Friday, 23rd February. Doors open 8pm. Tickets $20 Members, $25 Non-Members. This is a 15+ event. Dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the Hammond Organ, Lachy Doley is the most celebrated Blues Soul Rock Organ Player in the world today.
A player who can pump, pamper and occasionally pound the most unbelievable sounds from a keyboard: sounds that are intense, ferocious and sometimes transcendent.
Recently going viral on Facebook with videos clocking up millions of views. His version of the Bill Wither’s classic USE ME is now sitting at 1.7 MILLION Facebook views alone.
Lachy Doley has seen much of the world, recording and touring with acts as diverse as Powderfinger, Glenn Hughes, Steve Vai, Jimmy Barnes, The Beautiful Girls – more recently recording on a new album of Joe Bonamassa’s which came out in early 2015. It was 2010 though, that saw the birth of THE LACHY DOLEY GROUP and they have been heavily recording and touring ever since.
The group’s latest album LOVELIGHT (Jan 20 2017) is on track to surpass their previous album by debuting at #40 on the Australian National Charts the ARIAS, reaching #3 on the UK Blues Broadcasters Charts, #1 on the Australian iTunes Blues Charts and #1 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts.
