With a voice like honey poured over a thunder, a howling, beat up old Gretsch guitar and thumping animalistic drums, JP & The Troubled Waters mix their unique brew of dark Australiana and roaring swamp blues perfectly. After releasing their Debut
EP – 'Delta Veins' in December and following it up with an interstate tour, the momentum and force this Melbourne duos' train is growing stronger and proving to be unstoppable. $10 on the door.
White Lightning are a pair of raucous, whiskey drinking, happy-go-lucky scamps hailing from Melbourne. A 120 proof blend of hill-country, fingerpicking blues and slide guitar with some Chicago style crunch. With influences ranging from R.L Burnside, Son House and The White Stripes, White Lightning has been moving hips and wetting lips all around Victoria and is sure to get your bones rattlin'! Sexy, slightly narcotic blues grooves, straight from the Yarra Delta. Featuring: Sean McConnell on Vocals, Guitar and Harmonica - and - Ben Gerrard on Drums.
The front man from the raucous Melbourne based Chicago Blues outfit 'Catfish Voodoo' has been playing around Australia for the past 8 Years. His style is based deep in the Blues/ Gospel Acoustic Strummers of the South, with biblical references of Love, Loss and Debauchery. Recorded with Paulie Bignell (The Detonators, Paulie Bignell and the Thornbury Two) in Hailstone Studios (Three Kings), 'Whiskey and the Devil' is a mix of the contemporary and traditional that showcases a different side of a man familiar to Australian blues fans. Julian James will be hitting the streets to a town near you!
