The next Sounds Delicious event on Friday, March 24 will be USA Grammy nominated blues man and troubadour Eugene Hideaway Bridges and his band.

For lovers of great music, Sounds Delicious events are as good as it gets.

It has taken a decade of touring, giging, festivals, and experience as well as a passion for great food to makes Sounds Delicious events so special.

There is nothing like being up close to a great artist. Candles, beautiful setting and you and your friends, right there where you can see the beads of sweat on the artists’ faces.

Not having to jostle for a view or deal with people talking at the top of their voices through the show. The more respected the artist by the audience and hosts, the better their performance. It's that simple.

Sounds Delicious themes the menu to the music and cultural origin of the artist.The menu on March 24 will be Southern American inspired with pulled pork and beef sliders and southern fried chicken with some mouthwatering accompaniments.

Eugene is a nomadic musician living his life on the road. His home is wherever the next performance takes him, and every year this is from America through Europe, to Australia with many other stops in between.

Born in 1963, son of the blues guitarist Hideaway Slim, Eugene is the fourth child of five. His mother was from the Bullock family (the same as Anna Mae Bullock, better known as Tina Turner) and Eugene claims he got his guitar skills from the Bridges side and his voice from the Bullocks. At five he was already playing with his father around Louisiana. 

With his brothers as The Bridges Brothers he sang gospel and was the musician of his church touring with the Pastor, Elder A A Edwards. At thirteen Eugene was entering R&B talent shows and had formed his first R&B band The Five Stars.

Emerging Local Blues band the Swamp runners will be supporting Eugene, and will no doubt will get a huge amount of inspiration from being part of the night as well as give the night some local flavor.
