Blake Noble Band

Yakima, WA | Australia

Originally from Australia, Blake Noble returns with his truly unique blend of roots/rock with glimpses of folk, funk and blues. A multi Instrumentalist, Blake combines ‘Percussive Fingerstyle’ guitar chops (think Andy Mckee meets John Butler), simultaneously with the deep drone of the ancient Australian Didgeridoo. Blake has continuously wowed crowds at Gentleman of the Road Tour Walla Walla, Chinook Fest, Yakima Roots & Vines, Elkfest, Summer Meltdown,toured many countries around the world, been featured on TV and radio, and has shared the stage with The John Butler Trio, Mike Love, Jon Gomm, John Popper, Lee Oskar, and many more. Blake will be performing with his full band (Joel Hoyer – Bass, Chris Lucier – Drums, plus special guest Matt Teske from Vaudeville Etiquette on Pedal Steel/Guitar.)

“The term ‘percussive guitar’ isn’t really strong enough for what Blake Noble does. … But since ‘attack guitar’ isn’t really a recognized genre and you’ve got to call it something, ‘percussive guitar’ will have to do. But this is not a guy doing a bit of strumming while keeping rhythm by hitting the guitar with his thumb. This is a guy playing his guitar like a drum-kit, and it sounds fantastic.” 

 Pat Muir, On Magazine

“…he weaves funk , blues and rock into songs, devouring influences for fuel. Blake plays the whole damn guitar too, bending notes until you’re sure a string will pop, tapping, hammering on, and bending the fretboard until you’re sure the neck will crack, and relentlessly drumming on the body of his guitar. Blake’s music has that good kind of unrefined, though, there is a subsistence—it surrounds you with sounds and knocks you down.”
