Newport Blues Roulette
No charts, no rehearsal, no safety net… just the blues!
Blues Roulette presents The Kings and Queens Tour, featuring NSW Blues Royalty Cass Eager, PJ O’Brien, Christina Crofts and Frank Sultana. These guest artists will perform together with the Blues Roulette house band in three exclusive Victorian shows:
18 January: The Spotted Mallard, Brunswick
19 January: The Ballarat Beer Festival, Ballarat

Blues Roulette has become a Melbourne Blues Institution. After three years at The Catfish, it has established itself as your only call Wednesday night blues hang. The house band, anchored by Melbourne bass player Ben Wicks, is kept on their toes by a new guest each and every week. No charts, no rehearsal, no safety net… just the blues! Former guests have included more than 50 Australian and International blues artists, including Lloyd Spiegel, Geoff Achison, Jimi Hocking, Charlie A’Court and Irish Mythen.
The Blues Roulette House band for this tour will feature Ben Wicks on Bass, Chad Blaster on drums and Ollie Rolfe on hammond.
