Opelousas And The Backwood Creatures

DOORS 1PM // KITCHEN OPEN// SHOW STARTS 2PM

Come one come all! 

A SPECIAL ONCE ONLY EVENT bringing two Melbourne powerhouse acts together for an afternoon of swampy goodness. Press your best suit, best dress, and fanciest shoes as this will be a RIPPER!

Opelousas take listeners on a captivating journey through a dramatic landscape filled with swaggering songs with smoky ingredients dazzling with the interplay between Kerri Simpson’s visceral vocals and raw guitar, Anthony “Shorty” Shortte’s hypnotic grooves and swamp-soaked percussion and Alison Ferrier’s menacing electric guitar, amplified fiddle and sultry vocal tones. Following on from their debut Opelousified (Music Victoria blues album of the year) in 2024 they released their much anticipated second album Opelousafried (PBS and RRR album of the week) and are in HOT FORM after a number of festival and venue appearances!!

Backwood Creatures perform blues inspired psychedelic southern rock at its very best. Comprising of three of Australia's hardest working musicians, Backwood Creatures will take you away with their swampadelic grooves, soaring guitars solos and dare devil musicianship. With Jeb Cardwell on guitar, Grant Cummerford on bass and Tim Burnham on drums, Backwood Creatures are guaranteed to impress with their 'no holds barred' attitude and their musical wit. 

They don’t play a lot so DO NOT MISS THIS FOLKS!
