To say that it has been challenging to bring the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues to fruition this year will be news to no one. The Festival format and program have been reimagined and rebuilt many times, and scores of exciting projects and collaborations have been born, nurtured, and regrettably, shelved.? 
Despite these hurdles, the co-artistic directors have arrived at an online program that celebrates the Festival’s unique identity and its contribution to the Australian jazz & Blues community over the last thirty years.? 
To successfully bring together a vibrant program, the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues have thought outside of the box and the state of Victoria, collaborating with the Governor Hindmarsh Hotel in to host a night of world-class blues and roots performances from The Streamliners, Lazy Eye, and Kings & Associates on Friday 30 October.  
Think B.B. King sharing a scotch with Booker T at the crossroads?after midnight and you’ll get close to the vibe that LAZY EYE brings to the stage. What started as a hair-brained?idea between friends medicating their way?through jazz school over a bottle of red, has?taken them on an adventure that spans the globe. A multitude of gongs suggests Lazy?Eye deliver some of the best original blues Australia has to offer. 
THE STREAMLINERS are hailed as one of the best-kept secrets and premier R&B bands from South?Australia. They’ve won countless awards?over the years and backed up many international artists such as Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, Holmes?Brothers, Albert King, Charlie Musselwhite, The Fabulous T-Birds, Joe Loius Walker and were?Muddy?Waters' son Mud Morganfield touring band at the 2017 Byron Bay BLUESFEST.? 
Led by husband- and-wife duo of singer and lyricist Anjii and songwriter and bassist Steve Portolesi, KINGS & ASSOCIATES is an award-winning group that threads blues, soul, funk, R&B, and gospel together in an eight-track vinyl patchwork stitched tight by live virtuosity and thought-provoking vulnerability.  
Each of these bands alone commands a headline performance, so to have all three on stage at one huge event is a treat for music lovers.  
Their performances will be captured live on stage at The Gov on Friday 30 October and then included as part of the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues online program on Saturday 31 and Sunday 1 November.?
