It has been almost a decade since we have increased our membership fees, but like all clubs, our costs are on the increase. After much discussion, the Committee has decided to increase the membership fees, but has kept the increase to a minimum.
Single Membership is now $65 ($67 by credit card), Couples is now $110 ($113 by credit card) and Student membership is now $35 ($36 by credit card).
We are now in the last month of the 2015-16 financial year and memberships are close to expiring. If you are a member, now is the time to renew, if you are not a member now is a good time to become one.
All patrons joining at the Club will now receive their membership cards on the night.
Our "Silver Jubilee" anniversary is fast approaching, so now is the time to be part of the most celebrated Blues Club in the southern hemisphere.

Veteran Australian singer-songwriter, keyboardist and producer Brian Cadd says he is looking forward to returning to home town Perth next month for a special Fundraiser for Legacy beside an illustrious group of local and national performers.
At 69 and now Melbourne based, Perth born Cadd says he is not looking to putting his feet up any time soon. "I don't think it would work any other way. I often say after a long tour, 'well I should probably cut right down the number of gigs next year' and then I go out for just as many gigs the next year.
"I can't yet imagine a year in which there weren't any shows. Until I can, I'll keep going. The writing and recording just always continues. I'd like to think that, as long as I have something to say, I'll continue to write and record."
Cadd's impressive biography says he produced fellow Australian acts Robin Jolley, Ronnie Burns, Broderick Smith, Tina Arena and Glen Shorrock and established his own record label Bootleg Records. He also composed or performed music for films Alvin Purple, Alvin Purple Rides Again, The Heartbreak Kid and for television Class of 74, The Midnight Special. His song writing for other acts includes The Masters Apprentices, Bootleg Family Band, Ronnie Burns, The Pointer Sisters and Little River Band.
In 2007, Cadd was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame by Jimmy Barnes.
Cadd says he returns to Perth as often as he can. Most of his immediate family moved east around when he did, but he still has friends from way back when living in North Perth and attending Mount Lawley Senior High School.
Appearing with Cadd at the 13th Annual Rhythm and Blues Variety Revue at the Astor Theatre on Saturday 2 July are Matt Taylor, Peter Dee, Bob Patient and Rick Steele. Also on the bill are The Healys, Birdland, Bill Blissett, Gary Cox, The Rippin Horns and The All Star Band.
“I’ve known Rick for a fair time now and we’ve done stuff together and I’ve known Matt Taylor since the '70s,” Cadd says. “I’m just looking forward to playing in my home town again. It will be fun.”
Brian Cadd performs at the Astor Theatre 7.30pm Saturday 2 July – don’t miss the opportunity to see the show this year!

Dynamic blues power outfit Empire Blues' primary influences come from the British Blues invasion of the 1960s. Initially, the band took its material from this period, but over time it has moved on to performing more original material in the belief that for blues music to evolve, you can't keep just repeating the past.
The band features prominent Western Australian blues musicians Andrew McIlroy (guitar/vocal), Alan Dawson (bass guitar/vocal) and Frank Shinall (drums). The band is well known for its faithful renditions of classic British Blues/Rock bands like Cream and Robin Trower, but these highly competent musicians will also treat you to a great selection of originals.
Empire Blues will be supported by Jed Rowe (8pm) and the PBC House Band, playing with their friends (10.30pm)
Entry: $15.00 (members $10.00)
