The Keller Sessions present Veronica’s Boyfriend – Laid back New Orleans style blues and their own alternative groove.
Jeff Prime – blues harp, lead guitar; Sandra Chambers – percussion; Shaun Andrews – vocals, guitar and Sarah Bloustein – violin.
Veronica’s Boyfriend were formed out of the fabulous Bear Busker Sunday afternoon sessions in Filthy McFadden’s (like so many Canberra bands).. We used to teasingly ask “who was Veronica’s Boyfriend?” on our gig posters. Veronica’s Boyfriend is not code for Victoria Bitter, or Vitamin B.
Veronica’s Boyfriend was named accidentally one hot summer’s night by some passing cyclists who, having heard us jamming, spoke along the following lines, while their gears clicked and clattered, their voices carrying high and far on the still night air.
“Did you hear that?”
“Yeah, there’s always nice live music coming out of that flat.”
“Yeah, I think its Veronica’s boyfriend.”
We actually met Veronica one night, as she kindly introduced herself after one of our gigs at the All Bar Nun. 🙂 She couldn’t believe we’d taken our name from an overheard conversation which incorrectly mentioned her and her boyfriend!
Free entry! So get on down to the Keller Room for a fabulous night of entertainment!
