Jimi Beavis: “I may not be American, or descended from slaves, or have a working class man for a father, nor have I worked on a banana plantation, but I’ve got the blues so bad, that I’ve got to get it out there”!
“I have always loved music and sung and played music and for me, blues is where it’s at, especially when it comes to playing how you feel. I first picked up the harmonica after seeing local legend Mojo Webb play. I did my blues apprenticeship at the late Satchmo’s Bar in West End at the Monday jam nights”.
“I started my own band – Jimi Beavis and the 385s – in 2007 and we went on to win the Blues Association of South-East Queensland’s Performer of the Year in 2009. We played at Woodford Folk Festival, Sunshine Coast Blues Festival, Brisbane Blues Festival and the Australian Blues Festival in Goulburn before I changed to the current line-up. I am looking to go further back to the old school blues in a bid to move you in an authentic way – shake it!”
