BLUES REVUE! Dickey James and the Blue Flames with Stormcellar (Australia) $5 door

Described by one reviewer as “those electrified blues masters”, Dicky James and the Blue Flames is one of the hottest blues bands touring the Midwest. They have been captivating audiences everywhere with their superb brand of smoking’ Chicago style blues.

Going to a Stormcellar gig is like discovering a long forgotten box of your favourite tracks that you can't quite put your finger on.

Built on the bones of a straight forward Rhythm & Blues line up of Bass, Slide, Guitar, Drums & Harp, Stormcellar should fit neatly into one category. Add a mandolin, a melodic singer with the range and power to travel from Gospel to Southern Fried Rock, throw in the occasional fiddle, Convict Colonial bit of Folk,  complex adult oriented arrangements and lyrics that do more than just rhyme and you have a very interesting beast indeed; a modern, original band.
