Legendary underground institution, Checkerboard (formerly Checkerboard Lounge), deliver a dynamic, soulful well of emotion and playful abandon in collective improvisation over classic blues and soul. They perform at The Bridge Hotel Castlemaine on Friday 1st March.

Led by singing drummer Carl Pannuzzo and bassist Amos Sheehan, they curate shows fitting to events and venues, composing line-ups that always fire, from a wealth of some of Australia's best blues exponents such as guitarist Shannon Bourne, pianist Richard Tankard, pedal steel Garrett Costigan, Hammond Organists Tim Neal or Rev. Mick O'Connor, Harmonicas by Broderick Smith or Ian Collard and guitarist Dave Sheehan to name a few. No two shows are the same, but each unforgettable live experiences.

World class musicianship meets raw unbridled passion inspired by the moment's music and their ability to articulate the greater depth of expression to create seemingly rehearsed pieces out of nothing but great listening and reaction skills.

25 years later, still sees generations of musicians and audiences both national and international, enthralled by the single-minded creativity of this rhythm section-led roots band and how strongly the spirit of the blues can be felt, all the while through an almost childlike sense of play. Come along and witness Checkerboard perform at The Bridge Hotel Castlemaine on Friday 1st March. Exit Crowd supporting.
