This was the 10th year Cape Byron Steiner students have performed at the Byron Bluesfest, this year, like the past few years, with Kadina High and Byron High.
We met at the Artists entrance and spent time in the Greenroom and dressing rooms before the show, seeing the names of all the other artists playing on the neighbouring dressing rooms was exciting.
The kids met the famous transport legend, whose name is Teapot, loaded the gear in and we headed up to the Juke Joint stage.
The sound crew were wonderful, especially friendly considering it was on the morning of day 5. It is an invaluable experience to be treated as Artists on that large stage. The students love the quality of the experience and the sound every year.
The students rehearsed hard last term and brought some seriously magic sounds to the Juke Joint stage on the final day of Bluesfest.
The crowd that gathered was much larger than Mums, Dads, Aunties, Uncles, and siblings could ever be. Many general punters coming in through the gates were drawn over to listen and stayed.
They were amazing.
Congratulations on playing such an incredible set and for setting a very high standard in professionalism and interaction with all the Bluesfest staff we interacted with.
You are all outstanding ambassadors for our school.
Huge thank you to Bluesfest, along with Loani and Matt for your support last term and on the day.
