Welcome to this edition of the KB Boogie News 

Hi Blogger, I hope all is well with you and yours !

It’s like we’re in that movie I saw once, I think Dustin Hoffman was in it fighting to save 
the world from a Pandemic, very weird.

“What do you say to Break the Ice, I know its happened to me more than twice”

Oh !!... that b the opening chorus line  to my "Call a Friend” song I  released  featuring Russell 
Morris singing tag team style with me, and a wow, I heard it on Brisbane's ABC radio the other day while driving. … So I ask have you heard it on some station anywhere??.. would be nice to know, when, where & what station please, that will show me the ones that support my music.

Well….. the ice has melted now, we're playing a DRIVE -IN Concert  at our local Maleny Show Grounds on the 18th of July.
     
They’ll have a huge screen and the sound will be sent to the Car's radio’s,  so we’re really looking forward to having a play at last. There will be 4 bands starting at 5pm till 9 -Vix & The  Hot Chicks - The Spirit Blues Band - Accidentally on Purpose and us, The Kevin Borich Express!!
      
If you are in Queensland or northern NSW it’s going to be a unique experience, I remember going to the drive in movies a couple of times way back, we never had them in NZ.

Ticket link is - ticketebo.com.au/winterblues 
       
I’ve been doing some streaming on Face Book to keep my musical ball bouncing and to see how 
it goes,  I did a couple that you can still see on FB, doing another on a Sunday in a couple of weeks.

Had great response and they went really well with  thousands of  watchers, some asking 
questions that I answered - the internet dropped out in the second one and we had to
wait till it hooked up again.. funny as!… All due to our snail pace internet up here.

Thanks to those who have been buying stuff off of my www.kevinborich.com.au shop. 
That's been most helpful as it looks like live event entertainment will be the last they unlock-down.

Oh yes I must ask again if you haven’t already >> Please ?? subscribe to my YouTube channel!!!! Here - KB YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/kevinborichI need a thousand to get it up and running properly, spread the word please.

Here some good info - https://planetofthehumans.com  re the bio industries what an eyeopener this is!!

Cheers Kevin

Borich X Borich + Brus Double CD and DVD combined     AUD40.00

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

PS.
I found some in depth info re the Corona Virus via "The Epoch Times" news paper which was founded in the USA in 2000 by some Chinese people who had fled communism, seeking to create an independent truthful uncensored media view on what really happens over there. it is long, but a very comprehensive view that is very worth viewing.

Express News November 2019 News

      Visit KB's Online Store                       News and Blues 04 November 2019

 

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 >

      Visit KB's Online Store                                              News and Blues 12 June 2019

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
