Snap Scene: Hollerfest – Day 2 – The Teskey Brothers, Wayne Dury, Rod Paine & Fulltime Lovers, Caravan Music Club – Saturday 18th Feb 2017

An incredible array of local and international talent will come together across two stages at the much loved caravan club and as the name of the festival suggests there will be truckloads of noise, excitement and rudely loud roots music, guaranteed to get your body shakin’ and feet flailing like there’s no tomorrow!

The Teskey Brothers came to be from seeking blues and roots of the greats from an early age, when exposed to musicians such as Peter Green, Otis Redding and Ray Charles. Thus began the musical convergence of Warrandyte Blues-Soul and everything in between. From 2008 the band have been stunning audiences with their style and power in the blues and soulful playing, winning legions of fans across the spectrum. Don’t miss this outfit when they hit the Caravan stage for the first time at HOLLER. New album out now ‘Half Mile Harvest‘.

Get ready for Wayne Jury in the Holler beer garden. If you’ve heard Jury, you’ll know that the title ‘coolest cat’ fits the bill. Wayne is the consummate bluesman with the style, guitar and vox to drive your grandma outta the house! Festival Director, songwriter, mentor – he even has friends in Sydney! But we forgive him that – get down and hear this man at Holler fest. RIP IT UP… you’ve been warned.

A smokin’ 50’s inspired Blues Combo headed by hep cat Rod Paine on harp and vox. Influenced by Lazy Lester, Slim Harpo, Jimmy Reed, Guitar Slim and all that’s down and dirty. The members have rolled their way thru the Australian Blues Roots scene for the past 25 years or so. Howlin Time, Straight 8’S, Blue Devil, Rocket 88’s, The Redliners to name a few. Winners of the 2013 blues challenge and travelled to Memphis TN to represent Australia in the 2014 IBC. The real thing tone hounds!
