  1. The Miller Blues Band a.k.a. Red Dog made up of 14 and 15 stole the festival. These kids are really talented. They played with all their hearts and souls. They are the future of the blues. There are only 3 members. John "Miller", guitar and vocals, Tommy Pricenor, bass and Derrick Lee, drums. Derrick Lee is the son of Derrick, Sr., of the Lee Boys.
