This one day event, in the heart of Bacchus Marsh brings alive the sounds of blues. With an array of local acts as well known blues entertainers the day will be full of fun and festivities.
Wayne is recognised as a talented musician with his unique style and versatility as a performer.
Boogie piano, smoking organ, hot sax, steamy harmonica and quirky guitar, over a layer of irresistible rockin’ roots and rhythm, Hey Gringo take you on a journey to all corners of the roots music world.
Kelly Auty Band
For those who have seen and heard Kelly perform live, the passion and power of her recorded work will come as no surprise. Kelly's work can only be described as honest and heartfelt, earthy and inspiring.
Anna Scionti (pronounced Shon-tee) is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and bottleneck slide player who mixes it up on cigar box guitar, resonator, lap steel and six-string guitar.
The music Scionti makes is her own style steeped in blues, roots and rock. While absorbing influences from her favourite inspirational artists, Scionti walks her own creative path. Driving guitars and honey-soaked, gravel-infused vocals draw you deep in to her world of emotionally charged, electrified rhythmic tunes.

Singing drummer Carl Pannuzzo, guitar master Shannon Bourne, Hammond virtuoso Tim Neal and uber-musical bassist, Zoe Frater curate shows fitting to events and venues, no two shows being the same, but each unforgettable live experiences, from standing ovations at Wangaratta Jazz Festival to crammed inner Melbourne pubs.
Semi-finalists at the 2020 International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, recording at the legendary SUN Studio and a new incredible live album to launch, word keeps spreading about this formidable act.
