12:00noon – 1:15pm, Saturday 3 November, Blues stage

Great Ocean-based Tank Dilemma brings funky, swinging R’n’B, with piano at the fore. Featuring honking sax over a super-tight rhythm section, the act draw from their 3 LP’s – Inner Soul, Alright Already! and Having Said That and Let Me Say This.

Joining pianist, vocalist & writer Richard ‘Tank’ Tankard (Albert Lee, Broderick Smith, Souldiggers) are Matt Hewson (Matt Hewson Quartet) on tenor sax, Ruben Shannon (Archie Roach, Shane Howard, EBC) on bass and Brenton Smith (Tom Richardson Project) on drums.

“.. if you like your music funky, soulful, freaky with a healthy sense of humour this is it. What a triumph. An outrageously great album, I love it…” – Geoff Achison.

“…all killer, no filler” – MBAS

“The band always sounds great. Tank never fails to inspire.” – Derek Guille
