Canberra Blues Society proudly presents the Jive Bombers featuring Steve Edmonds
Formed in 1985 the Jive Bombers have been performing constantly all around Australia at music festivals, clubs and functions. They have won prestigious music awards for both Jazz (APRA music awards 2001) and Rhythm & Blues (Wintersun Festival 2002) and have gained praise as one of the finest bands in the country.
With the return of Don Hopkins on piano/vocals the Jive Bombers are back to their original line up, almost, and we now have Mark Roulston on double bass/vocals, and Steve Edmonds on guitar, one of Australia’s finest blues/rock musicians. As a guitarist he has recorded and toured with luminaries such as Jimmy Barnes, Billy Thorpe, Renee Geyer, Human Nature, Delta Goodrem, Shannon Noll, Doug Parkinson, Matt Finish, Hippo’s, Doug Williams, Australian Idol Band and many more.
The band members have performed and/or recorded with some of the world’s greatest artists including The Beatles, Little Richard, Long John Baldry and many more.
Don Hopkins came second place at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, 2012 competing against 84 other regional winners from around the globe in the solo/duo category.
Their music ranges from Swing, Blues, Boogie Woogie, and even a bit of Latin. The band has released
three CDs to date.
This outstanding line-up will definitely have the house rocking, so don’t forget your dancing shoes!
