The Ivan & Ethan Duo
The Ethan and Ivan Duo combines the talents of two of Victoria’s most soulful, expressive musicians. Ivan Fisher’s rich, emotional vocal sound is inspired by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Etta James, Ray Charles, and other legends, ultimately combining their influence into a unique, soulful sound.
Hailing from central Victoria, guitarist/singer songwriter Bill Barber is at the forefront of a new generation of Australian Blues. Bill took an interest in Blues at a young age and by 14 was making the rounds, performing in Melbourne venues alongside Australia's most respected Blues artists.
The Anthea Jewels Band
The Anthea Jewels Blues Band perform home grown original and traditional blues with soaring vocals for soul-stirring renditions of the Delta and blues music styles from New Orleans, Mississippi and Chicago.
Contrary to what the name suggests, Doc Halibut are actually a five piece band (two guitars, hammond, bass and drums), rather than your local practising G.P. The band’s music sits somewhere between Rhythm and Blues and Country/Rock; where the styles of Ry Cooder may meet The Band or perhaps the Stones and Van Morrison. Doc Halibut themselves have ironically described their sound as “regressive rock”, but however it may be categorized, it’s music and it gets the toes tapping.
