Louis Baker will be playing from 6.30 - 8.00pm
Louis is a singer/songwriter from Wellington, NZ. Currently study at NZ School of Music, majoring in Jazz Guitar. He's performing and recording as much as possible, and intends to follow his dream of being a world class musician, creating hope for people around the world.

Then, fantastic Australian bluesman, Lloyd Spiegel will be rockin' the house from 8.00pm

With 18 years, 6 albums and a swag of accolades to his name, Lloyd Spiegel is the most experienced young Blues artist in Australia. Performing, writing and recording since age 10, Lloyd has established himself as one of this country's leading Blues artists and most respected guitarists. Combining his youthful enthusiasm with experience and presence well beyond his years, his incredible command of the guitar, powerful voice and high energy performance captivates any audience.

Since going solo 1995, Lloyd has performed in Australia's premier music venues from The Palace and The Basement to The HiFi Bar as well as headlining two sellout shows at the world renowned Melbourne Concert Hall. In that time, he's been billed with the likes of The Waifs, Cold Chisel and Billy Thorpe.

Between writing, recording and extensive touring within Australia, Lloyd has traveled worldwide with tours to Germany, Italy and the U.S.A, where he's toured coast to coast 6 times. During these tours he's performed at some of the world's best Blues venues and largest festivals. He's played bills with legendary Blues artists including Buddy Guy, Etta James and Ray Charles, as well as artists from a range of musical genres - Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton and Willie Nelson.

During his time in America, Lloyd became a highly sought-after musician. His festival appearances were often noted as an event highlight, outselling headline artists and drawing record crowds.

Most recently, Lloyd has been commuting between Melbourne and Tokyo, where he has found a great deal of success. A DVD recorded live at Tokyo Disneyland has become a ‘must have’ for guitar fans in Japan and has sparked the interest of the Japanese mainstream. He is now performing on commercial television and radio as well as appearing is countless magazines.

While fans and critics have always focused on his guitar skills, Lloyd has come of age as a composer and lyricist. His 2005 release, ‘Tall Stories’ saw Lloyd re-invent himself as an artist - it was quickly recognized as a breakthrough recording for him and proves him to be an integral part of Australia's ever-changing Blues music style. The follow-up, ‘Timber & Steel’ was an entirely solo affair that mixed his considerable song-writing skills together with his exceptional acoustic guitar expertise.

Lloyd has also been awarded the following honours:

• Australian Blues Award, Band Of The Year 2005
• Victorian Blues Award, Band/Solo Artist Of The Year 2004
• Victorian Blues Award, Song Of The Year 2004
• Victorian Blues Award, Male Artist Of The Year 2004
• Official Ambassador To The Australian Blues Festival 2005 / 2006
