More Details

The Gloomy Island Blues Festival 2018, the first blues festival in Hong Kong! Bands from Taiwan, Philippines, and Hong Kong will be sharing the same stage on 27/10, bringing you a magnificent blues concert you’ve never experienced in this city.
Taiwan band Muddy Basin Ramblers are revival experts in modern days. A very rare combination of musicians and styles, they're touring with you throughout the good old American jazz, blues, swing and jug band culture. The seven men band uses instruments that originated from the dawn of the 20th century - washboard, tub bass, resonator, etc., I'm betting there are sounds that you might never hear of in your life before.
Philippine harmonica player Ian Lofamia and his band - The Ian Lofamia Band had toured in many places before, like a harmonica festival in Guangzhou, China and a blues competition in Memphis, USA. Now they'll be coming to Hong Kong, a suppressing city and the city blues of theirs sounds like a hell of a match.
Local singer-songwriter Tomii Chan blends his influences from blues, folk and country music into his own, by adopting a DIY model of work - from composing, recording, production to publishing, he is determined to speak for himself the best he could. The everyday life of living inside of a high-rising cluster has nothing to do with the country lifestyle, but it has no down effect in affecting the sincerity and simplicity of the guy's music.
Local sextet Shake That Thing might be the only one of its kind in this city. They play the urban blues with a rich instrumental arrangement with horns, it's energetic enough to let everybody soak into the sweat and swing of the electrified sound.
Acts:Tomii Chan (HK), Shake That Thing (HK), Ian Lofamia Band (PH), Muddy Basin Ramblers (TW)
