Kingscliff Beach Hotel tonight

Australian blues legend Mick Hadley has joined the Midnight Blues Band as lead singer. Mick and the boys have a long history together and his move to the Gold Coast now gives Mick the opportunity to play and sing with his old backing band.

The Midnight Blues Band can best be described as a melting pot of Mississippi Delta blues and Chicago blues, reminiscent of the days of Freddie King, Buddy Guy and Tony Joe White with the more contemporary music of Gary Moore and Eric Clapton.

The Midnight Blues Band is made up of some of the Gold Coast’s most experienced musicians, who came through the ranks of some of the leading Gold Coast and Brisbane blues bands.

Starting out as the backing band for some of Brisbane’s leading blues singers, including legendary recording artist and blues legend Will Scarlett, the Midnight Blues Band has forged its own sound featuring the vocals of guitarist Dean Fuller.

Recently the band recorded eight tracks that will be included on their debut album to be released soon.

Get yourself some blues at the Kingscliff Beach Hotel on Friday.
