Are 3/4pce blues/soul outfit consisting of Jesse Valach (Guitar/Vocals), Nick Ohlson (Bass), Anthony Murray (Drums) and occasionally a Hammond player is sourced. The band formed around 3yrs ago after a small blues jam session at an RSL in Elwood, Vic. Since that time they have performed at some of Melbourne's' top venues including The Vineyard-St. Kilda, The Nighthawke-Mentone, and The Cornish Arms Hotel-Brunswick. Although relatively new to the blues community they have already shared the stage (and even alongside) some of Australia's biggest blues names including Andrea Marr, Jimi Hocking, Ray Beadle, and Geoff Achison. A beloved selection of covers and fiery guitar with soulful/reggae/funk infused originals make this outfit a major player in the very near future.
