8 Ball Aitken - Ice Cream Man Album Launch at The Lounge (Royal Hotel) (Nundah, QLD) on Saturday, 5 June 2021
Join the 8 Ball Aitken Band for the official ‘Ice Cream Man’ album launch show on Saturday June 5 at the Royal Hotel, Nundah. The band will play the entire new record track by track and share some stories behind the music.

This is a one-off special night of ‘cool licks’ to celebrate ‘Ice Cream Man’ coming out of the freezer. The title track debuted at #1 on the AMRAP charts, and #4 on the Australian Blues Charts. 8 Ball Aitken recently returned to Australia from Nashville (where he recorded three new albums from home during 2020). 8 Ball's touring Australia for the rest of the year.

"8 Ball Aitken demonstrates that the blues are alive and well Down Under with this deep-in-the-pocket collection of modern blues and blues rock that’s built atop a swamp blues structure" - Chicago Blues Guide

“For a guy from Australia, 8 Ball Aitken really has the Delta in his bones… I wouldn’t be surprised to find Mississippi mud on the soles of his shoes.” - Gonzo Okanagan

"A lovely, enjoyable collection, start to finish, with the inevitable few songs that stand out, and invite you to hit the replay. Blues In Britain" – Graham Munn

“A mixture of balladry, wordplay, and cutting edge guitar, Swamp Blues 2 from 8 Ball Aitken deserves to be in everyone’s collection.” American Blues Scene "Swamp Blues 2 is masterfully crafted, and indeed a wonderful listen.

" Philly Cheeze’s Rock & Blues Reviews "I first saw him when he was young, hairy and straight outa Brisbane. Now he’s all growed up and going global. Unstoppable!” Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool, Eagle Rock), Melbourne, Australia

"8 Ball is not an act any band wants to follow! ....even a 5 piece band will have to do some quick and serious note pounding to get 8-ball's vibe off the stage, it just hangs in the air long after he is gone.....he's a freakin solo red headed infector...!" Mitch Lind, owner/promoter of the Riverhawk and Stringbreak Music Festivals, Florida, USA

“This is outstanding. The way it should be done. You have a new fan.” Ray Wylie Hubbard (Snake Farm), Texas, USA
