Joining them for the ride will be drummer Joel Sutton, of Mal Eastick Band fame, who will be introduced to fans as Frank Corby departs to spend more time with his family.

Recent highlights for the Bondi Cigars included appearances at the Blues On Broadbeach Festival, Darling Harbour Jazz Festival and East Coast Blues and Roots Festival. Their last album, 12 Lies, took out Best Album at the 2004 Australian Blues Awards .
