Three Kings play 2 sets from 9.30pm FREE
Described as a Melbourne blues super group, Three Kings brings together a trio of this country’s most dedicated, authentic blues artists, with down and dirty, totally inspiring results.
Officially formed in 2011 by Ian Collard (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Benny Peters (vocals and guitar), and Jason Liu Soon (drums), Three Kings’ self titled debut album took out the award for best blues CD in The Age Victorian music awards only a fortnight after release. The album entered the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Chart at number two before shooting up to first place.
Three Kings sound like an old 45 found in the bottom of an abandoned shed. So real you can practically hear the record crackle and the needle pop when they are onstage.
Shut your eyes, one minute you’re in Louisiana The next The Windy City as the Three Kings take you hostage on a dangerous joy ride through the backroads of American roots music.
