Saturday Afternoon 29th July 2006
- Main Marquee Stage
|Hamilton Loomis (USA)
Saturday afternoon opened with one of the new young guitarists from the
USA, Hamilton Loomis and his band. Hamilton plays a modern style of
Texas blues playing both guitar and harp. His set, which consisted of
original numbers from his “Kicking It” CD, was greatly enjoyed by the
audience especially his walkabout through the marquee and his duels with
Vince on sax. Songs included in the set were 99 Miles from Nowhere, You
Got to Wait (written with Bo Diddley), Just for You and No. No, No. His
standing ovation was truly justified.
|Kyla Brox Band (UK)
Kyla Brox and her band were up next. As a variation to her usual set
Kyla and bassist Danny (on acoustic guitar) kicked off with Today I Sing
the Blues and Backwater Blues. The band joined them on stage for the
rest of the show which included covers Don’t Mess With My Man, and
original songs. Kyla, as always played flute during a couple of numbers.
Marshall on guitar and Tony on sax provided tasty solos throughout the
set especially on Guilty.
|Matt Schofield Band (UK)
The Matt Schofield Trio completed the afternoon session with a strong
set of jazz tinged blues. Matt's band is unusual in that there isn’t a
bass player, all low register work being performed by organist Johnny
Henderson. Songs included this afternoon were Satisfaction Guaranteed,
Sifting Through Ashes, Sitting on Top of the World and The Letter.
Hamilton Loomis joined the band during the encore.
