Peaches & The Alphasonics
Peaches & The Alphasonics are resurrecting the up-tempo, swinging jump blues sounds of the 40s and 50s. Imagine the growl of Etta James with the sass of LaVern Baker, backed by the guitar styling of Johnny Guitar Watson with the good-time rhythm from a doghouse bass and drums.
Based in Brisbane, Peaches & The Alphasonics have burst onto the rockin’ scene in Australia with passion and enthusiasm and are attracting a strong following of fans who are hep to their authentic vintage sound.
The Alphasonics feature lead guitarist, Paul Renton, a blues musician noted for his work with Morninside Fats, Trevor Gollagher previously of Lil Fi and the Delta Rhythm Kings, plus Paulie Burke (The Hi Boys, The Ten Fours) on slap bass. The band is lead by Lisl Chester, who as Peaches, brings you taste for Americana and rhythm’n’blues.
