Festival of Blues Sideshow, Mullum Civic Hall, tonight

Barbara Blue heads up a great lineup of artists in the Queensland Festival of Blues sideshow. Barbara hails from Memphis, Tennessee, where she is the reigning Queen of Beale St, an honour earned after 15 years solid playing her residency at the famous Silky O’Sullivans.

Touring Australia to promote her tenth album release, she will be backed by Brisbane’s King of Blues, Mojo Webb and his band. Mojo’s recent album release The Cat has earned him national attention and he backs this with a superb live performance.

Supporting Barbara is Continental Robert de Susz performing with the Morningside Fats Band. Robert’s vocals gave the distinctive sound of the chart-topping Dynamic Hypnotics as well as their successors the Mighty Reapers. Robert is backed by jump blues exponents Morningside Fats for this tour.

Kicking off proceedings are the Mojo Bluesmen. Dirty, raw and as grungy as blues can get, these guys have an awesome live show. Their latest release Morphine and Mayhem, pretty much the autobiography of the band’s last year, will be showcased on the night.

Mullum Civic Hall on Friday. Tix: Pre $20 (+bf) / $25 Door. www.oztix.com.au Doors 7.30pm / Show 8pm
