Bluespower rocked the Dana Point Food, Wine and Music Festival Saturday. A large crowd, enjoying tastes of wine from many different wineries as well as food as diverse as lobster, oysters, Persian cuisine, barbeque and German chocolates enjoyed the event. Bluespower really got the crowd dancing with covers such as Hendrix’s Stone Free, which featured guitarist Kenny Williams playing his guitar behind his head; and a soulful, excellent version of the Temptations’ Just my Imagination. The band’s original songs that blended funk, blues, rock and soul were also big hits with the audience. Overall, it was a good day for everyone; as a bonus, it was also a short walk to the beach from the event site.
