Saturday at #Westfest2017
I must say the team at Westfest put together an amazing day yesterday and with some cooperation of the weather it turned out to be another great Party in the Park. I saw 8 great Ottawa area bands over the course of 9 hours, many who were already on my “Must See” list and others who have now been added. My day started off with sets by Jezebel, Fernando Scatozza Band and Lucas Haneman Express. Then it was kicked up a notch with fantastic sets by The Clint Everson Band and Lyle Odjick & The Northern Steam – both who are now on my watch list for upcoming shows and judging by yesterday’s performance, the upcoming CD from and Lyle Odjick & The Northern Steam should be amazing. As expected, the evening was non-stop fun with the Jesse Greene Band, River City Junction and MonkeyJunk – all who have been on my watch list for many years as they all put on great shows. This was a great way to kickoff to this years Summer Festival season.
I’m going to take the next couple of weeks to rest up as I plan to attend a lot of different festivals starting at the end of June including DragonBoat Festival, Jazz Festival, Canada Day, BluesFest and Kemptville Live Festival. I only hope our weather improves as it has been far too damp and cool so far.
