CECIL B. FARDOULLI & The BIG BOO - " A Foot a'Tappin' Boogie "

Through a 'by chance' meeting in a local Melbourne music venue earlier 2015, Phill and Billy had a discussion about what they are most passionate, Blues and Music. Like two ships in the night, they were always crossing paths but never seemed to be in the same port together. They soon realised that they have been encompassing the same scenes for many years and knew a lot of the same people, friends and acquaintances. Eventually the conversation got around to laying down some music tracks from which this current release came to fruition. 

Recorded at Studio 52 in Abbottsford Victoria Australia, with well known producer/engineer Trevor Carter at the helm, the 6 track debut epCD - CECIL B. FARDOULLI & The BIG BOO - " A Foot a'Tappin' Boogie " was born and is available for purchase exclusively from this website HERE.

Apart from engagements with their respective bands, they are also available for bookings as an Acoustic Blues Duo.
