Kerry B Ryan is a blues guitarist, originally from QLD but now living in WA. He has played many gigs over the years that have helped refine what he does and launches his debut CD - a six-track EP called Blues For My Sweety - at the Perth Blues Club on Tuesday 11 March. The EP will be performed in its entirety with his new band Hot Spot Blues
Kerry has played for many years, which has helped refine what he does. Now, after a long break from the music scene, he has returned to the fold playing original music as well covers from the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy, B.B.King, Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters.
With these many influences, it's probably best to discover Kerry for yourself as he works through his set.
When Kerry plays, he holds nothing back. He loves to play live, to share the music with anyone that will listen young and old.
Kerry B Ryan will be supported by The Slide Machine (8pm) and One Thousand Years (10pm).
Every now and then, when the planets align and all the members are in the same place at the same, something special happens. Thar something special is happening on Tuesday 18 March.
A band of veteran players, headed by Rick Steele, The Hot Biscuit Band manages to cultivate a definitive Australian imagery with with a mix of blues and laid-back country rock, rather than merely reproducing American roots music.
The band took its name from the legendary "King Biscuit Time" radio show, which brought music to generations of black Americans throughout the Mississippi Delta and beyond, spawning the career of BB King, among others, and often cited as the birthplace of rock'n'roll.
In a similar vein, the Hot Biscuit Band has fostered the talents of many fledgling performers over the years, but retained the integral unit that made the band popular in Australia and NZ.
The 2014 reunion band features Rick Steele with Richie Pavledis and Marc Gordon.
The Hot Biscuit Band will be supported by Gospel According to John (8pm) and Wayne Green's Ragged Company (10pm).
