Backsliders are coming to MEMO for the first time after many sell out shows at the Renowned Caravan Music Club since it opened over 10 years ago.

This is their first Melbourne performance since 2019, with 35 years under their belt, the multi-award winning blues act,  return to Melbourne showcasing their latest album ‘Bonecrunch’, the 15th and most varied album to date.

Backsliders are renowned for energetic and captivating live shows and this promises to be just that. Celebrated slide guitarist and vocalist, Dom Turner, and drum and percussion virtuoso Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil) joined by blues harmonica great, Ian Collard are set to take you on an eclectic blues-music journey.

“in the hands of these vets the blues element isn’t staid, but is led down different, swampy paths to create something new and, indeed, hopeful” SMH 2020

“The fuzzy guitar and percussion, and warbling harp, are sublime” The Courier Mail 2020
