Wards Xpress

Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter Ross Ward’s first ‘Bluesfest’ appearance was in ’95 , where the idea for the band ‘Ward’s Xpress’ was conceived. That’s a little over twenty years of keeping a band working that is musically committed to originality and in a constant persuit of excellence ( along with a deep love of The Blues! ). For Ross, it’s also been over 45 years as a guitar player, working and recording with some of the best artists and musicians in this country over that time. In July 2015, ‘Wards Xpress’ celebrated their 20th anniversary by releasing ‘The Back Roads’ retrospective album ( a remastered selection of tracks from the band’s back-catalogue ). The CD hit the ‘Number One’ position on the ‘Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Chart’ and stayed there for the next three months, giving the band their second consecutive ‘No 1’, after the success of 2012’s ‘Five Lanes’. The Xpress delivers a high energy show, consisting of blues, rock, funk & soul, with some world music and jazz influences. Ward’s Xpress remains as one of Sydney’s hardest working live outfits, and has an enviable track record as festival artists. The current line-up of noted musicians includes bassist Alan Britton , drummer Tony Boyd, keyboardist Steve Russell, and band leader Ross Ward on guitar and vocals.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfg9I9nJ3cw&feature=em-upload_owner
