Description

The Gloomy Island Blues Festival 2018@MOM Livehouse

The first blues festival in Hong Kong! As the grand finale of the 3 months long festival, bands from Taiwan, Philippines, and Hong Kong will be sharing the same stage, bringing you a magnificent blues concert you’ve never experienced on 27/10.

Taiwan band Muddy Basin Ramblers are revival experts in modern days. A very rare combination of musicians and styles, they're touring with you throughout the good old American jazz, blues, swing and jug band culture. The seven men band uses instruments that originated from the dawn of the 20th century - washboard, tub bass, resonator, etc., I'm betting there are sounds that you might never hear of in your life before.

Philippine harmonica player Ian Lofamia and his band - The Ian Lofamia Band had toured in many places before, like a harmonica festival in Guangzhou, China and a blues competition in Memphis, USA. Now they'll be coming to Hong Kong, a suppressing city and the city blues of theirs sounds like a hell of a match.

Local singer-songwriter Tomii Chan blends his influences from blues, folk and country music into his own, by adopting a DIY model of work - from composing, recording, production to publishing, he is determined to speak for himself the best he could, with sincerity and simplicity.

Local sextet Shake That Thing might be the only one of its kind in this city. They play the urban blues with a rich instrumental arrangement with horns, it's energetic enough to let everybody soak into the sweat and swing of the electrified sound.
