Amnesia Blues Band are a traditional blues band, bringing you original blues with stories of hard drinkin' women, lost loves and broken dreams. No funk, no soul, no rock and roll - just blues and boogie all the way!

2016 saw the release of their debut album, 
"We Still Remember.” The new album, “Hailstone” was released on June 15th 2019.

The band have been finalists in the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society International Blues Challenge in 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019. In 2016 & 2019 the band were voted MBAS Vic/Tas Band Of The Year. 

The band are arguably the most successful blues band to come out of Gippsland for decades.

Paul "Buck" Buchanan
Acoustic Electric Guitar, Dobro, Vocals

Paul picked up the guitars again after several decades off and is now belting it out as the lead singer of Amnesia Blues. When Buck is singing, the PA is an optional extra.

Stuart Anderson

Stuart has been playing drums for 26 years, and has been in bands for 20 of them. He currently also plays in Songs202 and Simon & The GPettes.
Stu is recognised by his collection of home-made drums and Paisley shirts.

Salty Dennis Trevarthen

When the city-slicker and the country-bluesmen can get themselves in the same place at the same time, Salty Dawg joins the band on harp, adding to the music and the overcrowding on stage! He also runs the best blues podcast going around: 

Barry Walker

We’ll say it, even if Baz won’t: "Gippsland’s leading harmonica player" is THE MAN for our more Easterly gigs.

Ning Hopkins
Lead Guitar/Harmonica

ABB were a man down. Ning answered the call. He was so good, we asked our mothers if we could keep him.

Darryl Kerr
Bass Guitar

Darryl comes to ABB from the Blues Lizards, our brothers from the Latrobe Valley. Rock Solid! Took until August '18 for Sean Clohesy to get a picture of him!
