Hi Blogger, I hope your world is going well.

I hope all is well with you in these very trying times where a lot of us are facing, or have faced, the fire factor all over Australia…….. my Condolences to you if you have suffered in anyway, we have been Lucky so far here in our bush setting, dry as as…. watering my fruit trees by hand with the hose like a military nurse.

I’m playing a rare Solo show January Friday 17th with my special guest the amazing Adrian Keating on Violin. He is a master and leads The Sydney Lyric Orchestra for the annual “All you Need is Love” Beatles concert in January at the Sydney Opera House. He also plays with Geoff Achison and has worked with Jimmy Barnes, Grinspoon, The Hoodoo Gurus to name a few. 

I’ll be in Solo mode with Adrian improvising with me as we free fly our way through different and some new material, so it will bea lot of  "seat of pants fun!!"

My Son Lucius had some time off from touring with the Band COG back in 2007 so we thought it would be great to do a show together, with our old friend Harry Brus on Bass at Sydney’s Basement Club.

Lucius has grown up hearing my songs, so it was easy to get together and have a blast with a lot of musician friends there to witness it – thanks guys! [Look out for Rose Tattoo lads Angry Anderson's head and Mick Cox's nose in the shadows]

Unbeknown to me, Clayton Doley was there playing with Alien Zoo, opening the night – so I invited him to Jam - we quickly talked through a couple of songs -- and he was fantastic! – as Doley’s are!!

THEN ! Another complete surprise to me was Leo Sayer getting up with us. Harry plays with Leo and invited him up on stage. What a great way to meet a great artist!! I hope you enjoy the show – We sure did!! Love n Cheers Kevin

Welcome to this edition of the KB Boogie News 


Hello Blogger, I  hope all is good in your hood.

There’s a few exciting things about to happen.

In three weeks or so I’ll be releasing my “Call a Friend” song, it's the one I asked Russell Morris to sing with mien tag team style, he said “Sure thing Kev”. 

So Nick (my producer) & I went to his place and within a couple of hours he’d done a great vocal.

It's kinda about how some friends that you used to see quite a bit of in the past have faded off your radar and you’re thinking about calling them to see how they’re going.

Also I’ve had quite a few roadies over time who are now hitting very hard times due to the demise of the live music scene, now accelerated by the relatively new lockout laws. Of course, this is in the Mental health domain which is also affecting many of our farmers terribly. It these situations a call from a friend can help them cope. People in both of these occupations are now known to have taken their own lives.

Then there are also people who suffer depression who need a call from a friend – or someone.

The song is a reminder that real personal communication from others is essential for all of us.

Hello Blogger, hope your having a great day.

Welcome to this edition of the KB Boogie News 


I hope all is well.

A quick note as we’re about to board a plane that’ll take us on our long time coming holiday to the UK and Europe. It was planned years ago but feels like it was just yesterday’s decision as time flies

Regarding my album in the making,  the latest addition to the fold is lovely Suze DeMachi recording a rousing high octane vocal on my song “Wrapped in Rock” done in a tag team mix. Thanks to her willingness to take part we have another great track to add to the collection so far setting the bar high again.
 
The other Great news is my amazing wife Melissa has just released a 3 month online  programme for women, of all  ages. A labour of love and compiled over her many years of teaching Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation. Suitable for the beginner to the experienced. If you are keen,  take a look at the link attached https://www.melissashealingspace.com/inner-beauty/ you don’t know how good it is unless you give it  a try!

When we get back my first show will be at The George Harcourt Inn which is the Red White Amber & Blues 2 day festival Featuring Chain Russell Morris Bondi Cigars and many more, Book at Georgetix.com.

Then is Noosa Surf Club on the 2nd of November  where we do two sets, spread the word for us.

Then on November 30th its my famously loved Sydney Harbour Cruise where we play for you as we choof around the Best Harbour in the World taking in all the iconic sights at night… Wonderful.

Round up your crew and Get you tickets >

Welcome to this edition of the KB Boogie News 


Hello Blogger, Well it’s time to get your Tickets for my annual Sydney Harbour Cruise for Saturday 30th of November 2019!!!

I’ve been doing them for over 18 years now or there about’s, and they always pack out with people religiously coming back each year because the valued experience of a night out on the Best Harbour in the world, where you can witness the amazing vista while we venture to all of the best sights and iconic places eg... the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge etc. and all from different angles so you’ll be shooting  off photo’s at a great rate.

And of course, all to the soundtrack of “FunkingRockingblues” provided by me and my Kevin Borich Express

We play two sets, the first 1 hour is acoustic that starts low key and builds to an up tempo energy, I call it “The foreplay set!!”  After a 20 minute break for a drink  plus me selling my mercho of CD’s DVD’s + T shirt’s, signing them and chatting to those who’d like, we venture into the Electric set that ends up turbo charged to the end with everyone wrapped in Rock n Funkin' Blues having a ball.

We’ll be playing some  new songs for you to see if you like them Plus older favourites which is a must do.

There is only finger food provided so don’t come on empty if you’re going to drink, a full Bar is on board and the house rule is no BYO.

So round up some friends and make it a party for your own crew, and by all means, spread the word, shout it out and prepare to Rock-Socks in more ways than one.

I’ll see you smiling on Board for extreme Fun!!

Cheers n Love Kevin

Hello Blogger, hope your having a great day.

Welcome to this edition of the KB Boogie News 


Just a short note to connect, and yes, to put a smile on your face.
Go on... give me one .. ya!! – see, you feel better already.

Things have been a bit slow gig wise, so I've been doing a lot of heave-Hoe work around the house, keeping the bush at bay. it’s always creeping in on us so I have to grab my trusty “Farm Boss” chain saw and repel the intruders to keep the firebreak clear.
 
Clearing the first veggie patch I made years back was a 3 day affair, being totally overgrown and what a workout it was. My medals for a great job were two ticks, one behind my ear,  the other in my bum.
Being home alone that day, I came up with a new Yoga position to kill that bugger’er  with that trusty “Tick Off” medi Freeze applicator & a pair of tweezers.
 
So, standing naked, right leg up on the bath edge, magnifying mirror in left hand ,da Freeze bomb in the other, I spied him, arse up enjoying a feast at my expense.
You know,….-  when you are being guided by looking into a mirror, is so like backing a trailer. Kind’a like you have to ignore the logical and do the opposite.
 
Three squirts of the Bomb and he was in Antarctica, and out via tweezer bouncer.
 
I’m still a bit deaf…er from the swelling of the other bugger who was feasting behind  my right ear. Last night while recording in the studio the right side of my head phone’s were much quieter than usual.
 
We have 15 new songs in the bake and I’m very pleased with their outcomes.
Nick my Producer & Logic wiz are enjoying ourselves + having Jon  Carson (drums), Chris  Gilbert (Bass) come and play, as well as Lucius Borich (Drums) & Paris McCloud (Piano), we have a real sonic feast in the waiting for you.
 
So Bye for now.
Cheers n Love Kevin
