Blue Shaddy bring good vibes

Geraldton Guardian - - TELEVISION -

The last time Wheat­belt blues band Blue Shaddy were in Ger­ald­ton, they had every­one at this year’s Nukara Mu­sic Fes­ti­val stomp­ing their feet late into the night.

The rock­ing four-piece will bring their in­fec­tious en­ergy back to Ger­ald­ton on Sat­ur­day with a one-off show at The Ger­ald­ton Ho­tel.

Born and bred in Keller­ber­rin, Blue Shaddy’s mu­si­cal path was in­evitable, with broth­ers Jim and Gra­ham “Belly” McClelland trad­ing gui­tar and har­mon­ica licks for hours on end. With Jim’s wife, Sandy, jump­ing on­board on bass gui­tar and vo­cals, Blue Shaddy have an un­de­ni­able chem­istry that is cap­ti­vat­ing to watch.

Af­ter a 15-year hia­tus, drum­mer Dean Wuk­sta has re­turned to the band, hav­ing formed part of the orig­i­nal Blue Shaddy line-up for 10 years.

Ger­ald­ton rhythm and blues duo Cooky & the Toad­man will kick off the night at 8.30pm.

Tick­ets are $20 and can be bought at try­book­ing.com.

Blues, coun­try and roots band Blue Shaddy will bring their foot-stomp­ing, high-en­ergy sound to The Ger­ald­ton Ho­tel on Sat­ur­day.
