MESCALITO BLUES

25/10/2014 9:30 pm

Mescalito Blues @ The Lennox HotelMescalito Blues combines the gritty vocals, swampy blues guitar, rhythmic stomp box and hypnotic harmonica to create a sound much bigger than its parts. .... Fast building a reputation for blazing live shows that resonate with audiences from all walks of life, Mescalito Blues are as comfortable playing intimate shows to blues aficionados in Brisbane as a room full of rambunctious backpackers in Byron--their uncanny ability to seduce crowds with their potent blend of dirty blues knows no boundaries. .... Taking an overseas sabbatical in 2007 to play solo through the U.S. for just under a year, Gavin Doniger bounced around famous locales such as Hollywood and Seattle before soaking up the sights and sounds of Nashville for 3 months. The experience left him invigorated and chomping at the bit to unleash some fresh blues goodness back home. ....

Yolan

556792_601019226616824_496774026_nMany artists struggle to establish their musical identity, laboriously trying on different musical styles like a piece of clothing, looking to find what fits. But there are others that emerge fully formed, in full command of their craft, their identity and their music. Yolan fits firmly in the latter category. Her style and live performances are a captivating and moving experience that heralds the arrival of a gifted and significant new talent, one whose music feels familiar in the best possible way, while striking out on its own territory.

Yolan is a passionate storyteller who has the ability to make any song her own. Not ever wanting to be labeled as fitting into a particular genre, Yolan finds her style in everything from 60’s rock n roll, to heartfelt folk ballads, to soul, funk and blues. Her aim is to take the audience on a joyful musical journey.

Over the past two years Yolan has been performing solo, however the New Year has brought a fuller sound with the addition of Jimmy Dobbs, who is an accomplished musician, having played in a variety of bands and as a soloist for many years, and Wayne Laidlaw, our talented percussionist who adds his tonal qualities with the conga’s and bongo’s. Steve Tester, our bass player comes on board if we need to add a different element to our performance. Individually we each bring something unique to our sound, but together we create a vibe that has been very well received in the local area, playing venues like the ‘Shaw bay’, ‘The Eltham’, ‘The Federal’ ,‘The Slipway’, and ‘Lennox’ hotels on a regular basis. We look forward to branching out and continuing our journey in Byron and surrounding areas.
