On the weekend of the 3rd to the 5th of February 2012 I attended the Up The Creek festival near Swellendam in the Western Cape. After spending most of Thursday night at the BOS Ice Tea stage and the main bar at the festival it was finally time to make my way to the Bacardi Main Stage at the festival after 6 PM on Friday afternoon. After watching the genius that is Jeremy Loops it was finally time for SA Blues / Rock legend the Blues Broers to make their way onto the UTC stage.
These legends showed the UTC crowd what rocking out was all about. Albert Frost, Rob Nagel, Simon Orange and their drummer played one hell of a set. One can just stand in awe and admire the skills of Albert Frost (arguably one of the best guitarists in South Africa). This man is a legend. No question about it. I’m sure he was born with an electric guitar in his hands (like Dan Patlansky was). Albert Frost has achieved this status by playing at each and every Oppikoppi festival over the years (and not many musicians in South Africa can make that claim).
I snapped this close up photo of Albert Frost during The Blues Broers set at Up The Creek 2012 and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 13th of February 2012.
