BEST FISH OUT OF WATER

Samantha Fish at Bonita Blues Fest

We were blown away by a few things at our firstever experience with Bonita Blues Fest back in mid- March. Even though it was the 11th annual festival, we’d never heard much about it. Boy, were we surprised when we showed up at Riverside Park on the day of: Parking was pretty easy. Seating in the lovely little park was abundant (and shady). The food and drink were flowing. And the music — just wow. One of our favorite acts was Samantha Fish, a scrappy rocker who treated the crowd to numbers from her “Chills & Fever” album that was released about 10 days later. The 2018 Bonita Blues Fest takes place March 9-10. We’ll be there.
