Echuca Winter Blues Festival is alive and kicking - July 28 - 3, 2022.
ESCOLITA SOUL is a band Iseula Hingano and I started in the middle of lockdowns and we haven't had much opportunity to show off this great band so we're pretty chuffed to be doing 3 shows at Winter blues.
I'll also be doing a solo show during this great festival.
I'll also be doing some solo shows with the occasional guest at Pistol Pete's in Geelong.
The "Sing a song of sixpence" show at the Potato Shed in Drysdale was a cracker and I look forward to more opportunities to work with that crew again.
Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival runs from February 10- 13 and I'm pretty rapt to be part of this amazing festival once again.
More shows below...I'll see you in the soup.

setting. The next round will feature Mick Thomas,

“Singing the blues with nothing but a guitar and a passion, he's all grass roots and heart - somewhat like the late Dutch Tilders”. CHRIS LAMBIE Rhythms Magazine May/June 2018.
“Wayne Jury is one of the best blues singers in this country.”
Michael Smith, Drum Media Sydney.
Wayne Jury is more than blues. Recognised as a multitalented tunesmith (signed as ‘House Writer’ and artist to the legendary J Albert and Son Publishing, home of ACDC, Rose Tattoo, Easybeats since 1994.) His versatility as a performer sees him at ease with ensembles or solo, delving deep into soul, jazz, and rock to combine these genres with his distinctive voice, style, and performance.
Fronting rock bands across Australia since he was 16 he’s been called on by some of Australia’s most iconic bands to front their gigs when they’ve been missing a lead singer. His initiation into the world of music began in Geelong supporting Australia’s finest touring bands (AC/DC, Ayres Rock, Little River Band, Buffalo, Cold Chisel, Dragon, to name but a few). Since then he has played thousands of gigs all over Australia, including opening for blues greats Robert Cray, Albert Collins, Canned Heat, BB King, Chris Cain, and Buddy Guy. His own bands have included Black Cat Moan, soul band Drybones, as well as frontman for legends Ron & Jeff King (Foreday Riders) and young guitar prodigy, Nathan Cavalleri.
