It was the kind of concert that many blues fans dream about, blues legend John Mayall in a small bar, and for Nelson blues fans, that dream came true Thursday night at the Royal.
Mayall and his band hit the stage at the Royal for two back-to-back shows playing songs from the Bluesbreakers, Turning Point and finishing the night off with an encore performance of Freddy King’s Hideaway.
The songs were full of long guitar riffs by Rocky Athas and powerful rhythms on bass by Greg Rzab and on drums by Jay Davenport.
Even though the early show got started a bit late, fans left happy with their fill of the blues.
