Honk stomp spooky swamp country rock blues one NZ show only!

8Ball Aitken is the redneck preacher at the shotgun wedding between country and blues. It doesn’t matter which part of the family you’re from - what does matter is the funky foot-stomping hullabaloo at the all-night party afterwards. Hailing from Far North Queensland, Australia (now Nashville-based), he grew up as a teenager in a run-down tobacco shed, making a living picking tropical fruits by day and picking guitars by night. 8 Ball has performed at festivals and clubs throughout USA, Canada, Australia, and Europe.

He’s toured in Japan four times, where he headlined the popular Rokko Sun Music Festival. He has also played extensively in Germany, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and the UK. 8 Ball’s had several award wins for both country and blues music including a Southern Star Award and two Queensland Song Awards (for ‘Outback Booty Call’ & ‘Yellow Moon’).

His singles ‘Rogue Pony’, ‘Cyclone Country’ & ‘Hands On Top Of The Wheel’ have all been top 10 country chart hits around Australia. 8 Ball has also had Golden Guitar and APRA award nominations for songs he has written. His fourth album ‘The Tamworth Tapes’ went to number 2 for a month on the Australian blues & roots national chart.
