Lucky Roll of Tice for Shuffle Kings

Lucky Roll of Tice for Shuffle Kings

Who: Dave Tice and Mark Evans, The Shuffle Kings
Where: Northern Star Hotel
When: Saturday December 2, 2000

THE urbane godfather of Australian rhythm and blues, DAVE TICE, will sit in with swinging jazz cats THE SHUFFLE KINGS at the Northern Star on Sunday night.

Tice, a silver-maned guitarist/vocalist, had a teenage love affair with legendary blues growlers HOWLIN' WOLF, MUDDY WATERS and SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON which stood him in good stead for a prolific career.

He has the swagger, but more importantly he has the voice to command an audience's attention.

I caught Tice doing a few sets with the guitarless Shuffle Kings a while back at the Northern Star, and it certainly added a dimension to their unique sound.

Cookin' jazz, swing and jump inspired by the likes of LOUIS JORDAN and JOHNNY BURNETT is a sizzling meal, but throw a guitar in the mix and you have the meanest gumbo this side of New Orleans. Chow down from 8pm. - Ben Quinn
