BB Factory is returning to Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival in 2020!
Since forming in 2015, BB FACTORY has wowed audiences throughout South East Queensland and Northern NSW with their audience interaction, high energy, and encore drawing performances at Blues On Broadbeach, Bellingen Bluesfest, Mitchell Creek Rock ’n’ Blues Fest, and Bayside Bluesfest.
A cracking live band with seasoned musos oozing from their ranks, playing original contemporary & progressive blues/roots interspersed with unique interpretation of old school classics, BB Factory released their debut full length all original album “First World Blues” in May 2018.
It follows an impressive track record in channelling sounds from the authentically classic and gritty side of blues, funk, rock and roll and gospel, with each single reaching #1 on the iTunes Blues/Roots charts and the album debuting at #9 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Chart and remaining in the top 20 for six consecutive months.
USA front man Harold Jackson is known as BB Factory’s ‘Toastmaster General’. Harold is a natural singer able to transpose his voice from the soulful clean to the downright dirty blues shouting from the yesteryear.
Harold’s vocals are matched with the blistering guitar work of Pedro Verhoeven, augmented with the tasty Hammond organ licks by Bruce Crouch, and driven by the band’s exemplary rhythm section, composed of Aussie bassist Craig Hamilton and drummer Cvitan Barac.
Their 2019 live album, “Let The Good Times Roll (A Right Royal Tribute To The King Of The Blues)”, recently climbed to #14 on the International Blues Radio Play Charts (IBBA) and earned the band a finalist nomination for ‘Group Of The Year’ in the Australian Blues Music ‘Chain’ Awards.
