8 Ball Aitken Band @ The Zeppelin Room

Canberra Blues Society proudly presents 8 Ball Aitken Band.

The 8 Ball Aitken Band is on an Australian Tour for the first several months of 2024. Catch them at the club on Friday 26th April supported by Dillion James.

8 Ball Aitken has toured the world for more than a decade performing his swampy-blues-rock across twenty countries to date. He’s earned a loyal fanbase from his live shows and internet videos, while paying his dues as a singer, songwriter, slide-guitarist, and producer. 

8 Ball moved to Nashville, Tennessee, USA in 2012 and worked for nine years with many of the best in the blues business today. He won second place in the 2021 International New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival hosted by blues woman Samantha Fish. 

He's back with a brand-new blues rock album ‘ICE CREAM MAN 2’ that hit #1 in the Australian Blues & Roots Charts in June 2023 and had 4 number #1 AMRAP Chart hits. This new 12-song recording was mostly completed in Nashville right before he re-located back to Australia. It’s a highly anticipated follow up to the first ‘ICE CREAM MAN’ album that also hit #1 on the Australian Blues & Roots Charts in March 2021.

8 Ball produced ‘ICE CREAM MAN 2’ himself. The cast of musicians include Grammy winning drummer Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy), saxophone legend Buddy Leach (George Thorogood & The Destroyers), Sydney soul singer Taya Chani and 8 Ball’s younger brother Dillion James Aitken on Hammond organ and piano. 8 Ball’s partner Jessy Lynch also sang backup vocals. Jessy & 8 Ball welcomed their new baby boy ‘Sonny Miles Aitken’ into their musical family early last year.

"8 Ball Aitken demonstrates that the blues is alive and well Down Under with this deep-in-the-pocket collection of modern blues and blues rock that's built atop a swamp blues structure" - Chicago Blues Guide
