Blues On The Mountain imageWhats On Logo button image 19-TWENTY - BLUES ON THE MOUNTAIN:
Blues on the Mountain presents 19 - Twenty

After a massive year performing at major festivals all over Australia, popular Blues and roots act, 19 - Twenty, are heading to the Central Coast and will be performing a special one of show at the iconic Mangrove Mountain Heritage Hall on Saturday the 10th of September.

This will be a rare opportunity to catch one of Australia's most exciting live acts at such an intimate venue and is also 19-Twenty's only Central Coast show before heading interstate to perform at the Mitchell Creek Rock n Blues Festival.

The band's high energy performances and engagement with their audience has packed festival venues from Woodford Folk festival in Queensland to Blues at Bridgetown in W.A., where the band picked up the festival's people's choice award two years running.
19- Twenty have also performed alongside some of the biggest names in Australian music such as Angus and Julia Stone, Augie March and John Williamson at the Queenscliff Music festival.

Featuring Syd Green (Leonardo's Bride) on Drums, Kane Dennelly - lead guitar/vocals/acrobatic dance moves, and Johnny G's thumping double bass lines, 19 - Twenty are described by premier online music publication, Tone Deaf, as "one of the most exciting riff and groove based blues and roots acts emerging from Australia"

The band has also received airplay on Triple J, for their single "YOLO", and wide spread acclaim for both their debut album "Zion" and recently released self-titled album.

"Last year I drove for 7 hours to catch 19- Twenty's performance at the Great Southern Blues Festival, and I know a lot of fellow Coasties did the same. They have a great following here on the Coast. To be 19-Twenty's first show announced of their upcoming tour, at a time when they are in such high demand, is fantastic and a real credit to the music fans of the Central Coast" Event organiser, Ryan Howard, said.

Supporting 19 - Twenty, on the night, will be 2015 Home Grown Acoustic Award winner, Toby Wells. Toby has supported acts such as Thirsty Merc, with his band Stranger Than Paradise, and also performed as a soloist alongside well known blues and roots musicians, such as Genevieve Chadwick, Grizzlee Train and the PJ O'Brien band to name a few.

Tickets are limited and cost $25 (Adults), $10 (Youth 12-16yrs) with Children under 12yrs, accompanied by a paying adult, free.
Food and refreshments will be available on the night or byo welcome.
Doors open at 6pm.
