Shortly after being formed, the Lemon Squeezing' Daddies won the talent contest at the Australian Blues Festival in 2000.

They have since been nominated as the Best new Talent for the Chain Awards and have been finalists in the Sydney Blues Society's "Blues Performer of the Year".

Over the years, the band has played a large number of festivals, appearing at Narooma "Blues & Rockabilly Festival" (NSW), Thredbo Blues Festival (NSW), Blues at Bridgetown (WA), Blues at Broadbeach (Qld), Rockhampton "Big River Jazz" (Qld), "Mordiallic by the Sea" (Vic), "Mount Beauty Music Muster" (Vic), Canberra Blues Festival (ACT), Forth Valley Blues Festival (Tas) and Launceston Blues Festival (Tas) - just to name a few!

The remarkable Pearl Noire fronts the band these days - a larger than life personality with a sensational stage presence. The rest of the band are Ian Hollister (harps), Jonathan Simpkins (guitar), Pete O'Neill (upright bass) and Rob Floyd (drums).

Always entertaining, the band's focus is on on-stage fun as well as toe-tapping jump and swing blues.
