Day 129 ‘Press Blog’
Bit willing, granted. Also, I’m a little stumped for ammunition 🙂
Still, I guess there are no rules as to what I put here, so here’s the MBAS press for next week’s show. My guitar and I are getting along really nicely at the moment, the best we’ve spoken to each other in a long time 🙂 . It’ll be good to be out amongst the living next Tuesday and test the new show. If you can get on down, please do so. I’m in the mood for a good night, so bring your best happy self and I will do the same. 🙂
Thanks for listening
John Durr is with Stevie Paige.
MBAS ‘HOUSE OF BLUES’ @ FLEMINGTON BOWLS CLUB
Tuesday 14th MAY 2019 • FREE ENTRY, all welcome!
8pm: Feature act: STEVIE PAIGE
9pm – 11pm: Blues Jam (Jammers to register by 8:30pm)
6:30pm: Doors & Kitchen open for meals
STEVIE PAIGE has a long music industry career which is anything but typical, having taken her from the prestigious stage of the Melbourne Concert Hall as a classical guitarist, to the famous Beale Street in Memphis as a Blues singer! A graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts and with a postgraduate offer to study at London’s Royal College of Music, the future seemed all but set. An unexpected encounter with a campus Blues band one night derailed this classical musician, and almost overnight the playing of concertos with orchestras was traded for a steel string guitar and a stomp box.
With ten national and international nods for her album ‘Welcome to the Big Time,’ this Chain and Vic/Tas award winner is widely regarded as an exceptional talent with one the best voices you will hear anywhere in the world. Critics have described Stevie’s voice as “superb” and “amazing”. Couple this with reviews of “great guitar” and “impressive songs,” Stevie is a world-class act not to be missed.
“Fantastic voice, beautiful music, great original material.” – International Blues Challenge Memphis USA
“Paige has a superb and powerful voice…” – Steve Jones, Blues Blast Magazine USA
“Immensely talented… natural Soul-Blues resembling classic Hi and Stax sounds of Memphis… has complete mastery over her Les Paul Gibson.” – Al Hensley, Rhythms Magazine AUS
