The line up is …..
Baxter Stone and the Chocolate Dogs is an uber-popular South Coast band that gets every dance floor heaving.
It features Baxter Stone on lead guitar/vocals, Jillian O’Dowd on drums/vocals, and Adrian Morgan on bass guitar.
Their unique sound combines rock, blues, alt-country and rockabilly, with a touch of the psychedelic.
BS & The CD’s released their album ‘Barking Up The Wrong Tree’ in November 2017, recorded with Ben Moore at the Shark Island Institute. This album has a digital release, on Spotify and Itunes, with national airplay. In February 2018, a revamped and remastered version of Baxter’s Slowburning album recorded in London was internationally released.
The band members in their time have shared a stage with Icehouse, Paul Kelly, The Warumpi Band, Weddings Parties Anything, Pseudo Echo, Chrissy Amphlett and many more.
This time The Dogs are joined in their set by guest artists guitar master Jeremy Butterworth (Red Eye Records – The Bhagavad Guitars) and south coast singing Diva, Michelle Palmer for special spot performances.
If you feel like heading to New Orleans via Chicago on a bump n roll ride with some high-octane horses then Horse Drawn Cadillac is for you.
You haven’t heard this band, but you have seen them dip into this mode.
HDC is ‘Benji and The Salt Water Sound Systems’ alter ego, giving the band a chance to rock the house with some favourite blues standards and hidden treasures from the deep vault of musical treasures from these great cities. Built for all on the floor!
HDC is Jono Dallimore and Ben Fowler on guitars, Simon Milman on bass, Nello and Mic Elderfield on sax and Nello on Mississippi saxophone, Jayda Tham adding some vocals and Will van Ekert from the Low Down Riders driving the caddy down the road.
