On April 23 Elvis Costello joined Mavis Staples and RHB for a rousing version of The Band's song The Weight at the Byron Bay Blues Festival. Elvis sang the Crazy Chester verse and joined in on the background harmonies. Good times. Elvis about RHB: "...what a BIG sound. I'da swore there were more than just three wee blokes up there!"
