Jay Hoad – Billabong Beats

Fijian born multi instrumentalist Jay Hoad is bringing his unique show back to QLD as he makes his way around the globe once again, launching his new album with his one man band extravaganza. He’ll be performing at B illabong Beats as part of the 4th Billabong Beats on Sat Aug 20th.

This year Hoad wanted to bring the show to as many regional towns as possible, literally weaving around the entire coast of Australia from start to finish, with 170 shows announced including dates in every major city and over 100 regional towns, as well as festival shows in Fiji, Bali and Thailand. “Yeah, we just wanted to bring the show to places that didn’t really have touring artists to often, and this year’s tour features so many weird and wonderful instruments that it really gives the fans a chance and to hear and see something cool, new and unique.”

Jay just released his new album “ Off the Cuff” which he wrote and recorded with famous guitarist Chris Finnen who was recently awarded into the “American Guitarist Hall of Fame” alongside artists such as Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton. Fans will have an opportunity to hear much of the new material performed live at his upcoming shows, performing on shovel guitar, didgeridoos, dulcimer, dulsitar, cigar box guitar, komby chassis guitar, weissenborn lap steel, steam punk guitar, drum kit, percussion, loops, voice and more.

Says Jay “I’m super excited about this year’s tour, so many cool locations and festivals on the various legs, and really excited to bring the new tunes to the fans around Australia and beyond.”
