Since forming in 2015, BB FACTORY has wowed audiences with their high energy, encore drawing performances including stand out performances at Blues On Broadbeach, Bellingen Bluesfest, Mitchell Creek Rock ’n’ Blues Fest, Bayside Bluesfest and many more.
A cracking live band with seasoned musos oozing from their ranks, playing original contemporary & progressive blues/roots interspersed with unique interpretation of old school classics, BB Factory released their debut full length all original album "First World Blues” in May 2018.
It follows an impressive track record in channeling sounds from the authentically classic and gritty side of blues, funk, rock and roll and gospel, with each single released reaching #1 on the iTunes Blues/Roots charts and the album debuting at #9 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Chart and remaining in the top 20 for six consecutive months.
USA frontman Harold Jackson is known as BB Factory’s “Toastmaster General”. Jackson is a natural singer able to transpose his voice from the soulful clean to the downright dirty blues shouting from the yesteryear.
Jackson’s vocals are matched with the blistering guitar work of Pedro Verhoeven, augmented with the tasty Hammond organ licks by Bruce Crouch, and driven by the band’s exemplary rhythm section, composed of bassist Craig Hamilton and drummer Cvitan Barac.
On October 11th. 2019 BB Factory released ‘Let The Good Times Roll (A Right Royal Tribute To The King Of The Blues)” recorded live at the Doo-Bop Bar on August 17th. The reception has been outstanding so far with the CD debuting at #5 in October ABARAC chart.
