Event description

The Bamford Blues Band hosts Canberra Blues Society February Jam.

The Bamford Blues Band has a line up that is rare these days, comprising a father and three of his sons along with drummer Gavin Kelly and sax/harp player James Hoogstad who we say are ‘brothers from another mother’ because they have been a part of this show for many years.

The Bamford Blues Band have played and been very well received at many festivals and venues over the years. We love playing the Blues and the feeling it gives you, especially when it is family you are making the music with. There is not much better.

We all tour and play in various bands but enjoy it so much when we can find the time & the opportunities to get together and make blues music as a family.

Rick can remember watching his boys grow into professional entertainer/musicians as the years went by and can be very proud of how it has all worked out and how far they have come in their careers.

Luke has played the blues since he was in primary school and carves it up in his dynamic solos and aggressive flamboyant guitar playing and vocals.

Brett (BJ) is a proficient and talented bass guitarist / lead vocalist who is second to none. He knows just what feel/groove is needed for each tune.

Dave (Moonman), Rick's son-in-law, has played guitar since childhood and sure knows his way around the fretboard. His lead vocals leave you wanting more.

Gavin’s solid drumming skills and vocal harmonies are well known and admired by the music fraternity, both locally and broadly. He can give you the exact feel for any tune you throw at him. A true “pot’s n pan’s” legend.

Rick has played professionally all his life and still knocks 'em dead with his gravel vocals, raunchy lead guitar and haunting slide work.

James (Hoogie) Hoogstad is a well-respected musician that plays in several top shelf bands. He has played sax and harp with the Bamford Band for years now and is the band's “icing on the cake” so to speak.

The host band will be followed by some of the finest musicians in the Canberra region jamming together for a great afternoon of live Blues music.
