Blues Boot Camp is very proud to be partnering with Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival again in 2019. We got off to a great start in 2018 with some great feedback about the program. We’re back in 2019 with tutors Andrea Robertson, Wayne Jury, and Buddy Knox. That’s 100 years of combined industry experience to call on.
Also a special guest mentor to be announced soon.

Blues Boot Camp is SO MUCH MORE THAN BLUES – Arguably the ‘blues form’ is the basis for all for styles of contemporary western music. Whether it is pop, rock, rap, hip-hop, jazz, soul, or funk, the roots are traced back to West African Tribal music. The communal, “call and response” influence of West African Tribal music is vast and significant. Blues Boot Camp explores the link from blues music to the music of today.

Through ‘Blues Boot Camp’ participants will gain a basic understanding of the mechanics of the blues and gospel forms of music as well as practical ways to apply this knowledge to modern music.

Blues Boot Camp is a team sport! Apart from musicianship, teamwork, and cooperation to achieve the final outcome of a public concert, we deal with many aspects of the music industry including health and safety, social media, getting gigs and building your own music community.

 “It was an absolutely amazing experience for my son Ciarab and he musically improved and gained so much inspiration from his time there. Thank you so much for creating such an amazing experience for the kids”.
-    Shelley, 2019

“Just want to pass on another big thank you for a terrific Bootcamp. Valentin my son went in excited at the opportunity to sample and learn from the world of the professional musician. He nevertheless had some concern about his playing abilities and if they would be sufficient to fully take advantage of the Bootcamp. His concerns were unjustified and that’s testimony to you and your tutors’ ability to tap into the participants and get them performing whatever their ability.”
-    Roberto, 2019
