BELLHOPS

BELLHOPS

The Bellhops are Sydney's Kings of R&B, Rock'n'Roll, Blues and Swing, and are a 6 piece outfit performing a generous helping of well known covers, dance favourites as well as a sprinkling of original tunes.

Sydney, NSW, Australia
The Bellhops are Australia's Premier Award Winning Blues, Jump'n'Jive and Swing exponents and former Australian Blues Awards (The Chain Awards) Band of Year. Their latest release No Reservations was voted Australian Blues Album of the Year while their debut release Room Service was Runner Up for Blues Album of Year. The Bellhops lineup is big and brassy, featuring their very own Horn Mafia - the Brassholes. The Bellhops are also blessed with the virtuoso guitar skills of John Russell whose slide guitar and comping work is among the best in Australia. The talents of Vocalist Ian Dittman and Rhythm Section of Steve Lovarini and Mark Roulston add to the wealth of riches in this superb outfit. Add to this to the substantial songwriting abilities of Dittman & Russell and you have a formidable combination of the 'must see' variety. Check Out The Player Biographies. The main musical influences of The Bellhops are the Swing and Jive era of the late 40's, the Rock'n'Roll of the 50's, the Soul and R&B of the 60's and the Blues music legacy of so many great Artists. The Bellhops pay tribute to these influences in their recorded work and also in their live performances with material drawn from artists such as Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley and Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett and James Brown. The Bellhops can be found regularly playing around the Greater Sydney Region, Wollongong and the Illawarra Region, Newcastle and the Central Coast Lakes Region, Goulburn and the Southern Highlands Region. They have even been spotted as far south as Victoria, (especially those Ski Field gigs) and as far north as Byron Bay (especially those resort gigs), as far west as Wagga Wagga or Mudgee (especially those Winery gigs).
