Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest - The Spirits Blues Band

The Spirits Blues Band

The Spirits are a six piece outfit that are all capable vocalists who revere the traditional masters of the genre; from Robert Johnson to a plethora of talented players of the 50’s, to modern electric legends including original material written by The Spirits over the past three decades.

With harmonica, saxophone, lead and rhythm guitars, percussion and six strong vocalists, the audience never knows what is coming next. The Spirits deliver a wide diversity of inspirational material; their hard driven rhythm delights the dancers in every audience!

The Spirits often play two distinct shows at festivals and concerts; one show being the History of the Blues, which evolved from “The Back to the Crossroads Show” a production by the band’s lead guitarist Alex McKeen and Dave Knobel - Qld Poetry Slam Champion.

The second show is a far more contemporary set which allows The Spirits to mould their own rendition of material that often crosses over with shades of delta, roots, boogie, jazz and funk. Far more than a guitar band - the harmonica & sax present wonderful colour and improvisation.
