Music / Blues & Roots
Scaled arba final cmyk

The blues exists in Adelaide in all of its glorious variations. The Adelaide Roots and Blues Association is proud to present 4 of Adelaide’s finest acts.

Friday 17th February, Lazy Eye and J.J Fields.
Lazy Eye are a multi-award winning Hammond organ trio featuring singer songwriter Evan Whetter on organ and harmonica, Erica Graf on guitar and Mario Marino on drums.
Think soul drenched blues and B.B. King sharing a scotch with Booker T at the crossroads after midnight!
Supported by legendary Adelaide guitarist, the great J.J Fields (Sav).

Friday 17th March, Steve Brown Band and Jesse Deane-Freeman.
The Voice and The Band, an unbeatable combination! Steve Brown has a voice that sounds like a pint of Guinness and the Steve Brown Band is an award-winning line-up that features Dave Rhodes (guitar), Denis Surman (bass), Peter Martin (keyboards), Jeff Algra (drums). You'll not hear better Blues and Roots music in the 'Deep South'!
Supported by delta blues master Jesse Deane-Freeman.
