Ben Waters, the British piano king of boogie woogie, is returning to Australia in March to bring his own unique brand of barnstorming rock and blues, accompanied by his amazing band, including fellow UK virtuosos Ian Jennings on bass and Clive Ashley on saxophone, and local legends Ashley Davies on drums and Sweet Felicia on bass and vocals.

Touted by Jools Holland as being one of his all-time favourite pianists, Waters is renowned for rocking so hard, he turns every venue he plays at into a Kansas City barrel house. In his own inimitable style, he performs an eclectic mix from his heroes Fats Domino, Huey "Piano" Smith, Albert Ammons, Ian Stewart, Jerry Lee Lewis, Amos Milburn and Chuck Berry as well as his own foot stomping material, and he is promising Australian audiences all of this.
