House of Blues - Jam Night

ROD PAINE & THE FULLTIME LOVERSTuesday 6th December 2022

Feature act: ROD PAINE & THE FULLTIME LOVERS

ROD PAINE & THE FULLTIME LOVERS cook up a stew based upon the dirty electric Blues, Roots and R&B of the early sixties but with splashes of Country balladry, Gospel, Americana and Rock n Roll, you get the full flavour. A popular mainstay of the local scene plus a sought-after, crowd-pleasing headliner at festivals and events from their home base of Melbourne, Victoria, this act is not to be missed.

Out front on vocals and harmonica, the charismatic Rod Paine is a stylish showman with one of the most soulful and inspiring voices in this land. Charming audiences for over 30 years, he has walked the stages throughout the country delivering a sound somewhere between Muscle Shoals and mid-sixties electric Blues. Add the broken-up harp sound emanating from his little 40-year-old amp, and he is hard to draw a comparison with.

Ray Tully and Tony Harwood form a dynamic rhythm section that is the backbone of the act. Performing together for over 34 years, this tight unit has graced various line-ups such as The Sensational Rocket 88’s, The Redliners, The Detonators and Straight 8’s to name just a few.

In 2014, the Fulltime Lovers welcomed the extraordinary Co Tipping to take over guitar duties, wielding the Fender Stratocaster in a way very few can. This important inclusion signalled a shift in the band’s sound and an extension of its broad appeal. The most recent addition of Michael Shannon on Hammond organ has added colour and depth to the repertoire, where his incredible musical knowledge shows through.

In 2013, Rod Paine & the Fulltime Lovers won the prestigious MBAS Blues Performer of the Year Award. They subsequently represented the MBAS in 2014 at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis USA, where they competed with the world’s best to impress an international audience.
