Thredbo Blues Festival 2012 January
Posted on Monday, 28th of November 2011
The 17th Thredbo Blues Festival is just around the corner and this year’s program promises to be a state of origin battle for your soul. Two of Australia’s biggest sounding R & B bands will be competing for the undivided attention of your dancing shoes. The first is Marco Goldsmith’s Blue Heat from Melbourne, a band that sweeps all before it in drive and energy and the other blues juggernaut is the original line up of the Mighty Reapers including Dave Brewer and Robert Susz, a Sydney based funk/soul line up that keeps on delivering tight, punchy and professional to the last note.
Hard rockin’ blues men Kevin Borich, Harry Brus and Darren Jack are all in Thredbo for the weekend so the dancing shoes will keep on smokin’ . If your feets start failin’ from all the dancing, Jeff Lang will be here to grab audiences in his vice like grip with an atmospheric journey through his roots blues world full of slide, sleight of hand and straight out power.
The girls are on the program as well with US duo Diane Van Deurzen and Lisa Otey from Tucson Arizona in Thredbo for the first time singing up a boogie woogie storm and another Thredbo debut for Jo Jo Smith an Aussie blues songstress with a gutsy style and energy that will see her fit right in. There are plenty more names on the program and with music running from Friday evening until the early hours of Monday morning there is plenty of time to catch up with most of them.
Performances are in venues all over the village, on the mountain and in the village square. If you book your accommodation now we can book an “early bird” festival pass for you at only $125 for the whole weekend including chairlift access. We have our 5th night free offer on over the weekend as well so if you would like to escape to Thredbo for a summer season break with some hiking, alpine action and a Blues Festival thrown in, this is your chance.
