The Music

The 2016 Music Festival line-up includes Greg Dodd and The Hoodoo Men, a Melbourne based electric blues 4 piece combo. Last Razoo, who mostly enjoy playing traditional acoustic blues will also be here, as well as John-Luke Shelley with his band High Speed Steel, their combination of talented youth, substantial experience and musical craftsmanship makes the band both original and stunning in it's 'Modern Blues' style sound. Another truly a great round-up of Blues talent put together by us. An awesome day of food, drink and blues to enjoy!
