Event description

Our next Double Shot of Blues session features two rising stars of the national blues scene.

Mitch King
, a celebrated musician hailing from Queensland, Australia, embarked on his musical journey as a busker in Mount Tamborine. Since then, he has achieved remarkable milestones, including sold-out headline shows in Australia, international gigs, and providing support to notable artists such as America, the band, Roger Hodgson of Supertramp, and Tones and I.

His music has graced the stages of renowned festivals like Blues on Broadbeach, St.Kilda Festival, Gympie Muster, and Tamworth Country Music Festival to name a few.

Mitch's music has also topped the Blues Charts, and notably, his single "Coming Back" gained widespread recognition when it was featured at the season opener of the Green Bay Packers, US Football Team, in 2014.

With an impressive 60 million global streams to his name, Mitch King is renowned for his electrifying live performances, skillfully blending vocals, guitar, harmonica, tambourine, and kick drum to create his truly distinctive fusion of Southern blues and Australian folk and roots music.

Following his recent MEMOIRS OF LOVE & WAR TOUR across Australia in 2023 to commemorate the long-awaited releases of two full-length albums “LOVE & WAR” and “MEMOIRS OF A TRAVELLING MIND”, fellow folk/bluesman Ben Jansz will complete this awesome double bill.

Both albums will be released from MARCH on all online streaming platforms and be available for purchase at his shows on Vinyl, CD, and Download, along with other merchandise.  This tour will also showcase unreleased/not yet recorded music from a new album in the works “INTEGRATE/INTERROGATE” which can only be heard at these shows on his Australian Tour.

He invites you to open your hearts, bodies, and minds, into a safe space of emotional vulnerability, sharing stories of heartbreak, empowered healing experiences, and the process of integrating the lessons of life through the creation/sharing of art and music.

As a special bonus performance, the show will open with emerging local bluesmith Candice Alisha thanks to the Garage 2 Gig Emerging Artist Program supported by City of Port Phillip's Cultural Development Fund.
