Live Music: 8 Ball Aitken
April 5 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
For more than a decade, multi-awarded global troubadour, 8 Ball Aitken, has flown the Australian flag on the international circuit performing more than two hundred shows a year.
Impossibly dedicated to his six-string muse and absolutely devoted to his audiences, 8 Ball Aitken’s funky, foot stomping energy and infectious blend of swampy blues-rock, have brought the party vibe to venues, festivals and high-profile music events in the USA, France, Japan, Canada and Europe.
He has garnered numerous accolades, awards, rave reviews and recognition across genres with the single “(She’s Going To Mexico) I’m Going To Jail,” reaching #1 on the Country and #2 on the Blues charts.
The international patron for the Airlie Beach Festival of Music is a prolific singer/songwriter and ace multi-instrumentalist, and brings his 10th album Swamp Blues on the road for the Rack Em Up Australian Tour.
All video clips including his USA release, Sleepy, the achingly beautiful Girl In A Million, Seven Bucks An Hour in A Chicken Suit, Yellow Moon and Shut The Front Door may be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/user/8ballaitken.
