We took the folk of Sydney out on a couple of dates over the weekend and showed them a really good time.

Happy Hump Day everyone!
It's Wednesday night here at BBRHQ in downtown Sydney and we have been recovering from a stupendously big weekend of music and frivolity.
Saturday Feb 8 we had a HARMONICA GRUDGE MATCH at the Town Hall Hotel in Newtown with our good mate Jimi Beavis and his band. It was an uber fun night of Trad Blues, Dirty Blues, Swampy Blues and HARMONICA BLOOZE! We met a lot of new and current fans, which is always a buzz!

The following night we hit Frankie's Pizza By The Slice and had the honours of kicking off the night with a BANG! We had a couple of surprise appearances from local Burlesque performer’s Simona Lisa, who performed during our version of "Hoochie Coochie Man", and Casey Lynn, who worked her thang during our version of R.L Burnsides "Going Down South".

After us was Frank Sultana and The Sinister Kids. It was the first time we had played with them and the first time seeing them live for me. It was a real treat. As Karl put it so eloquently, "They've got everything man. A Buxom, Bubbly Girl, A stoner Girl, A Hipster, A Pretty Boy, A New Guy and an Old Bloke Steering the Ship." They really are a motley crew who are making some kick ass swampy Blues Music!

Topping off the Night were Brother and Sister Heavy Swamp Rock Duo, Barefoot Alley. We played with them last year at Frankie's and we were thrilled to share the stage again. Hayden really has his shit together managing Guitar, Loops, Vox and Keys whilst Sophie lays the smack down on some Heavy, Groovin' Rock beats.
Go and like these cats too! https://www.facebook.com/barefootalleyaus
