Described as ‘rockin’ blues and a damned good racket’ Blind Creek Rhythm and Blues Review are set to rock the balcony of The Grand Hotel in Healesville on Saturday, 29 April.
A solid five-piece blues band fronted by Richie Langford (vocals, guitar, blues harp), Alan “Mr Fabulous” Gibson (vocals, sax, flute, blues harp, bullhorn, general scallywag activities) and Aaron Burton (vocals, guitar), along with the solid rhythm section of Jono “DeBassist” Zwart (backing vocals, bass) and Paul Spears (drums), means they’re not your average blues line-up.
With all three front men bringing a different lead vocal style, the band is able to include a wide range of rhythm and blues classics, and other lesser-known but just as powerful songs to the show.
Along with original material the band covers songs from artists including Tony Joe White, Tom Waits, Blues Brothers Band, Jonny Winter, Spencer Davis Group, Ray Charles, Buddy Guy, Sam and Dave and more.
After an electric performance at last year’s Healesville Music Festival, and playing to an almost packed house at the Grand Hotel Healesville back in February, the band is looking forward to their return to The Grand balcony.
“We’ll be up there mix of swing, soul and boogie will that’ll get ya feet tappin’ and ya mojo workin’,” Langford said.
“We’re looking forward to it.”
Tickets are available at The Grand or on the door. Visit www.blindcreek.info for more information.
