What a glorious day we’re having as I write this. It’s going to be a perfect Friday night for performances in Forsyth Park on the penultimate day of the Savannah Jazz Festival.
For the lineup and a few tips for enjoying the action, check out our post from earlier this week.
The early evening sprinkles and generally humid weather might have scared a few folks off last night, but the crowd was pretty good by the time Blues Night really got rolling.
The “bandshell” in Forsyth makes for a great backdrop from a distance, and the sound was pretty much perfect in clarity and volume.
But even Watermelon slim noted the “pond” and “moat” between him and the audience after he dropped a harmonica into the turned-off fountain. He seemed to want to get closer to the audience and kept walking out in front of the monitors.
I caught a little bit of Eric Culberson Band’s set, and then most of the sets by E.G. Kight and Watermelon Slim & The Workers.
