Only days before the Blues on Broadbeach 2nd Lineup drops, we are excited to announce that international music legend Don Bryant, is set to travel to Australia this May to perform at Blues on Broadbeach.

The man behind countless iconic records, and responsible for arguably one of the most popular songs of all time “I Can’t Stand the Rain”, which Beatle John Lennon declared as the “best song ever” has joined forces with the incredible talents of Memphis band The Bo-Keys.

The Bo-Keys

The Bo-Keys, a group of young musicians endeavouring to keep the sound of Memphis blues, soul and R&B music alive, have experienced great success in their own right. The band have amassed a legion of local followers and accolades including tracks appearing in several feature films such as Soul Men, with Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Ma, Grudge Match, and Barnyard.

Announcing a new album as well as an east-coast Australian tour, Don Bryant and The Bo-Keys will perform intimate shows in Sydney and Melbourne before heading to the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival on the Gold Coast. Bryant’s highly anticipated album ‘You Make Me Feel’ drops Friday, 8 May 2020, with the first track Your Love Is To Blame released today, Tuesday March 3, 2020.

Chris Ingram, Director of IGG Destination Marketing said, ”We are thrilled to have one the greatest soul artists of all time, along with a band that has played such a pivotal role in the Memphis music scene, perform in Australia. This group of musicians is undoubtedly creating music history and their performances down-under are sure to be unforgettable for fans of the genre.”
