LLOYD SPIEGEL TRIO
Sat 28 Oct @ 7:00 pm
Melbourne Blues artist Lloyd Spiegel has been touring the globe for 30 of his 40 years.
The 14 time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most interesting stories in music, having grown up on stage learning from, & touring with the founding fathers of modern Blues.
The current show features the incredibly talented Lisa Baird on Trombone and long-time collaborator Tim Burnham on drums. Combined with Spiegel’s guitar wizardry, powerful vocal performance & knack for storytelling, this trio with a twist delivers a truly unique entertainment experience that reinvents the blues & dispels the cliches associated with it.
This tour celebrates the release of ‘Bakehouse Dozen’. Recorded live with no overdubs at Melbourne’s iconic Bakehouse studios, the album offers reimagined versions of songs from Spiegel’s last 3 multi-award winning recordings & showcases the raw energy & depth of the trio, signalling what’s to come.
“A revelation, the consummate performer, an Oz Blues & Roots icon.” – Rolling Stone
“A guitarist almost without peer, Spiegel deconstructs how the blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door” – Australian Guitar Player Magazine
“Spiegel is ALL presence, authority, rhythm and drive. He epitomises control, soul and passion with white hot ferocity and blazing instrumental mastery dangerous enough to spark a destructive inferno.”- The Age, Melbourne
