Experiencing the red hot swinging jazz and blues with Melody Graves and the Hokum Redemption is like stepping out in old-time New Orleans where the feet are stomping to the snappy beat and the blues are as sultry as a smokey bar.
This six-piece Brisbane-based outfit are renowned for their musicianship, vocals, energetic live shows and authentic sound. Featuring not one but two vocalists, a sliding trombone, the rattle of the washboard, the sweetest sounding swing guitar this side of the Pacific, and a rhythm section to boot that's always on time.
You'll also find the band's little sister playing in quartet mode with vocals, guitar, double bass and drums as Melody Graves Combo.
