LIVE HOUSE BLUES BAND FOR MISS PEACHES – EVERY THURSDAY
START DATE – JUNE 27TH (free)
It’s Thursday night, and the weekend is crawling into sight. The room is dimly light, the whisky is flowing freely and there’s a thumping bluesman reminding you that sometimes life is an unfair prospect. But not tonight. Tonight is filled with liquor and promise; blues that lifts you up instead of dragging you down, and a bar that seems half a world away from where you were when you stumbled in off the street.
From the swamps of the deep south to the inner suburbs of Sydney comes Miss Peaches, a southern blues bar that serves up the most authentic soul food and the finest range of booze this side of town. So it makes perfect sense for us to nab the best blues player in the country, Ray Beadle, to soundtrack your evenings here, too.
As Sydney swings into winter, Ray Beadle will be warming the corners of Miss Peaches every Thursday evening from June 27, and as always, entry will be free. Ray Beadle and his incendiary live band, the Silver Dollars, are sure to get your toes tapping and your shoes shuffling with classic Rhythm and Blues straight out of the South, featuring the sweet sounds of legends such as Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Ray Charles and Robert Johnson.
Beadle’s unassuming virtuosity, raw-yet-rounded style of playing and musical knowledge is unrivalled, and his distinguished career accomplishments only paint a portion of the picture: Beadle has wailed with the best in B.B King’s club in Memphis, channelled the devil at Buddy Guy’s Blues Club in Chicago, and is a regular fixture at Byron Bay’s Blues and Roots Festival. In 2010 Beadle cleaned up at the Australian Blues Music Awards, taking out Best Song, Best Album and Best Male Vocalist.
As Australia’s best blues player, it’s only natural he’d want to settle into Thursday evenings at Sydney’s finest southern blues bar, and we’re thrilled to have him along for the ride. This will be the real deal; just don’t tell too many people – we don’t want things to get too heated in here.
