Jim McAllister, Chinderah Tavern, Saturday

Since becoming a full-time professional musician in 1997, Jim McAllister has played in excess of 1,600 solo gigs around south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales. In addition to that staggering body of work, Jim has played in bands for more than 30 years, the last six with Talizman, and has accumulated tens of thousands of hours on stage.

With industry acknowledgement, including a Sunny Award in 1993 for Best Rock Album (with the band Canaan in which Jim played lead guitar), an endorsement from Gibson Guitars, and airplay on dozens of internet radio stations in Australia, Europe and America, Jim’s reputation as the premier soloist in the blues/rock genre in this part of the world is beyond question.

Jim’s guitar style is best described as a mixture of ZZ Top and Gary Moore, with a healthy lashing of Cream mixed in for good measure. His gravelly yet musical voice, which has drawn favourable comparisons to Joe Cocker and Eric Clapton, is perfectly suited to the hard-driving blues/rock that he pumps out tirelessly at every gig.

Jim’s highly developed melodic style enables him to cover the entire spectrum of his genre, from ZZ Top to Pink Floyd, via The Angels, Bad Company, Gary Moore, Cream, Credence, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Bob Seger, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker and dozens of other prominent legendary artists.

See Jim at the Chinderah Tavern on Saturday.
