Hastings’ very own garage rock ‘n’ roll blues band Happy Go Blues are here and what better stage for them to play on than the Hastings Day Westernport Festival on the weekend of 20-22 February.
The three-piece formed in 2013 channelling rock gods like Cream and Jimi Hendrix into songs with classic rock inspired vibes and old school grooves. Initially intending to be a slightly larger group, Sean, Callum and Jesse had trouble finding musicians able to cope with the many songs spilling out of their heads so Sean took over lead vocals as well as base.
Since then they have been jamming and annoying the locals and even recorded their first live demo in two days.
Happy Go Blues will now be shake rattle and rollin’ with Dirty Boogie, Rob Papp, Safari Motel, Atomic Hi-Tones and many more as one of the festivals top acts.
Catch Happy Go Blues at the Westernport Festival, Hastings Foreshore, Friday 20 February, RPP FM Stage, 6-7.15 pm.
