Event Details

Come see 8 Ball Aitken Live at the Oaks!

Saturday 27th March - 7:30pm

Fully seated 18+ show.


For more than a decade, blues-rocker 8 Ball Aitken has toured the world - performing his swampy, slide guitar-driven songs at more than 200 gigs each year. His live shows have rocked music festivals across the US, Australia, Europe, Canada, and Asia.

Since relocating to Nashville eight years ago from his native Australia, he has honed his songwriting, guitar playing and showmanship with some of the best in the business today. With his 11th album, Swamp Blues 2, 8 Ball delves deeper into the Delta. It’s a groove-heavy, funkier follow-up to the success of last year’s Swamp Blues album release that hit #2 in the Australian Blues Charts and produced the 2019 APRA Song of the Year Shortlisted “High Water.” Swamp Blues 2 features 13 tracks with all the energy of his live performances.

8 Ball co-produced the record at yellow DOG Studios in Wimberley, Texas, and it features the powerhouse rhythm section of legendary drummer JJ Johnson (Tedeschi Trucks Band/John Mayer) and Austin bass player extraordinaire Glenn Fukunaga (Robert Plant, Dr John, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Dixie Chicks).
8 Ball’s friend Buddy Leach (member of George Thorogood & the Destroyers) guested on saxophone and keys. The album reached #2 in the Australian Blues Charts in March, 2020.
