Event description

Description

Described by the London Times as “like a bouncy castle Bouncy Castle for grown-ups”, a Ben Waters show exudes the kind of high octane energy that fits right in at the Cherry Bar. “I visited the Cherry Bar last year with my son Tom. Great venue – so happy to be coming back as a performer” (BEN WATERS)

“Fresh from performing 2 sell-out shows in January at the world-famous Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London’s west end, Ben Waters starts his Australian & NZ tour in Sydney in early February. Performances at the Clarendon Theatre (Blue Mountains) and the Foundry616 Jazz Club are followed by the Sydney Opera House. After a trip to New Zealand Ben arrives in Melbourne for shows that take in “Blues at the Briars” festival, Frankston Arts Centre, the Satellite Lounge, the Cherry Bar and Pistol Pete’s (Geelong) before appearances at this year’s Port Fairy Folk Festival.

“Performed with flair & bravado” (Birmingham Post), Ben’s piano and vocals combine with the vibrant & passionate saxophone of special guest Derek Nash for a high octane tour around the roots of boogie, blues, R&R and jazz. Rounding out the band will be local favourites Sweet Felicia (bass/vocals) and Ashley Davies (drums).

Nominated by Jools Holland as one of his top 10 favourite pianists of all time. Ben has toured the world in a career that has seen him playing and recording with legendary figures including the Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Shakin Stevens, PJ Harvey, Jools Holland, Sir Ray Davies & Leo Sayer. A boogie woogie favourite, Ben was voted the #1 European boogie piano player in 2016 at the Boisedale Awards. Most recently he contributed to UK Sky TV’s documentary “Music Legends we’ve lost in 2017” with a tribute to Antoine “Fats” Domino, whose music features in any Waters show.
