Multi-award winning Melbourne-based band Blue Eyes Cry joined forces with Adelaide’s Lazy Eye when ARBA presented another ‘Live at St. Lukes’ special.
Lazy Eye kicked off the show with stripped-down acoustic versions of their blues, performing songs from their new EP ‘Running Blind’. Mario brought out his 'suitcase kit' and brushes and it was good to hear Erica on acoustic guitar and to enjoy Evan on guitar, harp and vocals.
Lazy Eye then re-grouped for their electric set, Leslies spinning, and Bess The Hammond Organ swirling, a tight and driving set, proof of their ongoing hard work on the road.
On tour and promoting their second album 'Pull Me In', we were privileged to see Blues Eye Cry at their only appearance in Adelaide. The group impressed with a slick, funky blues set with great stage presence and powerful vocals by the lovely Isuela Hingano.
Having shared the stage at various festivals across the country, the mateship between the two bands was obvious and extended to their musicianship when they combined for an engaging closing jam, a highlight being Evan getting down and dirty to pump the organ pedals with his hands.
The performances brought plaudits from the sizeable crowd, as did the welcome variety of pizzas served from the kitchen.
