Don't miss this celebration of early Country, Blues and Rock'n'Roll from two of the world's greatest exponents of the genre.
The Ben Waters Band have been going since 1988, specialising in playing the music of their heroes Fats Domino, Amos Milburn, Albert Ammons, Huey Piano Smith and Professor Longhair. It's basically a feast of piano-pounding, sax-honking early Blues and rock'n'roll. Ben and the band have played over 6000 shows in over 50 countries and always bring a smile even to the sternest of faces. This will be a celebration of the music they love!
Expect fireworks when the two bands join forces at the end of the show.
David Graham & the Eskimo Brothers
David Graham (Portland, OR) has become known as one of Nashville’s can’t-miss live entertainers over the past decade. His honky tonk trio has honed their stage show and sound from nearly 300 shows per year and thousands of hours in the Music City honky tonks in a variation of high energy ensembles. When not playing their usual residencies in Nashville and Memphis, David has a steady line-up that tours throughout the US. Mark Robertson (Legendary Shack Shakers) carries upright and electric bass duties with Tony DiCello (Whitey Morgan & the 78’s) on drums.
The band’s signature raw and rowdy delivery of American Roots music appeals to a wide audience, and much of it can be attributed to their own vast influences. Every original song has qualities that are essential to a Country melody and content, but played with the attitude that draws a Rock fan to a genre that they would usually not listen to. Too Rock N’ Roll for Country – Too Country for Rock N’ Roll – Having too much fun to care.
