Toni Swain Band


Sunday 25th March, 3:30pm. Free entry.

" Few performers in Australia can match Toni Swain...her musicianship and stage presence is awesome enough, and then there's her voice which reaches right in and grabs you by the heart and soul. Her sets are built on strong rhythms that rollick and sway while her songs shine a distinctive light on everyday life. She is that good, she makes it look easy" (Bones Mackinnon, 3SERfm)

Fabulous rhythm and blues diva Toni Swain has been described as "world class" and "sophisticated". An incredible voice and music that "defies categorization" (Rhythms Magazine), blending blues, r & b, soul and jazz effortlessly in her original compositions.

Toni's new album "Deepest Water" skyrocketed to the #2 position on the Australian Blues and Roots Charts on release. It has been featured on numerous radio stations and programmes across Australia, and the band has now undertaken a busy touring schedule in Australia and New Zealand.

Major shows played this year include Echuca Blues, Devonport Jazz, Auckland Jazz and Blues festivals, and the band has been confirmed to play Broadbeach Blues festival.

Toni's touring band features the formidable Roy Payne on guitar (Don Walker band) and Mike Rix double bass, and Perth percussionist Garry Howard.

You are guaranteed that the music is always delivered with style and panache, a show not to be missed.

"Toni Swain finds that spot in my musical love life marked Bonnie Raitt and Shelby Lynne." (Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald)
