You’ll see all four acts!
The McNaMarr Project
The McNaMarr Project "The Sound Of Soulful Blues" John McNamara and Andrea Marr have both carved a niche for themselves on the international blues and soul scene over many years. In 2017 and 2018 both artist have hit #1 on Blues, Soul and R& B charts here in Australia and in the US with their respective latest albums. These two powerhouse voices combine to bring you the true sound of Soulful Blues evoking the sounds of Stax and Motown with great original material.
It would be a generalisation to group 23 year old Alister Turrill with other young roots players. His playing style blends a true form of blues with complex song writing seldom seen in someone so young.
The Montgomery Brothers
Now new residents of Melbourne, The Montgomery Brothers are set to deliver their towering and important to the universe sound to the music capital of Australia. Having been brought up in very musical and cultural families, Warrigo Tyrrell (Aboriginal/Maori), Maru Elias Nitor-Zammataro (Chilean/Sicilian) and Ryo Montgomery (Japanese/Scottish) share a very diverse music vocabulary. Thanks to equitable parenting The Montgomery Brothers, barely in their 20’s have souls the same age as your grandparents.
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.
