This event has passed and sales are now closed
Moreland & Arbuckle (USA) electrify raw Delta and Mississippi Hill country blues and folk with an unrelenting punk-rock energy washed in hard-hitting Southern soul. Their raw and raucous live shows are legendary.
Guitarist Aaron Moreland describes their music as "gritty blues and roots rock from the heartland." Moreland, along with harmonicist/vocalist Dustin Arbuckle and drummer Kendall Newby, were described by The New York Post as having "a raw juke joint exuberance with a dirt-under-the fingernails garage band attack."
Their songs are expertly executed with musical muscle and fifth-gear urgency. When they perform more traditional blues, they play with the same decisive command. With their seventh album (and first on the renowned Alligator label) Promised Land Or Bust, the band has continued to grow musically and lyrically, creating a signature sound while earning a large and loyal worldwide fan base.
Australian lovers of blues based roots rock finally get their first chance to witness Moreland & Arbuckle live in action in February 2017, with the band performing their own club shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Newcastle as well as headlining the inaugural Holler Roots Music Festival in Melbourne
"Deeply satisfying...gritty soul and blues with garage overtones and fire-and-brimstone vocals" - Living Blues

PLUS SUPPORT - CLAUDE HAY
Hailing from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, award winning Australian solo artist Claude Hay invokes the best of stomping traditional blues, hard rock and booty-shaking funk, all delivered with slide guitar chops to burn and a vocal range to match. Claude is perhaps the world's ultimate Do-It- Yourself musician - initially forging his live sound on the back of looping technology which allowed him to create a band vibe without the band. This approach has seen this fiercely independent artist build an audience for his music globally with the release of three award-winning home-made albums. His fourth album "Roller Coaster" released September 2016 saw him form a band, hence his song writing became unhindered from the constraints of looping which allowed him to finesse his rock-blues, come funk-hillbilly mojo to another level.
