Friday Night at Chilfest is always a good night for me with last year having some great Soul and funk artists form the 80’s.

The set was good with the added bonus of an amazing musician ‘Snake Davies’ who played all manor of saxophones and flute, I would go as far to say one of teh best players I have heard in a longtime and I have seen and photographed, ‘David Sanbourn’, ‘Courtney Pine’ and many other great saxophonists.

What a nice bloke too, I had a long chat with him back stage and he even gave me a copy of his latest CD. Cheers Snake 🙂
