Biography

72Blues are a good time, dirty-delta rock n' roll blues band that's been going hard & strong now for over 6 years. 72Blues let the music do the walkin' and take to the stage with a straight-up, stripped-down-honest & original approach to the blues.

Melbourne, Australia's 72Blues, featuring Lizzy & Reggie Ray, originally from Windsor/Detroit (also from Melbourne's highly acclaimed Konqistador) with Ben Hall, Grant Emery & Adrian Vincent - deliver a stinging blend of down south and signifying honky rawkin-blues; celebratin' old time traditional music, swing blues, delta blues, rock blues and nailing it with original, contemporary pop sensibilities. This mob of musos hen peck and scuffle a devilish blend of country-blues, swamp-blues, gospel rhythms, cotton field chants, gospel-blues and prison-blues.

Devils music meets Divine Intervention you might say! 72Blues keep things good and raw with their highly acclaimed debut CD release 'Said I Would' of 2005, with 11 wickedly raw tracks streamed together seamlessly rejoicing in a 70 minute sinners sermon. Followed by their single 'She Like The Fux, Like Electrolux 'of 2006 recorded in Motor City Detroit, USA - served up with a deluxe sizzler of a single with ZZ Top's 'Just Got Paid' and a live Studio 5 (PBS FM Melbourne) version of their previously released 'My Name' ( P.W. Long).

And who says you cant f@ck up the blues just a little bit more? Remember, 72Blues fight dirty and write music with the same killer instinct, continually re-inventing their punch combination of old time blues traditions. Just released! 'Ghetto Sessions' recorded straight outta Ghetto Recorder Studios (with Producer Jim Diamond) in the Motor City, Detroit - Michigan and an exclusive live recording at Melbourne's stellar venue - Northcote Social Club. All this fanfare followed by their recent June '07 tour of Moscow, Russia with sellout crowds and loads more live tracks to be released - 72Blues are sure to keep you guessing. No one knows what's comin' outta these sure-fired outlaws next...but we're sure it'll be a good helping of some bonafide southern lectro rock blues!
