It’s been more than four decades since drummer/producer Bobby Colomby and friends assembled the first group to successfully blend rock and jazz into a genre-crossing sound and style. So successfully in fact, that the band’s second album, Blood, Sweat & Tears, topped the Billboard charts for many weeks and beat out the Beatles’ Abbey Road for the prestigious Album of the Year Grammy award. That album produced three major hit singles: “You Made me so Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” and “And When I Die.”

But now Colomby is looking for much more as he develops Blood Sweat & Tears into a contemporary voice, one that reaches beyond a single, nostalgic audience.

“I no longer want to target just one generation. That would be a mistake. With this updated version, I want this band to gain recognition with a wider audience. I want people of all ages to experience what this music has to offer.

Will Blood, Sweat & Tears have any of the original members?

“Not a chance,” says Colomby. The last member to leave the band from the first album in 1977. I think of this band like baseball’s Yankees. “When you’re at a Yankee game you’re not going to see Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle or Lou Gehrig. What you do come to expect is a team of top-notch players upholding a tradition of winning. That’s the Yankee legacy. It what people expect from BS&T as well… brilliant musicians, singers, songs and arrangements.

Towards that end, Blood, Sweat & Tears will perform their hits with spirit and enthusiasm, as if it was their first performance of those songs. The band will also introduce some new elements into every performance, including a segment devoted to “Songs We Wish We Had Recorded,” done in classic B,S & T style.

Bobby Colomby’s enthusiastic comments underscore his excitement about the future. The arrival of this latest version of Blood, Sweat & Tears is the next chapter in a musical tale that stretches from the creativity and turbulence of the late ‘60s to the swiftly changing world of the 21st Century. The next invigorating phase in the continuing adventures of B, S & T is about to begin.

Aussie rock n blues are undeniably world class. We’ve brought together not only some of the best WA blues gods, but are thrilled to announce our interstate bands; VIC’s international legends DALLAS FRASCA, who will be playing music from their recent Top 10 album ‘Love Army’, and lively young road-tripping upstarts THE SWAMP STOMPERS from NSW.

We are ecstatic to have Aria award winning blues legend DAVE HOLE, as well as funk-blues-rock icons VDELLI, fresh from their epic adventures in Europe. OLD BLOOD play blues with the confidence, skill and swagger of musicians twice their age, with the vigour and passion of the youths that they are. Local Westralian TOBY oozes charisma, and will slay you with her vocal chords. If you haven’t got your boogie on yet, watch out for rock n roll dance party explosion THE SOUTHERN RIVER BAND.

As if that wasn’t enough, all-girl, sax-infused grunge-blues quartet The Tommyhawks will blow your minds with their driving catchy bouncy tunes. And to top it all off, we have the mesmerising Lightning Jack and world-infused party band The Barefeet Sojourns kicking off the festivities.

Americana. It's music that draws from America's roots, from country, folk, bluegrass, R&B, the blues ... But to Mark Lizotte, the musician known and loved as Diesel, Americana is the very core of his being. It's the music of his childhood and, as an artist born in America and raised in Australia, a link back to the land he'd left behind.

To coincide with the release of Americana, Diesel will be embarking on a national Australian tour from September 2016. He'll be playing in solo mode, giving fans the opportunity to see a more intimate and stripped back performance that features the distinct guitar playing and powerhouse vocals that Diesel has become renowned for. The set will feature tracks from Americana as well as singles and other gems spanning his 15-album career.

Wendy Matthews

As an artist Wendy Matthews has an expressive voice that never fails to move those who hear it. Her music is an unhurried journey of clean melodies, infectious energy and simple grace, In an age where uber-production techniques are thought to be hip and cynicism an attribute, Wendy has proven that commitment to beauty is still not only valid but applauded by the public ear.

This is exemplified by the reality that Wendy’s music is now in more than 1 million homes in Australia and all her albums to date have multi-platinum status.

Wendy has an immense talent and capacity to capture and define a diverse range of styles in her music. She takes songs from every genre and makes them her own; from jazz to blues, from rock to gospel, from soul to outright infectious pop and then, of course, there are the beautiful ballads.

Wendy is adept at reaching both frenetic youth and mature audiences alike, if older ears are captured by her soul and unfazed class, a more cynical youth is convinced by her disarming ease of delivery, wooed by a voice of stunning emotive capacity yet void of sentimentality.
