Smoke Stack Rhino

Smoke Stack Rhino at Settlers Tavern

Friday, 31st May 2024 - 9:00pm to 12:00am


Smoke Stack Rhino have been hailed as “Australia’s most exciting up-and-coming blues and roots rockers” (Beat Mag).

Featuring a band-name that’s just one heavy animal away from the blues (just ask Howlin’ Wolf), this trio from the Yarra Valley near Melbourne are wowing crowds around Australia. In the last 12 months, they’ve appeared at festivals like Blues at Bridgetown, Moruya Blues and Roots, St Kilda Blues Festival, Healesville Music Festival, Echuca Winter Blues and more. They’ve found airplay on triple J and Triple M, ran Rock The Valley Music Festival and placed on Spotify playlists.

New album The Mojo Funk sees the group claim a sound of their own which they call… ‘The Mojo Funk’. Mixed by Ocean Alley’s producer Callum Howell, the record debuted at #2 on the ARIA Blues/Jazz Albums Chart and is “a high energy, semi-psychedelic montage of funky blues rock that’s sure to get your mojo back”.

On stage the band’s electric live show reaches new heights. Singer-guitarist Ash King is a whirlwind with resonator guitar in hand, his earthy vocals reaching from deep baritone low notes to high screams, drummer Matt Berg pushes the band forward from behind the kit and bassist Shane Andison stays rock solid, holding the whole thing together with an infectious, catchy groove.

Smoke Stack Rhino are on the rise and are well and truly here to bring the mojo back, launching their new EP at Settlers Tavern.

Love the stomping blues sound…
