WE'RE BACK - AND BACK AT ROSEVILLE!
EASTERN LOUNGE RETURNS
Well, the confusion caused by COVID-19 continues, but in good news for Northside music fans, Eastern Lounge has been thrown a lifeline for the remainder of 2020. Our dear friends at The Roseville Club have invited us back for three shows to close out this crazy year - September, October and November.
We kick off on FRIDAY 11 SEPTEMBER with a BLUES SPECTACULAR starring two Australian Legends of the genre - Jesse Redwing and PJ O'Brien.
BLUES SPECTACULAR - THE JESSE REDWING BLUES BAND
"With sprawling solos, Blues Harp galore and vocals that scream Black Keys, Jesse Redwing is helping the Blues to thrive across our nation."

A Blues revival looks well-and-truly ready to kick off in Australia and Jesse Redwing might just be the man to lead the congregation. A young Bluesman with serious chops, Jesse says he was inspired by Eric Burdon and The Animals, Peter Green, CREAM, The Rolling Stones and the other British Blues acts of the 1960s. “They appreciated the original black American Bluesmen when no one else in their own country did and in doing so, they opened up this amazing culture for white audiences around the world”, says Jesse.
Jesse was once told by a street hawker in San Francisco that he must be John Lee Hooker reincarnate. This vendor confided in Jesse: “A lot of fellas can play the guitar and quite a few can sing, but how many really feel it deep down in the well like you?” And people who count have started to take notice.
Just last year, Jesse was signed to a worldwide publishing deal with Mushroom Music and his original song ‘Crawlin Up The Walls’ was featured in the hit Netflix series ‘Shooter’. He also played huge shows to over 10,000 people at venues like Hope Estate with Aussie Rock legends Cold Chisel.
BLUES SPECTACULAR - THE PJ O'BRIEN BAND
"One of the brightest talents to emerge on the Aussie Blues scene in a long while….an international Blues star on the rise."
- Al Hensley, Rhythms Magazine AU
PJ O’Brien knows how to get a Blues party started. His blistering fretwork has been turning heads from Perth to Memphis, Chicago, Austin, London, Singapore and back again.
Driven by PJ’s fat and funky guitar and accompanied by his smooth, soul-filled vocals, The PJ O'Brien Band is receiving widespread acclaim. PJ's Blues exude both a retro and modern feel, delivering award-winning songwriting and spine-tingling dynamics.
PJ's most recent album, Jefferson Blues debuted at No. 1 on the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Chart and held the top place for two months.
