Phuket Radio at Blues Festival

This year The Phuket International Blues Rock Festival presented by Phuket radio 91.5 FM and held at a new venue Laguna Phuket which turned out to be ‘the best year yet’ according to the many Phuket people that attended and the Phuket tourists were also well pleased.

Topping the bill on Saturday was Chris Thomas King and he provided a set that had the whole crowd using the ‘wow’ factor after over an hour on stage. Akasha the Malaysian band topped the bill on Friday to a packed house and even with the typical Phuket weather delivering just one rain storm that can ruin outside events in Phuket the show did not miss a beat.

Local bands Colin Hill and Rockin Angels were seen and heard and also interviewed at 91.5 FM

Andy all smiles as usual.

With big credit to the event organizer Andy Andersen an all the Phuket people that step up each year to make this event happen whom without the volunteers and support of all the International as well as local artists this show would not be possible, the Phuket tourist Police also were there along with many other organisations including the Rotary Club of Patong beach.
