Blues For The Homeless

Greetings Blues Music Lovers… On Saturday November 30, in The Backroom @ Chardons Corner Hotel, Guitar Brothers have selected a multitude of the most diverse and talented blues and rhythm bands in Australia. No matter what style of blues music gets your mojo workin’, you can be sure we’ve got it covered @ The 2019 Brisbane Blues & Rhythm Festival!
9 Hours of fantastic blues music with all proceeds going to The Brisbane Youth Service who help homeless & disadvantaged young people in South East Queensland.
Once again we’ll be raffling a signed Fender guitar & Marshall amplifier (valued at over $3,300) with 100% of the proceeds going to The Brisbane Youth Service.

There will be great food available from an assortment of food trucks on the day & affordable motel accomodation is available @ Chardons Corner Hotel if you want to stay the night.
