with a residency at Bennelong at the Opera House, festivals all over Australia including St Kilda
Festival, Darling Harbour Jazz Festival, Vibes on a Summers Day and the Playground Weekender
2009. Residencies Thursdays at the Slip Inn and Sundays at the Home Bar has really developed
the band into something unique to the with the release of “Blue Rhythm People” a new album
(the 5th) of original material featuring Evelyn Duprai on vocals and the wicked beats of Ian
Mussington on Drums. Sold out gigs at the Basement in Sydney, featured spots at the Darling
Harbour Jazz Festival, and the release of “Blue Rhythm People” late 2010 have propelled this
band well into the new decade. Eon Beats now regularly performs with 8 or 9 musicians onstage featuring
Percussion, DJ, and Horn section.
