Kyra Bee and The Illegals
Thursday 11 January 7.00pm
Kyra Bee and the illegals are a six-piece soulful, blues-based Perth Hills ensemble who delight audiences everywhere they play. Runner up in the Bridgetown International Blues Competition in 2016 they continue to perform in venues in and around Perth city.
With Blues, Country and Jazz flavours, singer Kyra Bee astounds audiences with her powerful vocal delivery:
“Fantastic!” Bill King;
“Great singer, fabulous band” Richard L Pooley;
“Awesome show last night. Loved your rendition of Caught Out in the Rain” Juangelinä Lee Jallepinä.
Kyra is supported by the illegals featuring Gerald Ball and his smooth, electrifying guitar licks alongside Jason Maxlow (bass guitar) and Bart Hayes (drums), the tight and punchy rhythm section first developed with their other project, Two Dollar Dog, well-known at Bridgetown Blues. A student and teacher of music, rhythm guitarist Melanie Dius, and saxophone, harmonica extraordinaire, Allan Lester complete the six-piece outfit to provide a unique and quality live sound among the best on offer.
With covers from Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Muddy Waters, Imelda May, B.B King, Kaleo, Beth Hart and Big Mama Thornton, plus some bluesy originals, you will be taken on a sultry, soulful and spell-binding journey through some of the world’s most well-loved popular music.
