Day Of The Dead Tribute To Screamin’ Jay Hawkins

Bonanza Presents
The Day Of The Dead
Tribute To
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
with D-66 live + Guest DJ Dirty Omar + Bonanza djs

A very welcome return for our favourite One-man Blues sensation and fire-breathing, whiskey guzzling, Blues animal.

D-66 has been holed up in the deserts of North Africa (I kid you not) and after training in the desert camps of the Touareq, 2 sex changes, kickin off the Arab revolution and surviving the terrorist bomb plot against his life in the Souks of Marrakech he is back with a vengeance and a Robert Johnson-like transformation, see him play like no other of his kind!!!

This Tasmanian devil-dodging one-man band from Hoarse Records has toured the world as far afield as Brazil and Martinique where he recorded his album 'Chainsaw Blues', armed only with his guitar, a mobile phone + the local bull-frogs as backing singers!!!... So, fresh or rather sweating, from his recent European/Mediterannean/Sou​th American tour, as well as being featured on Mark Lamarr's Radio 2 show, D-66 is gonna blow your socks off with his dirty-dawg show of animalistic, cannibalistic, bone-through-the-nose Screamin' and Hawking.

Jack White can only have wet dreams about being this gnarly and this good... 'Learn to play guitar like this man Jack and maybe Bonanza will book you!'

D-66 has also specially composed some dirt-road, bad-ass Country tunes just for us... Aren't we the lucky ones?... Yeeeeee Haaaaaaa! AND OF COURSE he’ll be playing a number of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins tracks to pay tribute to the great man.

'At least 50 times better than The Kills'
Artrocker Magazine

'A full spectrum of rabble-rousing sounds that stretch The Blues to breaking point'
