Bitches Brew

Bitches Brew is a carnival of young-ish souls brimming with some old time music, already setting stages a-light, with Blues on Broadbeach next on their list.

Bitches Brew has been cooked up by trombonist/ vocalist Lisa Baird. The Melbourne veteran (Lily & King, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Lloyd Spiegel, CW Stoneking) has married some sensuous and oh-so-soulful original blues & roots compositions to a crack force of badass instrumental compadres, to birth a brand new force in Melbourne’s live music scene. Complemented by drummer Chelsea Allen (Great Aunt, Paris Plan), guitarist Stella Anning (SAT, Push Portal), bassist Sarah Holmes (Thando, SPIRE) and saxophonist Cheryl Durongpisitkul (Koi Kingdom, Australian Art Orchestra).

Bitches Brew fuses deep blues and roots undercurrents with hip-hop and jazz elements, to bring audiences riveting, ecstatic performances. They are as music is to medicine; rich food for the soul, as love is to laughter and the wailin’ horn is to the whoopin’ holler; thumbing basses and smiling faces; when the brew hits the cauldron, this is one kitchen you want to be in.
