On our way towards ANZAC Day, we have another series of nights featuring some of the best local blues talent - of which WA has a multitude (aren't we lucky).
This coming Tuesday We have 4 acts. Opening at 7.35pm it's a new local band called Rcadia, so come and give them some support. Next it's Mini Marks visiting us from NSW to promote her new CD. At 8.45pm, Zack Linton and his band take the stage with Bob Patient playing with his friends rounding off the night.
On April 4th WA's spectacular harmony vocal band Pink and White Bridge headline the night. The band has been favourably compared with CSN with a contemporary blues folk feel and a taste of the acoustic vocal harmony we used to hear ‘70s with more than a hint of today’s West Australia.
And finally, just a few weeks left for you to send us your memories of the club's history and those significant moments that meant so much to you. If you've already contributed, we thanks you; if not, please don't delay.

Rollin' On The River with Rick Steele - Sunday the 26th March 2017
The next 'Rollin' On The River with Rick Steele' will be held on Sunday 26th March on board the Paddle Steamer Decoy.
Many know Rick as President of the Perth Blues Club and recent inductee to the WAM 'Hall of Fame'. Others know him as father of a successfull family of musicians. But Rick is also the son of a preacher man and started his musical career singing in the church choir where his father preached.
At 12 years of age he bought his first guitar for eight pounds after raising the money working at a local shop. His older brother John already had a guitar and, along with other kids from church, they taught themselves how to play.
Rick’s story reads like a real legendary blues man and we are grateful that he still bases himself Perth.
So join fellow blues lovers for Rollin’ On The River where two Perth icons (Rick and The Decoy) merge for a few special hours on the Swan River.
The PBC's Annual ANZAC Salute will be even bigger this year.
Starting on Tuesday 18 April at the Charles Hotel, we have our regular ANZAC Night featuring The Rising Suns Australian Army Band and guests.
Then on the following Tuesday (ANZAC Day), the City of Canning, in conjunction with the Rick Steele, Bob Patient and Peter Heeney, presents the 'ANZAC Legacy Blues Concert' at Civic Amphitheatre, 1317 Albany Highway, Cannington, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
Come along and enjoy a rousing and soulful afternoon of blues music including many local blues musicians who are regulars at the PBC.
This event supports Legacy WA, a charity organisation caring for the families of those who served their country. Visit www.legacy.com.au for more information on Legacy.
The Perth Blues Club (PBC) is 25 years old this year. Many believe it to be the most successful blues club in Australia and perhaps the southern hemisphere. Subsequently, we want to know what are the significant factors that have helped the PBC achieve such status.
We would like you to let us know what the Perth Blues Club means to you and what significant experiences you have had there. To answer these questions we are undertaking a survey of members, musicians and others that have attended or still attend the regular Tuesday night performances and special events at The Charles Hotel and elsewhere.
Your response will be reviewed and used potentially in an article, and as selected quotations in a proposed publication about the Perth Blues Club in celebration of bringing you 25 years of live blues music in Perth.
Please provide your response by the end of April 2017.
