Special shows, August 27: Paul Ubana Jones -- 6pm at Waiheke Golf Club. Lazyboyz Blues Brothers Tribute Show 9pm at the Woolshed. Blues man: Festival performer Shayn Wills was the answer to last week's online competition to win $130 worth of blues festival tickets. People have another chance to win this edition, and our final competition is next week. Plans are hotting up for this year s Blue Bubble Taxis Blues Festival which will mark the end of winter on August 27 and 28. The third annual festi- val will take place at five venues -- Stefano s, The Goldie Room, Casita Miro, Waiheke Golf Club and the Woolshed -- with a mix of blues-based music to suit all fans. Festival director Delyth Morgan-Coghlan says earlybird tickets have been selling like hotcakes , with the special Blues Brothers Tribute Show at 9pm on Saturday night and All- Venues-All-Shows passes almost sold out. A one-off Paul Ubana Jones performance at the Golf Club at 6pm on Saturday is also proving popular and a further Saturday night show with Shayn Hurricane Wills at the Goldie Room has just been announced, which will be included in the regular festival pass ticket. Our competition give- aways in Waiheke Mar- ketplace have had heaps of entries. Two lucky winners have received $130 worth of tickets each, with two more sets to go in the next two editions, she says. A new slant on the fes- tival this year will be the choice of food on offer to hungry punters. Ms Morgan-Coghlan says: What we ve learnt is people also want some- thing good to eat. Some go partying hard on the Saturday and wake up with a little bit of a tired head on Sunday and the first thing they do is say: What am I going to eat and what am I going to listen to? So it s going to be a taste festival as well as a music festival. The chefs are all working on blues food menus at each venue. The Goldie Room and Casita Miro are opting for Cajun inspired food, a Creole menu will be served at the Golf Club, Stefanos is going for Italian Blues fusion piz- zas and a World of Food menu will be on offer at the Woolshed.
