Bob Log III - Cyclonic Slide Guitar Storms
Description:

Bob Log III is a one-man band slide guitar party, and he is bringing that party to Melbourne for one show only at The Substation in Newport, on Saturday 17 August. A perverse product of the Arizona desert, Bob Log 111 has been diligently traversing the globe since 1996, showcasing his incomparable talents and developing a devoted following along the way. A whirlwind of dextrous limbs and digits, this super star sonic showman has to be seen to be believed. Clad in his cannonball man, extra tight jumpsuit and signature motorcycle helmet with telephone/microphone attached, Bob Log 111 unfailingly sweats up a river while kicking on a kick drum, stomping his homemade foot cymbal and playing slide on an old archtop guitar. His endless pursuit for musical mayhem and a downright party has seen his unique talents utilised for children’s birthday parties, obscure beer barns, mammoth music festivals and everything in between. Yet beyond these mesmerizing visuals, lies the true reason for Bob Log’s international, cult status and superhero adoration. It is quite simply the guitar playing – finger picked lightning, sliding up and down, stopping when it wants to, then starting again when it feels like it, all in a way that makes people move uncontrollably, smile and reel. After a hurricane tour of the USA, the perfect storm that is BOB LOG III sweeps into Melbourne for one night of musical mayhem.
