Event:
A Groovy Little Hat is de Rigueur for all Blues Aficionados
Blues music is food for the soul, and the feast is on again at Blues on Broadbeach.

We were spoilt for choice last year, with artists performing on small stages in and around the mall every day, and who could forget the magnificent Vanessa Amorosi at the closing event.
