After the successful recent release of their Album, The Wages of Sin, Mama Red & the Dark Blues are back at the Ellington, but get in quick as the last show sold out in advance and space is limited!
Tickets available through the Ellington website here...
The Wages of Sin boasts some stellar compositions and works its way from a stripped back, emotionally raw a ‘Capella sound, to rocking roots and country harmonies.
Featuring Harry Deluxe – a lead vocalist who can simply blow the speakers – a posse of the State’s most talented musicians and some seriously sexy harmonies behind her – Mama Red & The Dark Blues deserve your undivided attention. And beware… if you don’t give it, you may have it taken from you by force.
What people are saying about Mama Red & the Dark Blues:
“The arrangements were excellent whether they were originals or covers. Mama Red’s delivery covered gutsy blues to country to pop with a touch of gospel with ease.
The crowd left supremely satisfied, eagerly awaiting the chance to download songs soon and perhaps purchase a limited vinyl edition of Wages of Sin hopefully out by Christmas.” Read full article…

David Cusworth – The West Australian
“Harry Deluxe, took her audience from raw and sultry, to harmonious and sweet, with the assistance of an incredibly talented set of musicians – the Dark Blues.
The two hour launch dipped into all kinds of emotions and situations, and yes, the vocals only and torch songs were gutsy and brilliant, but I do love a ripping break up song and Come By Sunday is one of those songs you’re still toe tapping to on the way home in the car.” Read full article…
