Escaping from the smoking wreck of the widely and critically acclaimed Dude Ranch, Lucky Oceans (world renowned steel guitarist, and by now button accordionist) approached Bill Rogers (vocals, sax and harmonica) about starting a band to play some Zydeco. With ex-Dude Ranch guitarist/vocalist & Rock and Roll encyclopedia Kent Hughes involved, this trio began to rehearse while they searched for both repertoire and rhythm section.

From the start, the idea was to combine Zydeco with 'Cat' music - swing, jump blues and rockabilly, plus any other style that suited the line-up, including rock and roll, country blues, soul, R&B, Cajun and New Orleans R&B, plus a handful of Lucky's and Kent's own songs from the Dude Ranch song book. That was 1992 and the Zydecats were born.

Zydecats will be supported by The Simon Cox Duo (7.30pm) and Steve Rae Band (9.45pm).

ENTRY: $20.00 (General Admission) | $10.00 (Members).

Bloozology formed in 2007 as The McCowat - Nelson Blues Band, changing its name to the much-easier-to-remember moniker in 2010.

The current line-up has been together since 2012 and features Allan Lyford (bass and vocals), Alan McCowat (guitar and vocals), Paul Millard (saxes), Vince Pavitt (drums) and Tony Celiberti (keyboards). These are some of Perth’s most experienced and highly-respected musicians who pride themselves on exploring all facets of the blues.

Bloozology is supported by The Western Suntones (7.30pm) and Dr John & the Midnight Jammers (9.45pm).

ENTRY: $20.00 (General Admission) | $10.00 (Members)

This year we welcome Grant Touchell, Andrew and Shaun McIlroy (Father and Son), Gabriele Campani, Trevor Jalla and Jason Smith.

They will be joined on stage by bass guitarist Alan Dawson and drummer Frank Shinell, both from Empire Blues, with Kat Kinley on vocals. Collectively, they will bring an evening of great guitar blues culminating in a big finish with all muso’s on stage together for a mammoth jam session.

ENTRY: $20.00 (General Admission) | $10.00 (Members).

Craig Pinkney and Paul White (ex Pink and White Bridge) have teamed up with Bert Giancristofaro on bass, Kim Siragusa on keys and Mick Burn on drums to form La La’s Python.

Forming early 2019 and sharing song writing duties, they have co-written six songs to be released in the near future as an EP. Supplementing groove-orientated material from Craig and Paul’s back catalogue with similar style cover songs, the La La’s Python sound is best described as pure class.

The combination of strong melody with trademark vocal harmony branching styles of a country/rock/blues fusion performed by five first class musicians produces a special musical experience bound to please.

La La's Python is supported by Bootleg Al (7.30pm) and Collective Blues (9.45pm).
