Sam and the 78s present a powerful, professional, blues and pop experience for Hobart audiences.  Formed in 2021, they have become regulars at popular Hobart venues such as at the Salty Dog  Hotel, The Republic Bar, and The Mayfair. Sam and the 78s are fronted by the smoky voiced  Samantha, whose performances have drawn comparisons to Beth Hart and Bonnie Raitt. Sam  is supported by a rhythmic and expressive backing band who use their well rehearsed song  structures as a basis for creative improvisation. Composed of keyboard, guitar, bass, and  drums, the band use their solid foundation in modern electric blues to skilfully blend the  genre with pop, jazz, funk, soul, and rock‘n’roll. Sam and the 78s receive rave reviews from venues  and audiences alike, and are equally comfortable delivering swaggering blues rock or gentle  ballads depending on the preference of the audience and the venue.
