Our Blues on the Water cruises are all about having fun, listening to some great music and hanging out with seriously cool people who know how to enjoy themselves.
Our next cruise is on Saturday, 9 March 2019 (boarding 11.45am) and is guaranteed to tick all boxes with Aussie trailblazer of modern blues and one of the country’s most recognised guitarists LLOYD SPIEGEL performing on the Rocks Rhythm Boat. Lloyd was recently named in Australian Guitar Magazine’s list of the top 50 Australian guitarists of all time.
A touring artist since age 11, the seven-time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most unique stories in music. His show blends jaw-dropping guitar expertise with a commanding voice, powerful songwriting and storytelling to deliver a complete concert experience, launching him onto theatre and festival stages across the globe.
His 8th release, ‘Backroads’ is a hard edged, personal and brutally honest account of Spiegel’s life and follows up from his previous albums, all debuting in the top 10 of the Australian independent music charts and holding the #1 spot on the Australian Blues Chart for several months.
“A revelation, the consummate performer, an Oz Blues & Roots icon.” – Rolling Stone Australia
“A guitarist almost without peer, Spiegel deconstructs how the blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door” – Australian Guitar Player Magazine
“Spiegel is ALL presence, authority, rhythm and drive. He epitomizes control, soul and passion with white hot ferocity and blazing instrumental mastery dangerous enough to spark a destructive inferno.” – The Age, Melbourne
Spiegel’s unique experience, command of his instrument, storytelling, and powerful stage persona has put him at the forefront of acoustic blues, re-inventing the style while maintaining a close relationship with its foundations and traditions.
