BluesAngels return to Troubadours a few years later to get 'em all bouncing in their seats again. Mark it on yr calendars, Pen people.
BluesAngels travel the good oil of their unique brand of stringband songs, very old and very new, into the refined heart of southern Sydney for some dancin', derangement and devilishly good times. Darn tootin'.
Dreams&Wonder@Troubadour Acoustic Club this Saturday. Themed concert of regulars and occasionals. These nights are a grand eclectic melange of local talent in many styles at many levels. Lotta fun. Whether you sing, play or listen, come along and get involved.
BluesAngels back at Kinky Pub to take the Sunday afternoon cruise crew on a cakewalk through blues, folk, jazz, jug, bluegrass, ragtime, string band & skiffle, and their own originals. 2-530pm Kincumber Hotel we got harmonicas, banjos, bass fiddle, guitars, kazoos, washboard, stompbox, hootin', hollerin', and general caterwaulin', sweet romance and love lost, outsiders and backdoorsers, wowsers and carousers, all comin' to you free from the best music pub on the Coast.
Kincumber Hotel caps off its popular February Friday night singer-songwriter series on the 27th with a derby, a fedora and a blue sequined trilby. The hotel has decided to up the ante on the final Friday and showcase the Coast’s No1 acoustic blues band, BLUESANGELS, led by singer-songwriter Tom Flood (the derby) counting the beat from rhythm man Cec Bucello (the fedora), walkin’ the dog with bassman Smilin’ Frank Russell (the trilby). If BLUESANGEL’s debut album, Devil Don’t Believe, with 12 originals and 3 covers, is just as hard to describe – “If this is blues, it’s turned chartreuse” - their live show is more so, crossing the borders of blues, folk, jazz, alt country, bluegrass, jug, skiffle, 60s Britbeat, Oz roots and more arcane genres. Flood says, “In the days before all these labels, there were just two kinds of minstrels mentioned south of the Mason-Dixon, songsters and gospelers. We’re certainly not the second.” A string band with pretensions, BLUESANGELS will take Kincumber Hotel into another place and time from 6-930pm Friday 27 February. The hats? It’s the blues, brothers & sisters! Serena Coleshill, Kincumber Hotel

“I grew up watching Sonny and Brownie, Taj, R-Bone Walker, Jr. Wells, Albert King and so many more live at the Ashgrove in Hollywood, Ca. My childhood friend and bandmate was Juke Logan (harp) and we played with Gene Vincent among others. Later he would go on to play with Etta, Muddy, JL Hooker, Albert Collins, Ry Cooder, Los Lobos, Lucinda Williams, Dave Alvin, and many many more. He passed recently, but would have loved the original soul you inject into the blues you play.Your music is pure, raw, dusty and rusty dirt fun... and I can tell you guys are havin' too much fun!”
