It rained for most of the day yesterday, but I was able to catch two performances at Bluesfest.

Curumin — This was a Brazilian Band. Brazil is known for good parties, beautiful women, & good music. At least I thought they were known for good music, but not this time around. I didn’t like the Singer’s voice and he also wasn’t a good Dancer. I wanted to give him credit for singing Beat It, but no, he should’ve just beat it after that, and actually he did. That ws his last song.

Brian Setzer Orchestra — This was great! He did his brand of Swing/Rockabilly music. Unfournately, it started raining soon after it started, so we headed home.

It was a short day 4 for us, but apparently the weather’s gonna be nice for the rest of the week starting today.
There’s TONS of shows still yet to come.
