CMW 2017: James Blonde at Adelaide Hall - Concert Photos
A friend of mine mentioned that they knew James Blonde, the second act to hit the Adelaide Hall stage on my second night out for CMW 2017. I turned to look at the band setting up, and did a double take. I'm thinking, I've seen these guys before, but I've never seen James Blonde. After the hard drive spun for a while, finding a fragmented memory, all became clear. They used to be Xprime and I'd seen them, and photographed them, at a show at The Horseshoe. Those pics are here.
Under the new moniker, James Blonde deliver polished, funky pop with perfect harmonies. I liked the new incarnation and especially noted the 70s style phased-out guitar parts on "Golden Vibes".
