The Lachy Doley Group ‘Make or Break’ Album Launch Tour + Rhythm X Revival

May 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

‘No one plays like Lachy. He is amazing’ – JIMMY BARNES (Cold Chisel)

Dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the Hammond Organ, Lachy Doley is the most celebrated Blues/Soul/Rock Organ player in the world today. A player who can pump, pamper and occasionally pound the most unbelievable sounds from a keyboard; sounds that are intense, ferocious and sometimes transcendent.

The Lachy Doley Group are a unique sound in the classic and sometimes very traditional genre of the Blues. A power trio consisting of Joel Burton on Bass, Jackie Barnes on Drums and of course Doley firing on the Hammond; his vocal screaming from the heart and the incredibly rare Hohner D6 Whammy Clavinet in which most people double take on when they realise that sound isn’t an electric guitar but a 70 stringed keyboard with a huge Whammy Bar sticking out the guts of it.

‘Makes you feel good the way he plays that Clavinet’ – BOOTSY COLLINS (Parliament, Funkadelic)

‘Lachy Doley is the greatest living organ player in the world today’ – GLENN HUGHES (Deep Purple)

Opening for Lachy is Rhythm X Revival (Melb), recently back from Memphis where they made the semi-finals in the International Blues Challenge. Their self-titled debut album, recorded at The Teskey Brothers’ studio in Melbourne, and released in April 2018 reached #4 on the Australian Blues chart and was also nominated for The Age Music Victoria’s Best Blues Album.

Beautlful harmonies, infectious melodies, hypnotic electric guitar licks and an animated rhythm section underpin Rhythm X Revival as an energetic Australian rocking country blues band.

Fronted by John Luke-Shelley, this is a band to definitely keep an eye on.

‘This fast-paced electric-drenched blues, is fun-filled, energy-packed and keeps you guessing’ – The Rockpit
