Blues is about where you’re coming from and where you’re going. Everywhere you look you can see a blues song just sitting there, waiting to happen. It’s a reflection of life, everything, everyday. It;s what your spirit does when it needs to be comforted and revived. It’s all that is genuine and honest in music, past, present and for damn sure, future.” Andre Kriel (The Black Cat Bones)

History of The Blues Summit:

Mike Combrinck started the Blues Summit on the 15th November 2006 at the Tafelberg Tavern in Cape Town. This debut of the festival saw the reunion of the Blues Broers for a special summit performance, and with the help of Boulevard Blues, Albert Frost, Dan Patlansky, Delta Blue, Piet Botha and Southern Gypsey Queen, it was a great success.

In 2007 Mike entered into negotiation with long time bastion of Blues Rock, Richard Pryor to co-partner him in managing the Blues Summit. Richard ‘a solid man of Rock’ had an axe to grind and was sharpening his blues pencil to take the summit up a notch.His mandate was a musically successful summit with financial independence.

Tapping into his own musical resources, database and Blues Wigi Boards, Richard secured the sponsorship of Combustion Technology to help out financially.

Combustion Technology is a Company focused on Energy Efficiency.

Their core business is to concentrate on the supply of the most Modern Energy Efficient Equipment Solutions to the Steam, Hot water and Heating Industry.

Their goal is a reduction in Emissions and a decrease in Fuel Consumption
