  The Tailgaters.

Kerry Norman               Lead Vocals
Adrian  Norman                        Guitar
Gerry Cowan                                 Bass
 Tony Eisentrager                        Drums

  The Tailgaters appear regularly at major festivals around  Queensland, and some of these include, The Gympie Muster,   Ladies sings the Blues festival, Brisbane Blues Festival, Nothin' but the Blues Festival,  Bucca Blues Festival,  Sunshine Coast festival of Blues.

At The Woodford Folk Festival,  lead vocalist Kerry Norman was introduced as " The Queen of Swamp Blues ".  The Tailgaters prefer to call it Swampabilly.

If you mixed Blues, Rock, Rockabilly, Funky Soul and Swingin'  Boogie, you'd probably be getting  close. It's surely toe tappin', goodtime, dancin' music, and The Tailgaters sure know how to play it.

They're also  the only Queensland Band to have their material used on the current releases of the acclaimed, " Real Australian Blues Volume 4" compilation and  " The Gympie Muster Blues Compilation ". These albums would probably be the two most acclaimed blues compilations in Australia.

The Tailgaters are reknowned for delivering the goods, and have supported some famous acts including Canned Heat, Rory McLoud, Kristina Olsen, Kevin Borich and Phil Manning.

Reviews.
Kerry Norman really impressed me with solid gutsy vocals that at times reminded me of Janis Joplin. The guitar playing of Adrian Norman was also as good as I have heard anywhere. Could make a $30 guitar sound like a $2000 one. The Tailgaters know how to blend in with any crowd ~ 
Real Feelgood.                                                          Yeppoon Blues Club

Kerry Norman sings with everything she's got and delivers the goods, while Adrian Norman is earning a reputation for his stinging guitar style, and 
the sound is magic. Once again The Tailgaters kicked the pants of the 
punters, and even those overseas tourists.    Steve Friend Sunshine Coast Daily

Described by one critic as musically and visually explosive, The 'Gaters are a young band pushing the boundaries of blues. Centred on the slinky blues seductress, Kerry Norman, the band have forged their reputation on a series of high energy performances They brought the house down when they opened the inaugural Bucca Blues Festival Adrian Normans' stinging guitar provides the counterpoint to Kerrys' passioncharged vocals. The band are also accomplished songwriters, supplementing their soulful r & b covers with a distinctive vibe of their own.

To describe The Tailgaters as solely a blues band is to do them a grave injustice. That label expresses nothing of their funky jazz soul grooves, nor does it hint at the power and impact of Kerry Normans' sultry vocals. Sure enough the fabric that holds these diverse elements together is blues, but add to the 12 bar the spice and fire of electric emotion and you have the magic carpet ride that is the Tailgaters. Don't expect a listless regurgitation of 20 golden hits. Cairns Post


 A swingin' swamp blues act                     Blues Association of  South East Qld

This locally based 4 piece band have been working extremely hard at building themselves a reputation in the Music Industry and for all accounts things are going their way.        The Delta Club. Sunshine Coast Queensland.
