This year marked my third year DJing at the wonderful Chase Festival, and my second as DJ coordinator. As ever, I had an absolutely blast.
This set list was requested by a few people – and please accept my apologies for posting a little later than I’d intended.
This year, there were two fantastic Chase after-parties, on the Friday and Saturday nights, and to cut a long story short, on one of the late night venues, while a Lindy room was rocking it upstairs, downstairs some blues happened. I’d had a small equipment crisis, and mislaid some of my sound gear – luckily it was found the following day – so I was DJing “blind” – and couldn’t preview anything. This set, in consequence, consisted of a whole bunch of my blues favourites – so there will be some overlap with earlier setlists, but I hope you all find it useful nonetheless. Enjoy!
