Tony Joe White - Bluesfest Sideshows 2009

TONY JOE WHITE returns to our shores again this April with a new sound. Yes, it is the dirty, sweet guitar, deep vocals and drums we all know and love, but the Swamp Fox has added a keyboard player to his minimalist live approach. Extra texture, like alligators AND bullfrogs. Get your dancing shoes on!

It is no secret TONY JOE WHITE loves Australia. He has been a regular visitor for Love Police since 1997, and is a firm festival and club favourite. This tour will see a mix of intimate club dates, as well as a beer barn double bill with the Black Key’s Dan Auerbach at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne. The Swamp Fox will also tear it up at the intimate Boogie festival in rural Victoria and East Coast Bluesfest in Byron Bay and West Coast Bluesfest in Perth.

TONY JOE WHITE will be joined on stage by legendary stick man, Jeff Hale and the new addition of keyboardist, Tyson Rogers and is certain to play all the hits he is famous for, Polk Salad Annie, Rainy Night In Georgia, Even Trolls Love Rock and Roll, Steamy Windows...the list goes on forever.

White has most recently recast a number of his classic songs on “Deep Cuts”, definitively proving that time has no jurisdiction over funky. Tony Joe cut the tracks with a rich palette of beats and loops, utilizing both digital and live drums, strings, organs, and the unmistakable timbre of his guitar. White’s timeworn baritone is positively haunting, like a restless spirit conjured by the funk that was always the core of his music. “Deep Cuts” not only updates a cache of classic songs for a contemporary audience, it reframes them, revisiting his timeless imagery in a new, modern context.

“Deep Cuts” will be available exclusively at all shows.
