‘Blue Shaddy’ are a high energy ‘Blue’s, Country, Rock band that gets the audience right on board during their live shows. While Dean and Sandy hold some fat back groove one minute, then a loaded rolling freight train fang the next, Jim and Belly go head to head together trading guitar and harmonica solos and licks and a flurry of emotions. Never a dull moment is usually the moto! If the audience isn’t dancing we’re doing something wrong.
‘Blue Shaddy’ have independently released four studio albums to date, and are currently working on some new material to be released in the not too distant future.

There’s a sweet spot between rollicking folk melodies and punk-infused blues; and The Tommyhawks have found it. Addison is a rare mythical creature with the voice of a unicorn; combine that with dark sax harmonies, home-made electric mandolin, super-tight rhythm and a contagious on-stage presence you’ll be mesmerized from the word go.
