Hi ! Our english is not very cool, so I will continue in french, but please take the time to translate )

Nous sommes de Lyon,
nous sommes venus en Suisse pour decouvrir ce festival et assister au maximum de concert, en particulier celui de BHIC
C'etait la premiere fois que nous assistions a votre concert et c'etait vraiment intense !
L'intention que vous mettez dans chaque note est vraiment incroyable. J'aimais les Cd, mais je ne savais pas a quel point vous viviez toutes ces chansons.
En plus de cela nous avons eu la chance d'etre au premier rang et de recevoir chacun une baguette de M. Charles !! ( Que nous remercions beaucoup )

Merci pour cette prestation, et j'espere qu'un jour on jouera sur la meme scene.

It had me so hard after every BHIC concert to walk away in my "normal life", 'cause the music, the lyrics and everything else means so much to me, that i forget about everything and just live in the moment...So, after every concert i need a long time to think about it and how great it was and so on.

I'm so GRATEFUL that you don't forget our little country and come back once in a while.

I don't need to say how absolutly fantastic the concert was, you can read it all above... i feel the same.

Please come back soon - in the meantime we will wait and listen to your music.

Take care!

Well, that's what I call a perfect day:
During the concert of Vanessa da Mata we met Jason and Leon, had a short conversation and a handshake. Later THE greatest concert, with this amazing vibes. It was, like every concert of BHIC, brilliant. Thanks to the "Rockabilly"-Rowdie who threw the guitar pics to the crowd.
Thank you so much for this 3 concerts in switzerland. They were great and they made my summer!

Your music means so much to me, it keeps my brain and everything else working=)

Thank you guys, keep going on and come back soon. It's always a pleasure to see you live.

Thank you so much!

Another great show by the BH&IC! A perfect mix of newer and older songs (including a nice duet with Vanessa da Mata). Juan Nelson's intro on Jah Work set the tune for the whole setlist. And indeed, Ben offered us some of his brilliant solos (Excuse Me Mr., Whipping Boy). Leon made the whole audience jumping around on Burn One Down. We all wished it was longer but it seems the festival crew wasn't "looking for extension", even for the last show on the Grande Scene. I'm looking forward to the upcoming tour!

Amazing, so talented, first-class, gorgeous and sooooo good!!! Thank you so much to Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals for the fantastic show! It's the 5th time I see BHC on stage and the only thing I have to say is that it's definetly too short!! I could hear them playing for hours. Thank you for all the emotion you gave us yesterday! See you very soon in Switzerland! Emilie.
