Blackstone Boogie with Belle Hendrik - Hosting BASEQ Jam April 14
Recognized as one of the region's most outstanding blues singers Belle Hendrik has teamed up with Gold Coast band Blackstone Boogie and the result is a romping trip down the blues highway. Belle who has released 3 CD's, has recently returned from living in the UK, wowed audiences at the iconic Mitchell Creek Rock and Blues Fest, and now brings her unique style to the rocking blues of Blackstone Boogie. The band features Mark Watto on Guitar (The Rectifiers, Devils Kiosk), Ben Silver (Left Lane Blues) on Drums, John Hill (Milan Hendrik EXP, Soul Shakers) on keys/hammond and Jon Lindsay on bass, vocals and guitar (Left Lane Blues, Rusty Brothers). With Blackstone Boogie Hendrik embraces her rough edge beautifully creating an authentic ballsy sound. How does one sound so tough and vulnerable at the same time? This band brings home the Blues, adding a touch of soul and creating one hell of an electric blues party.
Milan Hendrik EXP Release New CD - Applegate Drive
Club Mullum CD Launch
Milan Hendrik EXP
Applegate Drive is the new release from Millan Hendrik Exp. It’s an album that dominates the listener’s attention with a diverse, terrifically performed palette of songs and emotions – a razor sharp collection that is mostly raw and bluesy but also gives a nod to honky tonk with a playful rhinestone twang. The band features powerhouse performer Belle Hendrik who has mastered the illusive art of bringing home the Blues with a thud, a howl and a whisper – what a voice!
