Eddie Boyd & His Boys

Eddie Boyd & the Phatapillars have been described as a lot of things, but the thing that tends to follow them around is “dirty”. Not in a cleanliness way, as more hygienic men you’re not likely to find, but in terms of their music – “dirty John Butler”, “dirty Jack Johnson” etc. The Blues Mountain-bred trio took out the Bluesfest Busking competition last year. They have performed at festivals including Sydney Blues Festival and Corrimal Blues Stomp, while sharing bills with the likes of Wolf Mail, Chase the Sun, Claude Hay, Marshall Okell, Lloyd Spiegel and The Rumours. On April 1 the band released A Lover and a Fool. The Loft, Warrnambool – April 25. Alex Bowen supports.
