BANK Coffee House & Wine Bar, VIC
Jaw dropping, crowd pleasing virtuoso with a rich vocal style, Geoff invokes the spirit of the Blues & Soul greats to create his original sound. After many years living in America’s deep South, Geoff has returned with a sack full of new songs a swag of awards and some entertaining tales to tell. Get ready for a performance that is rich in blues history yet irresistibly danceable with heartfelt soul, rockin’ rhythms and contemporary, funky grooves.
Hailing from rural Victoria, Geoff learned to play guitar via a fascination with American blues music. In 1995 he represented Australia at the International Blues Competition in Memphis, USA sand won the coveted Albert King Award for his guitar skills. Subsequent tour schedules have kept him on the move around the globe and earned him something of a cult following amongst fans of blues 'n' roots music. Geoff delivers heartfelt gutsy songs that often defy classification; blues-influenced and very funky, but prone to launching into spontaneous improvisations without losing focus on the song.
