Austin Busch brings his love of blues, soul and song together with a diverse vocal range and creates a musical journey which is unique. Inspired by old time Blues and Soul he delivers a performance which can jump from a smooth soulfulness to a raspy punch.
Spending the last few years travelling throughout the country and abroad with his band Austin has become a regular on the touring circuit playing at festivals and earning supports for artists such as Bob Brozman (USA), James Hunter (U.K).
Now as he and the band take a well earned break from the extensive touring and spend time writing material for a new cd Austin has stripped back his songs, crafted them into solo format and taken them on the road on his own. This is where it all grew from for Austin and is quite fitting to have come full circle for the next stage of his story.

Ladies and gentlemen, step aside and make way for the good ole days. Yes, the 60’s and 70’s are alive and well with the 42nd Anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival with award winning cover band Late For Woodstock.
These relics of rock’s greatest era originally formed in 1998 and were voted Most Popular Live Band at the 2001 Entertainer of the Year Awards. And for good reason – the four-piece rock outfit live, eat and breathe the 60’s and 70’s, while their renditions of rock’s greatest classics are remarkably similar to the originals.
To celebrate the 42nd Anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival in 1969, Late for Woodstock will play the very best of CCR, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Stones, Neil Young, Santana, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, The Doobie Brothers and many more. Late For Woodstock cover the entire spectrum without skipping a beat.
The band members, who all grew up in the 60’s and “turned on” in the 70’s, include Bourbon Street lead singer Col Meredith, Paul Martin on guitar, Grant Byrne on bass, and drummer Tony Bell.
The unyielding demand for authentic classic rock keeps these reckless lads on the road. Seems those 60’s and 70’s just won’t leave ‘em alone.
