Event Details

Canberra Blues Society proudly presents 8 Ball Aitken and Taya Chani. Swamp-blues-rock meets soul-blues.

8 Ball Aitken is bringing his slide-guitar party gig to the Zeppelin Room on Friday 10 February. 8 Ball is on a national tour supported by Sydney soul singing sensation Taya Chani.

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 won second place in the 2021 International New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival hosted by blues woman Samantha Fish. His album release ‘ICE CREAM MAN’ hit #1 on the Australian Blues & Roots Charts in March 2021.

“I first saw him when he was young, hairy and straight outa Brisbane. Now he’s all growed up and going global. Unstoppable!”
— Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool, Eagle Rock) Melbourne, Australia

“8 Ball Aitken demonstrates that the blues is alive and well Down Under with this deep-in-the-pocket collection of modern blues and blues rock
that’s built atop a swamp blues structure.”
— Chicago Blues Guide

“For a guy from Australia, 8 Ball Aitken really has the Delta in his bones… I wouldn’t be surprised to find Mississippi mud on the soles of his shoes.”
— Gonzo Okanagan

Taya Chani is a singer, guitarist and songwriter born and raised in Sydney, Australia.

With a soul soothing voice, Taya delivers a genuine and comforting presence that will dig deep. Instantly captivates a crowd with her vocal delivery and soulful songs. Her album ‘Restless Heart’ has been a hit with music critics and fans from Sydney to New Orleans and back.

Taya has shared the stage with many of Australia’s top blues and roots artists including Ian Moss, Simon Kinny-Lewis, Ray Beadle, Clayton Doley, Adam Pringle, 8 Ball Aitken, Mitch Anderson, Harry Bruce, Jesse Redwing, Matt Ross, Rob Susz, Pat Powell, Lisa Ohlback, Sally King, Big Mamma Fran Liddle, Shane Pacey, and many more.

In her travels to the southern states of America she has found the true homeland of the music in her heart, particularly New Orleans, Nashville, Texas, Mississippi and Memphis.
