George Kamikawa on the Blues Train

The Blues Train is an event that happens between August and May. Imagine an old steam train, with 4 carriages housing 200 passengers, with one Blues act per carriage, it goes down along Queenscliff and rides through the evening over dinner, beers and a hearty crowd.

George was one of the musicians playing that night and he invited me over, I leaped on the chance and took my camera with me. Many great bands and good food was abound. I’ll never forget how the crowd was in that tiny carriage as it rocked side to side and George wowed everyone with his skills.

Unforgettable night.
