Sunday’s Blues and Brews Festival in Ventura featured lots of great BBQ, plenty of good beer and some of the best blues around. The unique design of the Mission Park venue worked great, putting two stages across from each other so as soon as one act finished, the crowd just turned their chairs around to the other stage and the show continued. The fun started with Jonathan “Boogie” Long and the Blues Revolution, followed by Michael John and the Bottom Line, Gary Hoey, Tangled Underfoot, Sister Sparrow and finally the headliner, Tab Benoit. Both Tab and Jonathan paid homage to their home state, Louisiana.
