Baillie's Blues

Who: The Midnight Howlers
Where: Redhead Bowling Club
When: Friday May 28, 1999

WHEN MIDNIGHT HOWLERS guitarist JOHN BAILLIE says his slashing Chicago-style rhythm & blues guitar playing comes with a Texan influence he really means it.

Baillie, playing with his hard rocking trio this Friday night at the Redhead Bowling Club, has spent time gathering licks from Texas, Chicago and New Orleans, drinking at the well spring of the blues.

His brother ROBERT BAILLIE on bass guitar is one of the best, complimented by United States blues legend ALBERT KING for his rock solid but flexible playing style.

With powerhouse drummer ROB COXON, a former member of THE WITCHDOCTORS which also featured the Baillie brothers, the Midnight Howlers have been a hot favourite on the Australian blues circuit over the past 12 months.

The band appeared at both the EAST COAST ROOTS & BLUES FESTIVAL at Byron Bay this year as well as the AUSTRALIAN BLUES FESTIVAL at Goulburn.

Its potent brew of classic blues, modern R&B and classy originals have seen the Howlers grace the stage before international acts such as THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS, CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE, LONG JOHN BAWLDRY, BONDI CIGARS and MAL EASTICK. Get along to Friday night's show, which begins at 8.30pm. TE
