Boz Scaggs wowed the Sunday night crowd with his blues and rhythm sounds at this year’s Deni Blues & Roots Festival.

Back in Australia for the first time in six years with a familiar band of musicians, patrons were itching to see Scaggs and all he had to offer.

His performance featured tunes from his latest record Memphis, which was freshly released in March this year.

Memphis hit the shelves at an ideal time for the Deniliquin crowd to be one of the first to see Scaggs perform his latest songs.

Scaggs also performed classic tunes from his Silk Degrees record released in 1976.

Favourite songs included What Can I Say, Lido Shuffle and Lowdown, which each had the crowd dancing and singing along.

Mayor Lindsay Renwick said Scaggs was a ‘‘definite highlight’’, stopping the Pastoral Times after the performance to tell them all about it.

‘‘He was brilliant,’’ he said.

‘‘As soon as I saw Boz Scaggs was on the line up I was excited to see him

‘‘To see acts of this calibre so up close and personal is amazing.’’
