Whats On

Hogjaw (USA) + Blackballed

Friday, 12 October 2018 - 8:00pm

 

For over 10 years now, HOGJAW have continued to immerse themselves in music that they completely believe in. Music that defies the boundaries of country, and rock, perhaps more aligning themselves squarely in what they believe to be southern rock, or at least what they figure that genre should sound like in 2018.

 

Since the early beginnings, their music has reflected the personal experiences and flavour of life that all members still enjoy. Hogjaw is a family. A family that started in the late 1980s with a group of guys in high school who began to play music together, learned their craft together, and became what would inevitably become lifelong friends.

 

 

Over the years, band projects would come and go, members would change, and new directions would be taken, but the underlying connection of that family was never lost. In 2006, with a newly kindled interest in getting together on the weekends for some jamming, BBQ and cocktails, the members would again come together as one –a band that was ready to finally giveit all they had and write the music that they believed was in short supply. Hogjaw was finally realized.

 

 

The first record “Devil in the Details” was born from those jam sessions, and the material that had been stacked up like cordwood.Since those early days, Hogjaw would go on to release five studio records. Each of which would find its way into the ears of those who connected with the raw feeling, grit and lyrical journeys of the music.

 

Hogjaw would enjoy the “Grassroots” movement that would propel them forward in the vast world of original music and as a band, has kept the integrity that so many have identified with.

 

PLUS SPECIAL GUESTS BLACKBALLED

 

 
 
With shades of Free, the Stones, QOTSA, Clutch and Led Zeppelin, Blackballed's latest LP Fulton's Point is an album that leaves you repeatedly rushing for the replay button.
 
Blackballed's reputation as a band not to be missed grows as they continue to smash down the walls at every show, leaving a line of converted fans in their wake.
 
"Blackballed stunned all of us first timers with the energy of their performance...to make it entertaining - you need to be good. You need to be an expert before you can break the rules, and, happily Blackballed are expert musicians."  B Side Music Magazine
