Gon’ Boogaloo at the Milton Theatre

Following on from his wildly successful national tour and the release of his much-lauded new album Gon’ Boogaloo, CW Stoneking is all set to bring his tunes to the Milton Theatre’ February 6, 2015.

Gon’ Booglaoo released on October 17th, 2014, has been praised by critics as –

“A masterpiece.” The Saturday Paper

“The most joyously primitive album you’ll hear all year, and the most authentic.” Stack Magazine

“Guaranteed to have bare feet slapping the bar-room floor” The Age (4 stars)

“A raucous party album… a total joy to listen to.” Speaker TV (9/10 stars)

Gone are the sepia-toned tales of marooned adventures in the tropics of his last release, the ARIA Award winning Jungle Blues, this time replaced with the latest invention in the world of C.W. Stoneking, electricity! C.W. has stashed his afore-favoured vintage National guitar and banjo combo for a shiny gold Fender and an extra large helping of rock ‘n’ gospel dancehall blues to deliver 12 tracks recorded directly to tape with his full band, his very own hokum wall of sound.

Don’t miss your chance to catch this enigmatic and charismatic performer live!
CW Stoneking at the Milton Theatre – Fri Feb 6.  Tickets $40
