JIM JARVIS & ROB THOMPSON
Jim Jarvis is an excellent solo performer well known for his distinctive, haunting blues voice and his finger-picking guitar style. He has a polish and finesse that is characteristic of a fine, traditional and world-class blues musician. Folk and Bluesman Jarvis has been performing since the seventies around Sydney and at many venues in the Blue Mountains since the nineties. He is highly respected among many musicians and after early accolades as a solo performer has been a member of several well-known bands- Last Bus, Rent Party, the Hokum Onsomble, Duck Soup, three left feet with the late Greg Derrig and more recently as a duo with Al Meadows.
Bonniedoon are an Australian indie rock band with a heavy blues influence. The band formed in Sydney’s Blue Mountains in 2011. Bonniedoon satisfy their audience with the powerhouse vocals of Bonnie Coady, the soulfully solid rhythms of guitarist Sheridan Hurst, the electrifying lead guitar lines of Hamish Rynehart, the boot thumping bass notes of Michael George and the tastefully delivered rocking drum beats of Colin “Metronome Man” McIntosh.
The band has released two studio EPs and is currently working on their first studio album. The band has received much attention and acclaim after taking first place in a string of talent-filled band competitions and as a result, have formed a strong audience base that follow their many rocking shows.
“….rich musical blend of East meets West, …begins with a psychedelically dry and drifting desert scale, shifting into a hard-rocking, uplifting chorus with Gillian’s powerful, wailing blues voice leading the way before an expansive percussive interlude segues the piece into a dreamy, ambience…” Shearston and Grilli Entertainment August July 2019. The past few years has seen the band busy touring Australia, Japan, USA, UK and Spain whilst finding themselves quite at home featuring at “Steam Punk” festivals, Halloween celebrations, as much as the usual fare of clubs and pubs.
