Moondogs Gypsy Blues Band play an honestly possessed kind of blues. The guitars are mostly steel and modestly abused; they include a Maton Silvertone lapsteel and 80-year-old ‘Flo’ Nightingale accompanied by a white man with a black voice – Moondog – and blues harps.

Kate Le Jam – cajon and stand-up drum kit like y’all never seen or heard before, keeps an immodestly wild dancing gypsy beat.

Currently touring from Cairns for 2012, with their new CD Dirty Girl turning up the heat to introduce their honestly possessed music nationally.

Live Moondogs Gypsy Blues Band play their originals plus covers by Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Rory Gallagher, JL Hooker, Robert Johnson,

and thats just a lick ’n’ a whiff of what you will get… there’s more…

YOU WILL DIG IT! This Saturday at the Chinderah Tavern.
