Yamba Cup brewing up fun

DON'T miss this year's Blues Brew and Barbecues line-up at the Grafton Racecourse on Saturday as part of Yamba Cup Day program.

Headlining the day is Devils Kiosk, who have taken it a step up and to the left, having wowed fans in recent years at music festivals across Australia. Their sound derives from elements of the earthy sounds of the 40s, and 50s blues masters, the soulful feel of 60s and 70s British blues as well as the virtuosic magic of more contemporary blues artists.

Joining them is Dan Hannaford who has opened shows for the likes of Donavon Frankenreiter and The Black Sorrows and his independent debut Rust and Dust was featured as album of the week on ABC Radio.

He showcased his talent at the iconic Byron Bay Blues Festival being named on the bill alongside John Fogerty, Cold Chisel and Crosby Stills and Nash. His single Deeper Water was also included on the Bluesfest 2012 compilation album.

Also on board the BB&B express are Maclean lads Nick and Sam whose unique blend of rock, flamenco and rhythm, as well as a number of other genres, captivates audiences and shows how much music can be made from two guitars.

In 2013 the boys won the Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Competition, which led to playing at Bluesfest 2013 and recording time with Nick DiDia at Studio 301, which resulted in their debut EP, which they have been busking and performing widely to promote.

Finalising the line-up is Keogh Maybon who plays mixture of Acoustic Blues and Folk Rock music resulting in an easy listening and vibrantly entertaining act.

While working a variety of covers, his interesting original songs reflect views of the world around him. Keogh has the gift to get audiences groovin' to great tunes incorporating a slide guitar, foot beats, didgeridoo and a solid voice.

Join these top talents and enjoy the usual array of gourmet barbecue treats and boutique ales and ciders from the James Squire tasting tent.
