LITTLE BILLIE - Rock'n' Blues Night + Creek + Rum for Legba

Get ready for an epic night of Rock and Blues as Brisbane's hottest blues/ rock/ gritty rockabilly band 'Little Billie' teams up with local bands 'Creek' and 'Rum for Legba' at The Fyrefly in St Kilda!!! Three killer live acts, one night only!!

LITTLE BILLIE, a four-piece band hailing from the Sunshine Coast Australia, has a distinctive sound that’s rooted in the blues, with a gritty rockabilly edge, and a pumping live vibe! Featuring killer blues lead guitar, powerful female vocals, punchy double bass, and hard-hitting drums, Little Billie takes no prisoners, and their energetic live performances are undeniably powerful!!

Formed in 2015 by front woman Tahnee Sarah (Billie), the band has evolved from their traditional 50’s Chicago blues and rockabilly roots by mixing it up with an original modern twist, to produce a high- energy blues, rock and rockabilly fusion!! Little Billie continues to delve deeper into their new, heavier rock vibe with their two latest releases ‘Make You Bleed’ and ‘Slow Burn’..

Fresh off the back of their international shows including ‘Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea’ with Joe Bonamassa, Little Billie is definitely a band to catch!! Check out Little Billie Music on YouTube, Spotify, and iTunes, or catch their electrifying shows at popular Brisbane and coastal venues, and Blues and Rockabilly festivals worldwide!!

CREEK
'Creek have not mucked around getting their name and their music around. Blending heavy blues, psych and alt rock, Creek put it out there with way above average musicianship and plenty of hair and high notes' - AMNplify.
There’s a lot on the cards for Creek followers in 2019! After having wrapped up a rewarding East Coast Aussie tour, the band have breathed life into the cold heart of Winter with the release of the third instalment from their upcoming debut full-length LP, ‘Made Of'. Spacious harmonies and guitar layers vibrate throughout, providing an adequately warm foundation for delivering sentimental sensations of resilience: https://creekrocknroll.bandcamp.com/track/made-of.

The hairy Creek rad-lords originally ascended from four riverbanks Victoria-wide, merging in Melbourne to share tales of nature, fiction, friction, and the world in which we all exist. With influences spanning across a diverse range of musical styles - alt rock, prog, psych, blues, folk, jazz & 60’s/70’s pop - it’s in the band’s framework to deliver an unforgettable experience, filled with timeless beats, wild rhythms, and captivating guitars.

Creek has given audiences a run for their money on many stages throughout Australia. The boys have been working their way into the festival circuit, making themselves heard at events the likes of Mojo Burning (2019), Queenscliff Music Festival (2017), Folk, Rhythm & Life Festival (2016 & 2018), Echuca-Moama Winter Blues Festival (2019 - 2017). With a sound that can either work with the grain or fight against it in a rock’n’roll context, Creek have a certain adaptability which enables them to fit bills of varying style. In the past, they’ve cranked the amps up to support Aussie icons Shannon Noll and Chocolate Starfish, and have made light of their creativity when supporting alternative acts the likes of 1000Mods. The band have toured state and country-wide; and wherever they’ve been, they’ve never failed to get people on board.

RUM FOR LEGBA
Out of Sunbury Victoria, RUM FOR LEGBA weave together open tuned 5-string guitars, and rollicking jungle drums... it's Atomic Hypnotic Rock & Roll Blues...

They believe in the healing properties of juke joint rock & roll; the possession of the spirit; cranked valve amps, and the eternal mission to transcend time and space...

Hailing from the regional swamps of the Victorian outskirts, they are professionals in the art of voodoo-driven fuzzed out sonic medicine, their live performance a true vibrational exorcism.
