Geoff Achison, Doc Span and friends

It’s a blues party with internationally acclaimed guitarist/vocalist Geoff Achison and New Jersey born harmonica master Doc Span team up for a sensational night of music at The Sound Lounge Friday March 9th and at Joe’s Waterhole, Eumundi March 10th. Both have travelled the world extensively and bring their incredible wealth of combined musical experiences together for a very rare collaboration of blues styles.

Geoff Achison began his playing career with the legendary ‘Dutch’ Tilders before striking out on his own and kicking off his solo adventures by winning the ‘Albert King Award’ at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. He’s kept up a gruelling tour schedule world-wide ever since playing inventive electric guitar with his Souldiggers band or performing his remarkable Solo Acoustic set. Doc Span was born in Hoboken, New Jersey and was playing the blues clubs of Chicago in the 1960’s during the formative years of classic urban blues. He toured all over the US and Latin America for many years before finally settling in Australia where he has established himself as one of the premier harmonica players on the scene.

The pair will meet up at The Sound Lounge and at Joe’s Waterhole beginning with a showcase of Geoff’s immensely popular Solo Acoustic work. He’ll be joined towards the end of the set by Doc for some acoustic blues-jamming. After a short break they’ll return with a crack rhythm section for an electrifying set of blues standards and funky originals
