Overview

Canberra Blues Society proudly presents 8 Ball Aitken Band feat. Dillion James on keys.

8 Ball Aitken has toured the world for more than a decade performing his swampy-blues-rock across twenty countries to date. He’s earned a loyal fan-base from his live shows and internet videos, while paying his dues as a singer, songwriter, slide-guitarist, and producer.

8 Ball moved to Nashville, Tennessee, USA in 2012 and worked for nine years with many of the best in the blues business today. Winning 2nd place in the 2021 International New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival hosted by blues/rock artist Samantha Fish.

8 Ball is back with a brand-new blues/rock album ‘ICE CREAM MAN 2’ hitting number one on the Australian Blues & Roots Charts (ABRC) in June 2023 and had four number-one AMRAP Chart hits. This new 12-song recording was mostly completed in Nashville right before he relocated back to Australia. It’s a highly anticipated follow-up to the first ‘ICE CREAM MAN’ album that also hit number one on ABRC.

With roots firmly embedded in New Orleans flavoured Funk and Blues, Dillion James has re-birthed the Hammond Organ and Boogie-woogie piano, enveloping the classic tone associated with an earlier era. Dillion's own album 'Heavy Keys' is currently number one on ABRC.

Get ready for a bluesy rockin’ night.
