Event Description

Geoff Achison & the Soul Diggers

Doors at 7:15.  Show at 8:30. Join us for dinner & cocktails!

Geoff Achison is an award-winning blues-roots artist from Australia known for his energetic live performances and unique guitar mastery.  Geoff began his apprenticeship with legendary Australian bluesman 'Dutch' Tilders establishing himself as a fine lead guitarist before striking out with his own. He released his debut album in the early 90s and began touring throughout the USA, UK & Europe.  Geoff's music has been compared favorably to major artists such as Eric Clapton, JJ Cale and the Allman Brothers Band having a solid foundation in the blues but also embracing a variety of music styles. His songwriting is original and thoughtful with a wry sense of humour reminiscent at times of Randy Newman, Dr John and Mose Allison. He has won awards for his guitar playing, songwriting and live performances and was honoured in 2011 as official Patron Of the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society. 
 

 

TYPES OF TICKETS

GENERAL ADMISSION

There are no bad views of our stage at The Vista, even if you are standing!  Often these are the best tickets if you want to be up close and personal with your favorite artist.  Be aware that holders of Standing Room -  Main Floor tickets have not purchased a seat and are not guaranteed a seat. This means that for sold out shows, holders of these tickets will likely be standing. If you want to assure the exclusivity and comfort of a reserved table at a show that is likely to sell out, we recommend purchasing a Reserved Table. 

RESERVED TABLES

Don’t like standing or bumping elbows, or maybe you want to take the worry out of fighting traffic to be early to get a table? Exclusivity may be for you! Reserved Table tickets provide ticket holders the option to have a table saved for you. When the doors open to our venue, your reserved table will be waiting for you. Please note, Reserved Table tickets must be purchased in groups of 4 or 6, as there are 4 or 6 seats per table. 

Food menu and full bar service available.  Outside food and drink may not be brought into the Vista Room.  

Please call us at 404-321-5000 for any questions before the show.

 

I bought 2 tables, can I get them together? Or can I put my table together with my friend's table?

Whenever we see names with 2 table purchases, we automatically put them together.  If you have friends or family going to the show, let us know by emailing eve@thevistaroom.com and we will do our best to make sure you are near/by each other.

Can I choose or switch my table upon arrival?

In order to be fair, the tables are chosen in the order in which they were purchased from the front of the stage to the back of the room, so get your tables early!  If you would prefer a table in the back, please email eve@thevistaroom.com.  If you need a low table, we must know that ahead of time.  Please email eve@thevistaroom.com if you need a low top or have any particular needs, and we will do our very best to meet them.  

What kind of food do you have?

We serve the entire Napoleon's menu for every show unless specified otherwise.  Please feel free to check out the menu page on Napoleon's or here on the vista room site.

Geoff Achison and the Souldiggers (Blues/Funk-Jam, Melbourne, Australia)

New CD Another Mile, Another Minute

Winner of FIVE 2017 Australian Blues Music Awards

Equal parts New Orleans Funk, driving Blues, jazzy Soul and outback Mojo, this is southern blues/roots music from deep south Australia.  Geoff Achison invokes the spirit of the great blues & soul artists to create his engaging original sound.  His unique blend of “Bluesic” has created scores of devoted fans around the world.   He’s been chosen one of the “Top Ten Hottest New Guitarists” by Guitar Player Magazine followed with making the “Top 100+ Guitarists You Should Know” roster.  In 2012 Geoff was listed as one of the “Top 50 Australian Guitarists of All Time.”  He’s been a 17 year Guest Guitar Instructor at Jorma Kaukonen's (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane) Fur Peace Guitar Ranch and an exciting festival favorite featured on PBSNPR, the BBC and CNN.   His frequent tours of the US have seen him playing with folks like The Allman Brothers, George Porter, Jr., Wood Brothers, Col. Bruce Hampton, Randall Bramblett, Delbert McClinton, John Mayer, and many others.

“Achison seems more like a singer/songwriter’s soul in Jeff Beck’s body.  He should take his stature in the musical community to the next level with this disc.”  Elmore Magazine

Geoff is one of the finest blues guitarists I know with a completely individual style.  I have never seen anyone play quite like him.”  Jorma Kaukonen, Hot Tuna
