"Billy Jones brings back the Thrill. No one who I can think of has taken a truly contemporary look at traditional blues with the musical and lyrical intensity of Billy Jones. A refreshing blast of the really great sound of Healing Blues, Jazz, Funk Music. Loaded with Rich Blues Tradition. B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Even Johnny Winter Flavors. I'd recommend his cd 'Funky Blues & Southern Soul - volume 1' to any avid blues listener and I look forward to hearing more from the reclusive Billy Jones.
This guy is the real deal and this is a great CD!"

I thought the new venue was great...with some exceptions...I was not happy that we were unable to get a good view of the performers at the VIP Stage...especially since there were no TV Screens. The area designated as the Back Stage needs improvement...it should be moved away from the Food Area because everyone took the chairs to view the performers...no good area to enjoy your food. BUT...the biggest complaint is the ADA accessibility!!! I asked where the Handicap line was when we checked in on Saturday and was told the whole area is Handicap Assessible...to who? Walking down the hill from the bus that we took from Dana Point school and then waiting in a long line only to have another LONG walk to the seating area was ridiculous for anyone who has trouble standing or walking long distances.....particularly Seniors! I did learn that on Sunday they decided to get 2 golf carts to help the handicap, but when I asked...they told me they would send one...never came by. This is a BIG issue for a lot of folks who enjoy the Festival, but getting in/out makes it nearly impossible for some of us. A complaint of this type just doesn't seem to get any response....
