8 Ball Aitken's Home of Honk, Stomp, Aussie, Swamp Music!

8 Ball Aitken is the redneck preacher at the shotgun wedding between country and blues. It doesn't matter which part of the family you're from what does matter is the funky foot-stomping hullaballoo at the all-night party afterwards.Hailing from Far North Queensland, Australia (now Nashville based), he grew up as a teenager in a run-down tobacco shed, making a living picking tropical fruits by day and picking guitars by night. 8 Ball's first break came when he was hired to play nightly at the infamous Johno's Blues Bar in Cairns.
