The Cigars Not So Blue

Who: The Bondi Cigars
Where: Caves Beach Hotel
When: Saturday November 20, 2004

ARIA award-winning blues outfit THE BONDI CIGARS is in town to play two shows this weekend.

The first will be on Saturday at CAVES BEACH HOTEL. .

The second will be a headline spot in BLUES FEST at BURWOOD COLLIERY BOWLING CLUB on Sunday.

CHILLEN ROOM and TWIN FIN will also perform at the event.

The four-piece has six albums to its credit and is back with its latest offering, 12 Lies. This disc has seen the band branch out a little more, with some tracks having an alternative country feel and others boasting more pop rock than the rhythm and blues for which the band has become renowned.

Fans' response so far has been strong.

The band has built a solid following with a tour schedule that keeps it on the road at least 150 days of the year.

As a festival favourite, the band has regularly played events such as THE MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL MUSIC AND BLUES FESTIVAL and the THE BYRON BAY EAST COAST FESTIVAL. Blues Fest starts at 1pm and entry costs $10 or is free for children aged under 10.

Other attractions will include rides, jumping castles and sideshows.
