It is time to say thank you to the 81 musicians and the 21 bands who gave Bunbury 33 hours of absolutely awesome music at Blues Central in 2023. This was our first year and it has been like a serial music festival, with some of the best blues bands in Western Australia on show. Many travelled a great distance to spend time with us and for that we say a heart felt thanks. Thanks also to Pete Firth, Jen and Sarah and the Froth Crew for all the encouragement and support you unleashed. What a fabulous venue, what a fabulous bunch of people. Thanks to the ‘soundies’ Al and Jason for all your hard work getting the sound system cranked up, the South West Blues Club committee for working so hard to make this year happen, but most of all thanks to all those club members and fans who turned up each Sunday for our shows. 2024 will be a cracker with even more new bands, new musicians and songs you love and some you have yet to hear. Let’s keep the blues alive.
