CHRIS RUSSELL’S CHICKEN WALK MARCH RESIDENCY EVERY SATDEE IN MARCH
For 2 1/2 years, Chicken Walk was just Chris, playing solo and electric. Doing this meant he could travel light and cheap, making a bigger name for himself in Mississippi than he did in Melbourne. Learning from living masters and sitting in with local players before becoming established and playing the Juke Joints with the likes of The Corn Lickers and Cameron Kimbrough. October 2011 was a break out month. Playing shows with highly regarded American band Old Gray Mule on their Australian tour and releasing his debut 7inch -"Don't Hook It To The Mule" on Cobra Snake Necktie Records. Chris joined by Dean Muller on drums in December 2011 to create a 2 piece that sound like a full band. With Dean, the Chicken Walk sound fills the room with hypnotic boogie that aims to bypass the mind and head straight for your ass. Endless, droning, head nodding blues - North Mississippi Hill Country style. Before he heads off for his annual pilgrimage to Mississippi, Chris plays four special Saturday afternoons in the front bar of The Tote Hotel. Some shows will be solo, some will be duo, some will have special guests. You’ll have to come each week to find out!
