brian el dorado

New Wildfire LP is out now.

Who: Brian El Dorado – Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Sean Newell – Drums, Adam Rudegeair – Hammond, Rhodes, Synth, Kumar Shome – Lead Guitar, Jamie Stroud – Bass, Lachie Mowat – Baritone Saxophone, Charlie Woods – Trumpet.

What: Blues / rock fusion

Where: Melbourne, Australia.

Why: Versatility my friends! Melbourne’s Brian El Dorado and The Tuesday People display versatility in abundance. Melding blues, funk, rock, soul, and smooth jazz on their sophomore album, the group have wisely and aptly named it Wildfire. They’ve also got an excellent sense of humour and don’t seem to take themselves too seriously.

The video for new track ‘Money To Burn’ is a case in point. It basically seems to consist of the band dressed up, rather rudimentally, as gangsters and fighting over a game of Monopoly. All the while a super bluesy track winds and meanders in the background as Brian El Dorado shows off his Mick Jagger inflected pipes.

Check it out below.
