of en­ter­tain­ment’s quiet achiev­ers, Juzzie Smith (pic­tured), is a true grass­roots phe­nom­e­non, pre­fer­ring to dodge the spot­light and let his mu­sic do the talk­ing. Smith’s low-key ap­proach has earned him a large and loyal fan­base thanks to reg­u­lar per­for­mances at fes­ti­vals, mar­kets and community events in Aus­tralia and abroad. The Ban­ga­low­based per­former’s mu­sic em­braces the blues, folk, groove and roots, which he per­forms by com­bin­ing gui­tars, har­mon­ica and per­cus­sion. His en­er­getic, soul­ful style has made him a favourite at the Blues on Broad­beach fes­ti­val. Smith’s vo­cals also em­ploy el­e­ments of Tu­van throat singing, a tradition orig­i­nat­ing from north­west Mon­go­lia. Smith, whose mu­sic has fea­tured on TV shows and in surf films, heads up the high­way to Bond Univer­sity this week­end to show off tunes from his new al­bum, Live @ The Zamia The­atre, the fol­low-up to Tak­ing Time Out. The Live at Bond se­ries show will fea­ture sup­ports Kasey Thomp­son, Lind­is­farne Angli­can Col­lege and Tim Goodburn, with MC Kylie Mitchell-Smith.

Juzzie Smith plays Live at Bond, at Bond Univer­sity’s ADCO Am­phithe­atre, on Sun­day from 3-5pm. En­try is free. Smith also plays the Mul­lum Mu­sic Fes­ti­val on Novem­ber 22 and 24.
