Al Terry is an Australian blues frontman whose soulful vocals and harmonica instrumentals are delivered in the amplified harp tone of Chicago blues masters such as Big Walter Horton and Little Walter. He incorporates swinging West Coast Jump Blues and Rock & Roll into a night of high-energy, toe tapping up-tempo music; punctuated by some low-down, speak-easy Blues.
The Purple Haze Blues band is made up of Malaysian Blues legends from Blues Gang: ZZi Blues on Lead Guitar and Shaik Karim on Drums; they are joined by the solid talent of Shah Shariff on bass. The Purple Haze Blues Band has been rocking live venues throughout Malaysia for 20 years.
Al’s collaboration with Purple Haze stretches back 15 years. They’ll be performing songs from their recently released Album, combining influences such as Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, James Cotton, Kim Wilson, Charlie Musslewhite, Joe Filisko, James Harmon, Jay Geils Band, Big Joe Turner, as well as some of Al Terry’s own Blues.
