Marshall O’Kell Band – Free Festival Show
The Sunshine Rock & Blues Festival will be held on the weekend of Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June 2018. An exciting three day celebration of Australian music, featuring national recording and touring artists, the kind of event which has never before been held in a Sunshine Coast venue.
Marshall O’Kell Band plays a FREE SHOW on Day One of the Sunshine Rock & Blues Festival here at the Caloundra RSL. Set to perform at 9.30pm, you’ll find them rockin’ the Main Stage.
HERE COMES MARSHALL OKELL….
“Love that slide playing.” – Chris Scaddan – TRIPLE J
Psychic or sceptic, you’d be forgiven for thinking that a man born under a full moon, on a Good Friday the 13th, must have ‘something‘ to answer for? Well Marshall Okell is certainly up to ‘something‘. As his timely arrival into the world set precedent, there’s certainly nothing ‘ordinary‘ about it.
Aptly named after two of music’s greatest rock/bluesmen (Jimi ‘Marshall’ Hendrix and Johnny ‘Dawson’ Winter) Marshall Dawson Okell was born on April 13th, 1979, into a Rock n Roll arena, with a guitar case for a crib.
Be warned. Marshall has emerged with a new level of addictive, heart and mind altering musical energy. This guy doesn’t just make music. He’s a roaring powerhouse of a man, and his tracks will get under your skin, into your blood and course through you like a visceral super-high of the likes you won’t come down from easily.
