Get prepared for an uninhibited, old-fashioned soul stomp revival when the fabulous Blues Arcadia take to the stage in The Bunker at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Friday 17 December, supported by super special guest Jen Mize.
Blues Arcadia continue to forge their reputation as dirty-soul heroes by injecting fresh new energy into 21st century rhythm and blues, while channelling the passion and urgency of the old-school soul revival shows, with US magazine Blues Blast claiming that “with them, the future of blues is secure”.
Combining the legendary soul of the Stax and Motown era with the burning heat and power of the Chicago and Memphis blues, Blues Arcadia deliver raucous live shows, which have established them as one of Australia’s most electrifying blues/soul outfits.
Three-time Australian Blues Music Award winners and Australian Roots Music Award nominees, the song-writing partnership of vocalist Alan Boyle and guitarist Chris Harvey is completed by collaborators and partners-in-crime Jeremy Klysz (bass), Paula Girvan (keys) and Casper Hall (drums).
Reviews for their last studio release Carnival Of Fools include 4.5 stars from The Australian Weekend Review, five stars from the Sunday Mail, a number five debut on the AIR Independent Charts and a number one debut on the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Charts.
Their follow-up album is scheduled for release early next year, with the first single and video Follow The Leader dropping on 9 November.
Supporting Blues Arcadia is very special guest Jen Mize – powerhouse vocalist, a celebrated and respected songwriter, and recognised as one of the foremost authorities on Americana and Alt-country music in Australia.
Doors open at 7.30pm for this 18 plus event.
TICKETS: Pre-sale $25 (+booking fee) through Oztix. No door sales.
