The Hornets

The Hornets are steeped in the blues, they rise out of the Yarra Valley delta meeting at the mythical crossroads where Chicago grit has blown in. This is an earthy blues band with a pedigree of outstanding musicians…"Warwick McFadyen The Age

The Hornets feature some of the country’s well known and respected blues and roots musicians. They have released six CDs , to rave reviews and have gained a regular following of devoted fans as a result of many  live performances. Consequently, The Age named The Hornets “The best blues band in Melbourne”, and the Herald Sun said the band “demanded attention”.
