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, 12 May 2018 (boarding 11.45am) and is guaranteed to tick all boxes with performances by award-winning performers THE KATE LUSH BAND and ALI PENNEY so book your ticket(s) as there are only 150 available.

The Kate Lush Band were one of the standout performers at the recent Girrakool Blues Festival on the NSW Central Coast while Ali Penney shouldn’t require any introduction to most of you as she has performed in pretty much every Blues festival in the country.

… When describing The Kate Lush Band think ‘tight as a tin of sardines’, Chicago-slick and ‘Old School’ soul drenched rhythm & blues with a dash of bourbon-infused New Orleans Funk. Add to this to their USA-charting success, a swag of major international songwriting awards and you have one of the most outstanding bands in Australia.

Check out some video of Kate and the band:

Also performing on the cruise is Australia’s Queen of the Blues Ali Penney. Ali may consider herself a pianist first and this shows in her skills on the keys, but the honest vulnerability in Ali Penney’s vocals has won her a couple of Australian Blues Music Chain awards for her singing.

Ali’s songs take the listener on a journey through blues, shuffles, pop, soul, ballads, jungle beats and good ol’ rock n’ roll with Ali’s quirky take on life, romance and the human condition.

Ali has played for and supported some of the best; Lynwood Slim, Johnnie Johnson, Chris Cain, Igor Prado, Lucinda Williams, Cephas and Wiggins, The Tailgaitors and Chris Wilson plus she was invited to sit in and play with Walter Washington and the Palm Court Orchestra in New Orleans.

Kate Lush’s recent album “Let It Fly soars throughout. Like Dave Hole & Fiona Boyes before her, it won’t be long before Kate Lush becomes a household name among blues lovers in the U.S. Get on board before the tsunami from Down Under reaches our shores. You’ll be happy you did.”
