When you think of blues, you often think about musicians who try to get rid of the emotional pain by using this form of expression and carry it into the world. But blues can be happy too. The Woodstock festival took place in the USA during the legendary Flower Power era. There was a serenity that today no longer exists. A blues night was realised in order to travel back in time and bring back the feeling of serenity up to present day.
The German band Maxoom opened the event. The freakish blues band from Freiburg im Breisgau dressed itself like a hippy band from the 60’s/70’s and revived the Flower Power spirit. Singer Sven Lück and his bandmates Bernhard Justus and Love Person enthralled the spectators with cover versions of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Crosby Still & Nash, Jimmy Hendrix, Alice Cooper and many more. Who performs with such enthusiasm can do nothing wrong. Maxoom said goodbye after one hour and left the stage. The audience thanked with much applause for the performance. Setlist Maxoom Stone Free Along The Watchtower Love or Confusion Come on I’m eighteen Foxy Lady Down by the River Voodoo Chile Sympathy for the Devil Hey Joe Purple Haze Gimme Shelter JCB was the next in row. The hard rock / blues rock and mundart Band from the Basel area started to rock on 10:50 PM. The trio convinced with catchy tunes which were well-received by the audience and made the you dance. New songs got played with „Peace“, „HEY“, „Magical“, „JC Spain“, „Trouble in the Jail“, „Balsam for the Soul“, „Cool Wind in my Hair“, „One Night in Bangkok“, „Moovy Groovy“ and „War“ tonight. It wasn’t boring at any time through the varied songs with influences from various genres. 95 minutes of playing time at a high level was enough to leave a great impression on the audience. For this Jean-Claude Banier and his bandmates Eric Strübin and Louie Maiello deserve respect. It was great and in the end I’m pleased. But one thing is certain: It’s time that JCB becomes famous.
