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.

Joining renowned bluesman Lindsay Wells on guitar and vocals is Bob Geaves on bass and Rob Leach on drums to make Awesome Wells. Much has been made of the new breed of Perth rock musicians who are putting our city on the world's musical map but Lindsay Wells has been doing it for over 30 years. To find out if that accolade is true, you have to experience the awesomeness of Wells up close and personal.

Wells is a musician whose career has extended to most of his life beginning at the age of 11 with the East Vic Park School Brass Band as a multi-instrumentalist majoring on trombone. As rock’n’roll became a magnetic driving force in the ‘60s, Wells decided to become a guitarist and quickly developed into one of Australia’s greats, featuring as a member and leader of some of the most entertaining and legendary bands in our music scene. He has since played as a guest with many of the world’s great bands including Eric Clapton with whom he played a two hour concert.
