This month, The BBS presents: Glenn Cardier and the Sideshow + The Continental Blues Party + Jeremy Edwards. Don't miss this!
Glenn Cardier and the Sideshow featuring Rex Goh
Glenn Cardier and the Sideshow were the 'buzz' band at the Byron Bay Bluesfest last year. The two incendiary Bluesfest sets confirmed the critical acclaim Cardier has attracted since forming his powerhouse Sideshow, featuring legendary guitarist Rex Goh, in 2009.
'One of the delights of the festival...! (Courier Mail)
And now, Cardier and the Sideshow are bringing it back to the Basement.
'I've been playing the Basement since the 70's', Cardier says. 'We launched our last CD Stranger Than Fiction there. It's always a special event. It's iconic.'
The Continental Blues Party
"Continental" Robert Susz (ex Dynamic Hepnotics & The Mighty Reapers -singer, harmonica player & songwriter) has assembled his latest soul/blues/downhome funk combo "The Continental Blues Party". Performing a mix of Continental Robert's compositions (including his national SMASH HIT from the 80's "Soul Kind Of Feeling") & treasures form the vaults by artists like Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, James Brown, Joe Simon, Junior Wells to name a few, they have been turning on audiences with their electrifying, soul charged, R'N'B workouts since their formation in 2007.

"Continental" Robert Susz - lead vocals & harmonica
Illya "The Cossack" Szwec - guitar
