work for just so few of us. With volunteers, we can make it bigger, better and enjoy it more if the work load is spread around.

Keep it Real,
