Boxing Day Public Holiday
It’s on again! Two of Melbourne’s premier blues/roots acts team up for a jam session of enormous proportions! BOXING DAY BLUES has become a tradition each Dec 26th at The Corner pairing two of Melbourne’s best-known blues artists ably backed up by the hottest backing musicians in town. For fans of gut bucket blues, driving funk and balls to the wall roots-rock, this is surely one of the most essential gigs on the blues calendar. CHRIS WILSON has been an essential part of blues and rock music in Australia for over thirty years recording the classic ‘Short Cool Ones’ with Johnny Diesel in 1996 and also fronting the superb Crown of Thorns and The Spidermen. Chris is currently celebrating 2 decades since the release of his seminal concert album ‘Live At The Continental’.
His powerful voice and instrumental prowess mark him as an undeniable master of his craft. GEOFF ACHISON arrived on the Melbourne blues scene playing incendiary lead guitar with the legendary ‘Dutch’ Tilders. He has gone on to tour internationally and has recorded over a dozen albums winning accolades for his inventive songwriting and guitar style. In 2016 Geoff has released his latest album of original material ‘Another Mile, Another Minute’
