Hussy Hicks in Canberra

Event Details

Canberra Blues Society proudly presents Hussy Hicks plus special guest support Minnie Marks.


Straddling the line between Folk, Blues, Country, and Roots, HussyHicks have earned themselves a mighty reputation, growing, from festival openers to festival favourites, seeing the group now appear at the biggest blues and roots festivals in Australia, The USA and across Europe while selling out their own tours across the three continents.

The band led by the duo of Leesa Gentz’ (vocals), Julz Parker (guitar) have spent the last fourteen years touring and forging their place as one the most treasured and celebrated working musical duos, whilst also being equally comfortable performing as a trio or in full band format, having taken home the Gold Coast Artist of the Year and Album of the Year honours. The band have released seven studio albums and played 1000’s of gigs, festivals, carving out a global reputation for their emotive lyricism, energetic live shows and fiery, frenetic instrumentation.

Hussy Hicks are not without adversary, Leesa and Julz, from the group had their studio and home destroyed in the devastating 2022 Northern Rivers Floods, which was off the back off two years of industry shut down from COVID. Onwards and upwards the group strives forward, with their notorious mischievous streak whilst pushing against the odds as they carve greatness from adversary, into 2023 and beyond as they prepare to release new material, apps and even try their hands at video game.

“A not to be missed act that are ready for the world.”
Peter Noble, Bluesfest Director

Special guest support: Minnie Marks

Minnie Marks is not just some blazingly electrified guitar playing freak of nature. She is also a rare and triple threat: Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

From winning the world renowned ‘Bluesfest Busking Competition’ in 2011, to taking out the People’s Choice Award’ at both Blues At Bridgetown and Nannup Music Festival, plus earning the winning place of ‘Best Guitarist’ for the Open Arms Festival competition, Marks is no stranger on the block.

“I’m shakin’ in my boots. One word, PRODIGY!”
Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus)
