Frequently described as a must-see artist for true blues lovers, Kerry B Ryan along with his band The Blues Experience featuring Ian Ironside on drums and Paul O’Neil on bass, bring a wealth of experience to the stage, having performed live for over 30 years. He has also written, arranged and recorded his own original blues music, which has received airplay and acclaim across Australia and the USA.
Kerry draws his inspiration from a wide range of influences such as Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Freddie King and Robert Johnson, to name a few. He always gives his audiences a stellar performance, playing from the heart and always keeping an open mind to allow the music to guide him. His guitar solos are an exciting thing to witness.
If you love truly authentic, from-the-heart blues music, don’t miss Kerry B Ryan.
Empire Blues is an established, dynamic Blues Power trio whose primary influences come from the British Blues invasion of the 1960s. Initially the band took its material from this period, but over time it has moved to performing more original material in the belief that for Blues music to evolve, you cant keep just repeating the past. Formed in 2005 the band features prominent Western Australian Blues musicians: Andrew McIlroy (guitar/vocal) Alan Dawson (bass guitar/vocal) Frank Shinall (drums)
All three musicians have been stalwarts of the Perth music scene for many years. High-energy blues is very much the staple of the band, which has a well-earned reputation for lifting the roof off many a blues venue. The band also brings together more traditional elements to many of its songs through the use of Dobro-slide guitar, fretless bass and brushes on the drums for an acoustic (not roots) blues feel. Together with great original tracks from their two full length CD releases, Empire Blues (self Titled) & Blue Diamonds, the band also covers material from, John Mayall, Eric Clapton/Cream, The Rolling Stones, Robin Trower, The Animals and many other great British blues artists.
Andrew brings his bluesified mix of originals and well-known gems via his Alabama made, cypress tree root, double neck lap-slide called the ‘Lucky 13’. From years of playing national festival circuits, playing in the US and collecting many awards along the way, Andrew keeps stretching the boundaries of blues and folk while giving audiences a relaxed good time.
