8 BALL AITLEN in an intimate lounge room setting, laid back and acoustic... this will definitely be a good one!!!
For more than a decade, multi-awarded global troubadour, 8 Ball Aitken, has flown the Australian flag on the international circuit performing more than two hundred shows a year, and he is thrilled to be back in the place where his heart is.
Impossibly dedicated to his six-string muse and absolutely devoted to his audiences, 8 Ball Aitken’s funky, foot stomping energy and infectious blend of swampy blues-rock, have brought the party vibe to venues, festivals and high profile music events in the USA, France, Japan, Canada and Europe.
He has garnered numerous accolades, awards, rave reviews and recognition across genres with the single, (She’s Going To Mexico) I’m Going To Jail, reaching #1 on the Country and #2 on the Blues charts.
The international patron for the Airlie Beach Festival of Music is a prolific singer/songwriter and ace multi-instrumentalist, and brings his 9th self-titled album on the road for the Blazing Blues Tour.
All video clips including his USA release, Sleepy, the achingly beautiful Girl In A Million, Seven Bucks An Hour in A Chicken Suit, Yellow Moon and Shut The Front Door may be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/user/8ballaitken.
“This is outstanding. The way it should be done. You have a new fan.” ~ Ray Wylie Hubbard (Snake Farm)
"8 Ball's authenticity engages the entire room. His crowds grow exponentially each trip as the stories and tee shirts from his show spread across the town. It feels like you're seeing some huge act before it's been discovered…" ~ Joseph Drew, Moore’s Store, Ben Wheeler, TX
“8 Ball has created his own unique sound paired with an enthusiastic performance, two things that aren't very common these days. He puts on a great show! He always brings in a great crowd and keeps them entertained all night long! We are forever a fan!” - Old Texas Brewing Co. Burleson
"8 Ball is not an act any band wants to follow! ....even a 5 piece band will have to do some quick and serious note pounding to get 8-ball's vibe off the stage, it just hangs in the air long after he is gone.....he's a freakin solo red headed infector...!" ~ Mitch Lind, owner/promoter of Riverhawk & Stringbreak Music Festivals, USA
