Part of the Perth Blues Club's charter is to mentor new and up-coming acts and provide performance opportunities at the club.

Over the past few weeks, we've been opening the doors a little earlier on Tuesdays and putting on an extra act at 7.35pm. This has proved to be a popular move so we will be continuing this initiative into 2017.

So now, the PBC offers even greater value for money with more than four hours of live entertainment and up to four different acts each and every week and all for an average of $15**.

Perth has produced an amazing list of highly talented and proficient musiciancs, and no more so than in Blues and Roots. So come on down to the club and experience a great night out.

** Entry fee for members is usually $10. International and some interstate acts will attract a higher entry fee.

The Perth Blues Club's annual Christmas Party is one of the most anticipated nights of the year when anything could (and does) happen.

Traditionally, local 'bluesicians' turn up and join the house band for one or two numbers and sometimes there can be a whole host of guitarists, all taking turns to out-shred each other.

Following the success of the pre-show session in the beer garden for the 25th anniversary, it's been decided to kick off the party a bit earlier than usual. The festivities will now start at 5pm in the beer garden of the Charles Hotel, then from 7.30pm in the band room.

So get down early and get in the festive mood for what promise's to be a great night.
