Featuring rocking and blistering blues boogie from the legendary Kevin Borich Express. For a generation Borich has been hailed by rock and blues audiences alike as one of the few artists who has successfully straddled the two genres.

Borich came to Oz from NZ with the La De Das in the mid 60's and was there at the historical Sunbury Music Festivals. His career has blossomed, playing with and receiving rave reviews from Renee Geyer, Carlos Santana, Bo Diddley, Ritchie Blackmore, Ron Wood, John Mayall and Taj Mahal.

The graffiti on the walls of the famous Newcastle Star Hotel best sums up Borich’s hot talent - "if licks could kill, Kevin Borich would be doing hard time"

Shaun Kirk is one incredibly talented entertainer. His presence is inspiring, his performance mind blowing. If you haven't seen this young bloke from Melbourne, this is your chance. This is the buzz in the media:
“One of the most explosive solo acts this country has to offer.” – Mixdown Magazine
“One of the finest blues voices this country has ever heard!” – Buzz Magazine
“He’s a powerhouse” – Sydney Morning Herald

Dan Dinnen oozes old school southern blues from Louisiana, where the blues was born. Edgy voice, brilliant guitar, wailing harp, stomping on the 2 and the 4, Dinnen captures the very roots of the Blues. Prepare to be rebooted, refreshed and reinvigorated.

The Governors are Darwin’s class outfit of blues, soul and funk. The line-up is the who’s who of Darwin’s musical elite, including Jillaine Jones on vocals, Alan Murphy on drums, Mick Tothem on guitar, B Flat Matt on sax and Brendan Bassman.

Bernie Bremond’s Lost & Found Band. Bernie is Darwin’s own Rock and Roll legend and mentor. Born and bred in Darwin, Bernie lived the sax, playing the raging Darwin Hotel and Old Workers Club. As a teenager, he travelled down south to hit the big time and became a founding member of Johnny Diesel and the Injectors. We have all heard his fabulous solo in the hit song Crying Shame. His band delivers original blues and grooves from the heart of the Territory.

Introducing the The Hole Tones, Darwin’s answer to the highway men.
