Month in Review – May 2021

Photo taken at The Hipshooters event on the Blues Cruise, Brisbane River.


There were 5 Sunday sessions at the Hope and Anchor this month. All the artists were brilliant.  Highlights included the 16 year old sensation Felicity Kircher, an amazing young artist on the move, and Blake Durant, as always, pulling a fantastic crowd and doing his thing. Love your work!

We also had 5 Friday night gigs at the Durack Tavern. I’m a personal fan of Mark Easton so I was especially thrilled to see his gig. He even brought a young fellow along with him to play bass… what a great duo! The week after that we had Two Tears In A Bucket, who I first met a few years ago when they played at Blues on Broadbeach. They put on an awesome show, as always.

Olivia Ruth played at the Commercial Hotel in Redbank and had Harvey Blues join her, for the first time, on lead guitar. What an emotional roller coaster ride it is watching this young lady, she’s a very special talent.

We joined forces with Brisvegas Cruises to put The Hipshooters on one of their boats.  What a great day! There were fantastic views cruising along the Brisbane River, great food and an awesome crowd which made this one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen.

Don’t forget we have announced a photo competition on our Facebook page. Just post a photo of any of our artists at one of our events in June, and you could win $500 cash!
