Settle in to Rocks Underground, with Geelong’s patriarch of the Blues: Wayne Jury. Our Friday night special menu is available, $45 for 2 courses and a glass of selected wine with $5.00 from each dinner booking will be donated back to Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival.
Not dining? That’s OK, pop in and enjoy a funky beverage while listening to some funky tunes.
Wayne Jury is more than blues. Recognized as a multi-talented tunesmith (signed as ‘House Writer’ and artist to the legendary J Albert and Son Publishing, home of ACDC, Rose Tattoo, Easybeats since 1994.) His versatility as a performer sees him at ease with ensembles or solo, delving deep into soul, jazz, and rock to combine these genres with his distinctive voice, style, and performance.
Fronting rock bands across Australia since he was 16 he’s been called on by some of Australia’s most iconic bands to front their gigs when they’ve been missing a lead singer. His initiation into the world of music began in Geelong supporting Australia’s finest touring bands (AC/DC, Ayres Rock, Little River Band, Buffalo, Cold Chisel, Dragon, to name but a few). Since then he has played thousands of gigs all over Australia, including opening for blues greats Robert Cray, Albert Collins, Canned Heat, BB King, Chris Cain, and Buddy Guy.
