Blues Arcadia combine the legendary soul of Stax and Motown with the heat and power of the Chicago and Memphis blues to create a unique dirty-soul sound delivered with swagger, style and sensitivity.
Winners of an Australian Blues Music Award and Australian Roots Music Award nominees, the song-writing partnership of vocalist Alan Boyle and guitarist Chris Harvey continues to go from strength to strength. They are joined by collaborators and partners-in-crime Jeremy Klysz (bass), Paula Girvan (keys) and Casper Hall (drums) and their 2019 album Carnival Of Fools captures the sound of the band swinging from the rafters and shaking the foundations of blues and soul music - exactly as they perform live, with raw emotion and absolute conviction. Reviews include 4.5 stars from The Australian Weekend Review, 5 stars from the Sunday Mail, a #5 debut on the AIR Independent Charts and a #1 debut on the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Charts.
On the 9th of Feb, make sure you end the weekend right with your cheekiest rockstars from Gecko! They’ll make you feel angry, they might even trigger some sad times, but most of all they will spread good vibes throughout and make sure you have the most bopping night ever. Gecko will also be playing some never heard before tunes so make sure you catch it before anyone else does. And don’t forget about the heaviest of heavy supports, Silence to Break and Seddon, who will absolutely guarantee a head banging session and a mosh if you’re lucky. So come on down, have a few drinks and enjoy the night before the week disappears!
