Guitar-pickin’ duo delivers full suite at two shows

THE fast, furious and passionate blues rock from Monster Guitars is back and ready to hit the Agnes Water Tavern on Saturday from 8pm and Calliope's Railway Hotel on Sunday from 4pm.

The Monster Guitars musical journey takes Adam Hole's Mississippi Delta acoustic blues into Mark Easton's electric power blues-rock, visiting Willie Dixon, Sonny Boy Williamson, then Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, White Stripes and now Monsters originals.

From some very fine guitar picking and sweet vocals among the gravel, tar and razor blades, this duo brings the action in every performance.

Adam Hole and Mark Easton are long-standing professional solo performers in their own right and happy circumstance brought them to thrash it out onstage, and find they create monster guitar music together.

2012 ARIA nominee Mark Easton's CD Grind charted nine months in the top 25 CDs on the Australian blues and roots airplay charts.

It still gets regular airplay.

This singer-songwriter-guitarist evokes a style that never goes out of favour, yet changes with every new CD - not just blues and rock.

Adam Hole is named one of Australia's leading solo blues guitarists in Chris Johnson's latest book Guitar - The Australian Story, alongside Jeff Lang, John Butler, Geoff Achison, Fiona Boyes, Ash Grunwald, Lloyd Spiegel and Mia Dyson.

Adam lets rip with high energy, raunchy slide guitar.

He plays like a wild man but never misses a beat nor a chance to invest utmost passion into old blues and rock originals alike.
