Byron Bay Bluesfest 2011 | Review | Pics
Could this have been the best music festival Australia has ever seen?

Who knew that Mavis Staples was Little Feat's founding drummer?

Appreciate the review and pictures...would only like to have seen added that this gig by Ben Harper was the 1st reunion of his backing band the Innocent Criminals since their hiatus and his switch to Relentless 7. For those of us who have been fans of his since the early 90's it was awesome to see him reunited with Juan Nelson and also Leon Mobley, Oliver Charles, Jason and Michael. Unfortunately it appears to be a one-off gig with the others' busy schedules too but fans of BHIC hope that Ben will revisit that lineup again and again in future years.

hey col forbin, funny you should say that! bluesfest billed it as relentless 7 & to be honest, i for one was very confused when he came on stage. it was a great show though & it seemed like ben was loving every minute!
