Blues and Brews event Devil’s playground again
FEATURING singer and dynamic harp player Jamie Symons (2013, 2014, 2015 Höhner Golden Harmonica Championship winner) out front, Devil's Kiosk derives its sound from elements of the earthy tones of the 40's and 50's blues masters, the soulful feel of 60's and 70's British blues as well as the virtuosic magic of more contemporary artists of the genre.
The band has taken it a step up and to the left having wowed fans in recent years at music festivals across Australia including the Woodford Folk Festival and the Gympie Muster.
In 2012 they unveiled their new name and direction at Blues on Broadbeach (an event at which they have appeared since its inception in 2002) adding many faces to their growing following.
That same year they thrilled the crowd and won the People's Choice Award at the Blues Association of South East Queensland's Memphis Blues Challenge and have since gone on to fulfil a busy playing schedule under their new guise.
With recent appearances at last year's Blues, Brews & Barbecues in Grafton and The Sydney Blues and Roots Festival, Brisbane's Grottofest and Anges Blues & Roots, Devil's Kiosk has been showcasing all new material as well as featuring their award-winning originals up and down the east coast.
With a heavy blues foundation and material with a darker edge, their sound encompasses all the drama and energy that is so evident in their live performance.
