The last 10 years, 2009 to 2019.
The last ten years have been significant for Gerry Joe Weise.
The year 2009 saw his new opus "Blues Down Under", which met with critical success, that led to numerous tours of the USA and Europe.
In 2010 he opened for Robert Cray and Buddy Guy in the USA, and added to the European and USA tours: Hawaii, Polynesia, Fiji, Tahiti, Poland, North Africa and New Zealand.
2011 saw the "Live Blues World Tour" album with live recordings from the previous year's touring of the North and South Pacific, USA, Europe and Africa. Also in that year was released the single "Blues For Gary Moore" which has become Weise's most popular downloaded song.
The year 2012 had again tours of the USA and Europe, while adding to that year's tour list; Russia, Lithuania and Belarus. During the same year, the definitive Gerry Joe Weise live album "Live and Proud", a compilation of his best live tracks appeared, which was well received by the critics.
All of 2013 was devoted entirely to touring Western and Eastern Europe including Russia, Scandinavia, and around the Mediterranean Sea on the islands of Sardinia and Corsica; while preparing for the following year's album release.
That brings us up to 2014, with the release of "Stormy Sydney, 20th Anniversary", celebrating 20 years as a solo recording artist, representing twelve of his finest songs, and Weise's most popular album to date. After the February album launch, he embarked on a tour of Vietnam, Australia including the Broadbeach Blues Festival QLD, on a USA tour culminating at the Gardenstock Festival with band member Juma Sultan (ex Jimi Hendrix, Woodstock 69) in Dixon IL. A stopover in Fiji, over to Europe organized by Sony, then back to Australia again.
The main 2015 festival with Juma Sultan on percussion, was at Sunshine's Ride and Awareness event, Warehouse 66, Kernersville, North Carolina USA.
The album "Blues Gone Wild", was released worldwide in April 2016. 12 songs (including 3 songs in concert), with 28 musicians featuring Juma Sultan on percussion. Recorded in the USA, Australia, France, Switzerland, by Blues Breaking Records USA. The album was voted number 1 Best Australian Blues Rock Album by the Australian Blues Rock Magazine website, both from the Critic's Choice and the Reader's Selection. The 2016 single with Weise's classical music composition "Blue Concerto for Orchestra, Slide Guitar and Violin", where he performs slide guitar, violin and piano, was recorded with the St Peters Orchestra and Choir in Sydney.
In July 2017, the live album titled "Laon Blues Festival" was released, it was recorded in concert at the Maison des Arts et Loisirs, in Laon, France. In September 2017, they were one of the headlining bands along with legendary Chain, at the Mitchell Creek Rock 'n' Blues Festival, in Queensland, Australia.
2018 has been a busy year with the new album "Live and Lost in the Netherlands", and the single EP release "Manic Depression (Jimi Tribe); the latter was mixed and mastered at the celebrated Electric Lady Studios in NYC (of Jimi Hendrix fame). The single and album, have both received popular radio airplay in Australia and abroad. The Gerry Joe Weise Blues Band toured New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory, and South Australia. They played prestigious Australian venues like the National Press Club of Australia in Canberra, and Lizotte's in Newcastle. They were headliners at several festivals in New South Wales and Queensland. In September, Matt Taylor of Chain joined them on stage, for a memorable jam session at the Mitchell Creek Rock 'N' Blues Festival on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia. In December, Gerry Joe embarked on another World Tour with the SONY XMAS TOUR 2018, taking him from Australia, to Spain, France, Germany, Russia, the USA, then back to Australia again.,%20Australian%20Blues%20Rock%20Website,%20May%202016.JPG
2016 Blues Gone Wild : Voted number 1 Best Australian Blues Rock Album 
by the Australian Blues Rock Website. Hailing from Sydney, Gerry Joe Weise has released his new opus "Blues Gone Wild", on the Blues Breaking Records label in Chicago. Weise has to be one of the better outstanding Australian guitarists, (he has been voted four times Best Electric Blues Guitarist on the charts)! The opening track "Surfing Coffs Harbour" is a new type of blues that sets the pace for this adventurous album, with extraordinary innovative slide playing (Weise calls it 'glissando overtones'), and at times sounds uncannily like a flute than a guitar. Next is "Inside-Looking Out" recorded live in the United States, the Eric Burdon song performed by Weise's soulful vocals and exciting adventurous guitar playing, intertwining with Juma Sultan's congas and percussion; they twine the threads of blues for our future! "Song for Sylvie" is an epic reggae illuminating normal and slide tuned guitars ('glissando overtone' chops here), while trading licks with the powerful brass section featuring trumpets, saxophones and trombones. The 4th track "Crazy Crocodile", has Weise paying tribute to Texas blues as a heavy guitar shuffle with husky vocals, using the Australian crocodile as a metaphor and pun. Stepping up the pace is another USA live track, "Aussie Boogie" performed at breakneck speed where Weise's Strat remains indemne, and a word of merit to Juma Sultan's fiery congas. Slowing things down to "Dreamtime Lullaby" in a Mark Knopfler manner, are dreamy vintage Dobro guitars, with melodies over cinematic didgeridoo lines. Jimi's "Red House" is rendered in a Chicago blues style, with heartfelt singing and lots of guitar soloing (while never discarding the 'feeling' necessary to carry the weight of tradition), much like Hendrix meets Buddy Guy. The rockabilly "Back to Blacktown" (Australian rock riffs galore) hip to the blues bone, beefy vocals and uncanny guitar playing, best sums up this tune. "B Good 2 Me Jam" offers a psychedelic experience that makes ones mind travel to faraway distant lands, through guitar playing in another quantum dimension, the essence of classic rock-blues but with a new twist. Like a fast train, "Uluru Express" will take you across the Nullarbor Plains to central Australia, via slide guitar on a pulsating rhythm section and drone didgeridoos. The beach shores of "Bondi Soul Ride", are a joyful interplay of advancing musical waves, across a playful sea of terra incognita. Upbeat and toe-tapping is "Night Drive", as Weise stretches out on punctuating soloing, displaying Miles Davis technique of playing with spaces and silences, while delivering exciting guitar jabs and melodies. This album is a must-have for everyone's serious blues discotheque.
Blue Concerto for Orchestra (Slide Guitar and Violin), composed by Gerry Joe Weise, was performed and recorded by the 82 musicians of the St Peters Orchestra and Choir, at the Sydney Conservatorium. Gerry Joe Weise played slide guitar and lead violin.
