Johnny Law and the boys’ ever evolving style encompasses the great sounds of the 1950s, with styles such as Americana, Rockabilly, Country and Rock and Roll.

Johnny hails originally from Perth, but has spent time living in California and toured extensively, constantly developing and absorbing influences and inspiration from the global music community.

His music has been described as a raw, real traditional rockabilly: a mix between Johnny Carroll, The Johnny Burnette Trio and early Elvis Sun Records stuff, with a modern sound thrown in.

Johnny Law & the Pistol Packin' Daddies perform at 9pm with Steely Blues opening the night at 7.30pm. 

Steely Blues - 7.30pm

Steely Blues nSteely Blues are a rockin’ blues outfit fronted by newest member vocalist Teresa Scerri with Tim Halse on lap steel, Greg Lewis on bass, Graham Johnson on drums and now recently added to the line up Todd Ellery on keyboards. Their sound is driven by relentless rhythms and searing steel licks.

Lap steel guitarist Tim Halse is a firebrand and pioneer in his own right. He has developed a unique, double-slide approach to playing lap steel. His YouTube videos have featured on the ‘Steel Guitar Forum’ drawing praise from slide and lap players around the world.

Greg Lewis on bass and Graham Johnson (drums) are a potent rhythm section. These guys are veterans of blues construction - tension and release, shadow and substance, mild and muscle: Blues that tell a story.

Steely Blues cut their teeth the hard way… playing prisons. Rows of hard blokes in prison greens: tattooed, goateed and arms crossed. No dark rooms or synthetic fog to hide behind. This is what the blues is all about.
