Bluesapalooza Style!

In recent years, visiting Mammoth Lakes has become somewhat of a regular getaway for me and my friends when we wanted a break from OC beach life. Surprisingly after all of our trips up there, we have never really thought of attending the annual Mammoth Blues and Brews Festival (aka Bluesapalooza!) until now. I figured that having this opportunity to attend one of the biggest celebrations in Mammoth would make for an awesome first post for LA Inspiration.

After purchasing the two-day party pass for Friday and Saturday, I really didn’t know what to expect. Friday was definitely a day to take in the live music. Although not too familiar with the headlining bands, I enjoyed each one’s bluesy crossed with country-rock vibe that made having barbecue sandwiches and warm chili in the picturesque forest of the Eastern High Sierra almost nostalgic. Saturday presented the main event and a more energetic feeling with all the top craft breweries from the West Coast offering unlimited samples of their amazing beer. For a beer novice, the variety was enough to provide a bit of an education on the different types and their flavors, not to mention stumbling upon some unique blends that had you tasting blueberries or even s’mores!

Of course my eyes were also focused on the great style that was ever present. With attendees coming from all over state, festival goers without a doubt demonstrated the eclectic mix of comfortable and chic that California is so well known for. Even the moderate rain on Saturday couldn’t break our spirits–isn’t that what hats are for?

After having a great time with lots of fun memories, I’m sure this marks the first of many trips up north for Bluesapalooza.
