Event description

BLUES ROULETTE DOUBLES DOWN with Jimi Hocking, Frank Sultana & special guest James Southwell.

Lockdowns and venue restrictions didn’t stop Blues Roulette from delivering their brand of spontaneous performances by Australia’s finest Blues artists.

Through 2020, the Melbourne based rhythm section released live EP’s with Frank Sultana and Jimi Hocking that ranked highly on the Australian Blues and Roots Playlist Chart.

With 2020 now behind us, both Sultana and Hocking will be joining Blues Roulette for an interstate tour to celebrate both releases. And James Southwell will be joining them for their Canberra show.

Jimi Hocking, aka ‘Jimi the human’ has a strong musical pedigree. Adept on
Electric and acoustic guitar …also mandolin, Jimi has forged a unique
musical path since the early 1980’s. He has been a member of The
Screaming Jets since 1993 and even did a stint with the Angels, and for
many years has performed in his electric blues trio - Jimi Hocking's
Blues Machine, picking up a swag of awards along the way, including
2005’s IBC award in Memphis USA. Jimi’s shows are ripe with showmanship
and his quirky sense of fun… not to mention over the top and behind the
head guitar and mandolin playing.

Frank Sultana has been writing, recording and performing his original brand
of blues since his 2011 debut album, ‘Blues from the Lost Motel’. Since
then, he has steadily worked his way onto the East Coast Blues scene,
treading a well worn path between Melbourne and Brisbane.
He is a storyteller in the traditional sense, inspired by the greats like Ray
Charles, Bob Dylan, and Mississippi greats Skip James and Son House to
name but a few. Franks songs are in one breath sad, dark, joyous and
hopeful, awash with vintage guitar tones, he has a truly unique and raw
soulful voice that bleeds with the experiences of the characters he
sings about.

James Southwell commands the stage like few others, with powering riffs and
vocals that bite. James and his incredible band are truly world class and would not be out of place on any stage anywhere. His music comes from a deep love of the blues with heavy inspirational funk and rock & roll influences.

This show promises to give even the most devoted fans of these artists a unique, one night only performance.
