First of all - the PBC is running an important survey to find out what it has meant to you over the past 25 years - so please take a little time to gather your thoughts and visit the survey page online.
Next, we have two new CD releases in quick succession: the first is this coming Tuesday when Datura 4 presents the new recording Hairy Mountain. The next is two weeks later when Harper celebrates the Australian release of his new CD Show Your Love.
On Tuesday 28 Feb we welcome Gordie Tentree and Jaxon Haldane from Canada. The duo will be opening for Ladybird & the Midnight Sun.

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.
Alternatively, you can collect a copy of the form from the PBC Shop on a Tuesday night and return the completed form before the closing date.
Datura4 CD Release
Perth psych rockers DATURA4 have released their new album, ‘Hairy Mountain‘.
The release follows up from their acclaimed 2015 debut album ‘Demon Blues‘. It is available online and instores now through Alive NaturalSound Records.
‘Hairy Mountain‘ builds on DATURA4’s ‘guitars to infinity‘ approach and classic song-writing skills and features ten tracks which celebrate an unbridled joy for rock’n’roll with a nod to the spiritual presence of their hairy Oz rock forefathers.
Recorded during the summer of 2016 at Electric City in North Fremantle and Real2Reel Studios in WA’s south-west, ‘Hairy Mountain‘ is the culmination of a lifetime of musical archaeology and the ongoing search for the never ending riff.
Aussie-born harmonica player Harper now live in the US, but is returning soon for an Australian tour with his band Midwest Kind to celebrate the Australian release of his latest CD Show Your Love.
His only WA gig is on Tuesday 7 March at the Perth Blues Club. It's been many years since Harper last appeared at the club, so make sure you don't miss this astonishing blues harp player and his new band.
The costs to cover recording, artwork, CD duplication and to hire a publicist to spread the word were raised through gofundme.com - one of the leading crowd-funding websites.
