Blues from the wrong side of the tracks.

 

When it comes to Blues, the older you are the more street cred you get. So on that basis these four aging rockers should be legends and if you ever stumble into Stumptown you will find they are.


In 2019, four South West Blues Club musicians formed a blues band and later that year, they won the Busselton Inaugural Battle of the Bands, kick starting their gigging career. Martin Boyd pulls the big wires and gives every Stumptown song a fat meaty bass, Rod McCosker, pounds the skins, (he’s the youngster of the bunch),
Ron Kinson (better known for his time at Home Brew), is an extraordinary guitar player, with delightful silky guitar skills and front man, ‘Hound Dog’ Dave Bassett provides the gravelly vocals and a screaming blues harp.


The band pays homage to the musical legacies of Slim Harpo, Howlin’ Wolf, Snooky Pryor, Willie Cobbs, Elmore James, Son House, Jimmy Rogers and many more blues legends.


Stumptown is reigniting and reinventing Jump Blues, putting it back on the map, for a whole new generation.
If you ain’t stomping your feet and shaking your booty by the end of the first song, then someone should check your pulse.
