Tanks are delighted to announce two-time Grammy award winning blues musician Taj Mahal is headed to Cairns for one amazing, not to be missed, night in the tropics!

You could call Taj Mahal a singer, composer, producer, two-time Grammy-winner, world-class musical collaborator, musician’s advocate, world traveller, fisherman or cigar aficionado. These titles are all accurate; yet do not convey the warmth, humour and soulfulness of Taj and his music.

For more than 40 years he’s been playing his own distinctive brand of music – variously described as Afro-Caribbean blues, folk-world-blues, hula blues, folk-funk and a host of other hyphenations! A 2009 inductee into the Blues Hall of Fame, Taj Mahal has received a huge nine Grammy Award nominations over his career and has won two of these.

“The one thing I’ve always demanded of the records I’ve made” he says, “is that they be danceable.”
