CHRIS HARLAND BLUES BAND

The Chris Harland Blues Band hosts CBS June Blues Jam.

The Chris Harland Blues Band has the command and the precision to nail every number they play. The simplest formula; the maximum impact. Every set remains a memorable, musical event, mixed with originals and revisiting the best of the Blues standards: B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters… the list is long, the excitement sustained.

The host band will be followed by some of the finest musicians in the region jamming together for a great afternoon of live music.
Bring your family, bring your friends and bring your dancing shoes.

CBS EXPERIENCE


Attended and played at the Blues jam today. It’s 42 years since I last played in Canberra and what a great experience I had. What impressed me the most was the friendliness and acceptance of the other musos there. I got to play with the exceptional Dan Fernandes for the first time which was a real pleasure plus other great players. Can’t wait to come down again for another jam. Thanks to everyone involved.

Phil O’Connor



We had a blast! See you all again soon.

The Black Hat Band



Last night @ the Narrabundah Harmonie German Club monthly Canberra Blues Society! No practice at all together with these guys before getting up on stage, it was a spontaneous set. I was blessed to be performing with such brilliant players.
