Featuring Jimmy Vargas & the Black Marias and Wes Pudsey and The Sonic Aces
The Sonic Aces and The Black Marias battle it out in a swinging bump 'n grind frenzy for one night only!

Opening up the salvo will be Jimmy Vargas and the Black Marias with their tripled barrel blast of Crime Jazz, Burlesque Blues and Swing Noir featuring canary Marcella Minx and the Marias’ new burleycue muse Miss Peggy Petite who reinterprets the combo's original tunes with her signature sass and vavoom.

The International High Priests of Hep Rave about the Black Marias:

Will Viharo - Retrospective (New York USA)
"Vargas and his combo jazz up the notion of nostalgia with sensuous sass and ballsy rhythm and blues."

Jason Croft - Java Bachelor Pad (Chicago / USA)
Jimmy Vargas & the Black Marias. It's Beatnik Blues it’s Hollywood and Vine howls, and the lost souls of a thousand hucksters. It’s music that drags you to a down-and-dirty, bump-and-grind world."

David Flint - Reprobate Magazine (UK)
The Black Marias’ Latest Single, LAST YEAR'S BLONDE is a sultry seductive slice of vintage sin.

Nicholas Diak - Exotica Moderne (USA)
Suave, swinging and seductive. Jimmy Vargas has the crooning vibe down and the Black Marias are cool school jump and burlesque awesome.

Sonic Aces (Headliners)
World-acclaimed singer-songwriter Wes Pudsey and the Sonic Aces have penned and performed some of the most memorable anthems to emerge from Australia’s independent music scene. Songs now considered modern Rockabilly classics –My Baby Looks Like Betty Page, Maybe, There’s Gonna Be A Rumble, Hepster Daddy-o and many others have taken the Sydney-based rocker around the world several times, backed by his frenetic trio of roots-rock adepts The Sonic Aces. Headlining at music festivals including the Hemsby Weekender in the UK and America’s Viva Las Vegas, Wes has shared the stage with fellow roots-rock luminaries Southern Culture On The Skids, members of the legendary Rockabilly group The Stray Cats, and American swing-jump blues legends Royal Crown Revue, to name but a few.

The Sonic Aces three albums and one EP released with the Sonic Aces on indie label Curtis Records have become landmark works and have proved a huge success in markets across Europe, Scandinavia, The USA and Japan. With his multi-octave vocal range and uninhibited live performances, Wes has established himself in his home country as one of its preeminent roots artists and an act that simply can’t be followed. The past few years have seen Wes add legendary sax man Nathan Henshaw to the Sonic Aces’ lineup as his songwriting has moved further into the blues.
