Way Out West has a new home!

We are very pleased and excited to announce that the Way Out West Roots Music Club Inc now has a permanent home. The NEWPORT BOWLS CLUB have kindly agreed to be the home of music in the West. Our punters have given an overwhelming ‘thumbs up’ to Newport. The generosity and the welcome that the President, committee, staff and volunteers have given us has been sensational. We look forward to many years of partnering with the Newport Bowls Club in bringing to our community the best roots music in the land.

Recently described by Guitar World as the “Jimi Hendrix of Sacred Steel”, Nikki Brown is an electric lap steel guitar phenomenon, melding strikingly vocal-like slide guitar lines with wild and funky wah-infused rhythms creating a sound that is sonically rich, vibrant and uniquely her own. Hailing from Toledo, Ohio, Nikki was born into a Church-based slide guitar tradition known as Sacred Steel and learnt from renowned steel guitar master, Del Grace breathing an infectiously fervent energy into what is a traditional guitar style. To add, Nikki, is a powerful singer and performer with a distinctive approach developed over a lifetime of gospel singing, resulting in a powerfully rich, raspy soul-gospel vocal style delivered with impeccable flare and flamboyancy. Nikki’s sisters Gloria (rhythm guitar and vocals) and Belinda (bass guitar and vocals) and cousin Tomika (drums and vocals) share the same deep musical heritage and love of infectious gospel-soul funk- blues music, a sound that has its melodic roots in the Sacred Steel guitar tradition. Joining Nikki and the Browns is legendary Australian guitarist and music producer, Dom Turner, of the awarded Australian blues act, Backsliders.

The program aims to help budding young Blues musicians and vocalists gain confidence and experience with the guidance and mentorship of established Blues musicians and music industry professionals. The program has grown over the past 4 years under the guidance of Wayne Jury and this year in January a group from last year's Program represented MBAS at the Youth in Blues Showcase at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
