CLICK ON PHOTO TO ENLARGE
On the 11th of May, 2014 - The Bar Mediterraneo of Teulada, was turned into a Sunday social "juke joint" where the hoodoo vibrations of traditional and Spanish-inspired blues music was casting its positive effects on all who were ready to feel the magic.

CBBlues.com invited all of its webzine subscribers as well and private and neighbourhood friends of editor, Karla Darocas and the music director, Tom Poole.

The CBBlues Sunday social and matinee show served up a Mojo menu prepared by Bar Mediterraneo husband and wife team - Luis and Rocio. The CBBlues barrelhouse rolled into action with an acoustic opening set by Tom Poole. There was a small sound problem that was ironed out quickly due to the excellent crowd participation. Thank You.

Tom's friend, Verde Maria was on call to offer some traditional Spanish dance and to get the hoodoo spell working into the room  More musicians from the Stop Blues Band were added to the set until finally, the young guitarist, the 14 year old axeman - Austin Slack from Murcia - was introduced. Together, they kept the mojo working.

Then, the CBBlues Mojo-Man of the year, award winning singer / songwriter - Emilio Martinez Chicheri took the stage and the microphone. He brought the mojo energy to a frenzy of shaking and shuffling as the dance floor rocked to the rhythms.

The raffle saw many gifts of wine from Casa del Vino in Javea, CD's from groups in Murcia, a black band tshirt from Austin Slack and an ukulele, which all the visiting band members autographed.

As you can imagine, there are hundreds of photos to go through and sort out.
In the meantime, enjoy the video below;)
