BIG SOUND: Music Industry Summit & Showcase
10 - 12 September 2008, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, Australia
Big Sound Showcases

8 Ball Aitken

10:50 PM The Press Club - Empire Hotel, 339 Brunswick St Fortitude Valley

8 Ball Aitken performs contemporary honk, stomp, Australian swamp tunes – original whoop’n’hollerin’, good-timey anthems flavoured with a heaping helping of alternative country, blues & roots. It’s a big sound from Queensland’s deep north, bouncing off the remnants of extinct volcanoes, booming through the canefields, and delivering foot-stomping fun. 8 Ball tours across Australia, Europe, USA, Fiji (3 tours) and Japan (4 tours). He rolls into your personal soundtrack, packing tripped-out wet tropics cowboy sounds from the roadside, roots music with balls. His third album, ‘REBEL WITH A CAUSE’, (produced by Garth Porter, ex-Sherbet) currently receives radio airplay in 26 countries. 8 Ball’s signature slide guitar song ‘Yellow Moon’ won the blues & roots song of the year at the 2008 Qsong Awards.
