GET SET TO WORK UP A SWEAT
CLASSIC ACT’S FIRST VISIT IN YEARS
COMING all the way from America, jazz/rock band Blood Sweat and Tears will be performing at Rooty Hill RSL next weekend, bringing with them a level of musicality rarely experienced.
The group created its own genre in a risky move which took the world by storm.
Now after four decades of hit after hit, Blood Sweat and Tears is still playing to packed out crowds around the world.
Fans and curious music enthusiasts will be treated to a quality show which will include classic covers as well as the band’s own hits, such as You’ve Made Me So Very Happy, Spinning Wheel, And When I Die, Hi-Do-Ho That Old Sweet Roll and Lucretia Mac Evil.
The Grammy Award-winning group set a new standard when it came to fusing genres in the ’70s by successfully blending the intensity of rock with the beauty of jazz.
Bass player Larry Dorr said for the band, it was all about the qual- ity of music and ensuring the importance of music remains in today’s academic culture.
“It’s about making music that you like and what people like, and whatever you do put your soul into it,” Dorr said.
It has been 20 years since their last visit to Australia, but Dorr said the band planned to increase its visits to once every two years.
“That’s the plan,” he said. “We’re coming down to see all our old fans.”
The show will begin at Rooty Hill RSL at 8pm on Sunday, September 13.
Tickets cost $79. Details can be found at rootyhillrsl.com.au or call 9625 5500.
Blood Sweat and Tears lead singer Bo Bice will lead the jazz/rock band at Rooty Hill RSL this month.
