8:00pm – 9:00pm – SUGAR BOWL HOKUM 9:30pm – 11:00pm – MILENA BARRETT & WOLF MAIL
ROSEVILLE – 10 AUGUST 2018
Our next show is on Friday August 10 2018, when we present the incredible combination of Australian Blues & Soul Queen Milena Barrett performing with Canadian Guitar Legend, Wolf Mail, plus Sugar Bowl Hokum opening the show with their pre-Rock ‘n’ Roll era Blues classics.
MILENA BARRETT & WOLF MAIL
Having just completed a pre-World Cup tour of Russia together, internationally acclaimed, award-winning Canadian Guitarist Wolf Mail and Australia's own Queen of Soul & Blues, Milena Barrett team up again in Australia... and Eastern Lounge has snared one of their gigs!
Milena is an authentic Blues / Soul / Rock phenomenon, described by many as “… the wild child of Etta James and Steve Marriot”. Wolf has a global presence alongside Dan Auerbach, Derek Trucks and Gary Clark Jr., constantly touring the world, playing sell-out shows. As a six-piece band at Eastern Lounge, the pair will perform original material as well as songs made famous by the likes of Aretha Franklin, The Faces, Free, Hendrix and more.
SUGAR BOWL HOKUM
Rewinding the musical clock to a time when cocaine and reefer were legal, cultural dynamism was at a peak, modern womanhood was redefined and the first sexual revolution was under way, Sugar Bowl Hokum scours the crackly grooves of old 78’s to find the best forgotten Blues gems of the pre-Rock ‘n’ Roll era.
They perform the music of feisty trail blazers like Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Barrel House Annie, Rosetta Howard and Ma Rainey among others.
