Patrick Woodley is a legend to many in the local Aboriginal music scene. He learnt guitar as a child after he found an old broken guitar with 2strings, moving on to be one of the most talented and respected musicians in Perth. Patrick has been a main player in the Aboriginal Music scene since the mid 80s. He has developed a unique style of Aboriginal Rockin Blues, influenced by players such as Buddy Guy, BB King and Jimi Hendrix. Patrick has toured extensively throughout WA with his band No Shame and recently performed in London at the Border Crossing Festival. He is currently working on his new album, PJ Woodley Plays the Blues, and is a regular performer at the Perth Blues Club.

Patrick Woodley Band will be supported by Andrew Morgan (7.30pm) and Dr John & the Midnight Runners (10.00pm)

Entry: $15.00 / $10.00 (members)

Andrew Morgan

Well known for his work with The Bayou Brothers, Andrew Morgan (vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica, washboard, kazoo, jaw harp) was raised in New Zealand after leaving England as a young child.

One of his earliest musical ventures was a short stint as lead guitarist for New Zealand band, Rus L'Roq and The Romantics, led by a young chap named Russell Crowe. Unfortunately Russell wasn't a big fan of Andrew's overdriven guitar sound and citing musical differences, Andrew, who to this day still bears the emotional scars, was given his marching orders.

Who was to know back in those early days that the budding lead guitarist possessed a voice that can travel effortlessly from the growl of Son House to the smooth country croon of Willie Nelson? Certainly not Rusty Crowe!

Dr John & the Midnight Runners

Dr John and The Midnight Jammers have dug deep into the back catalogue of blues and have come up with songs and a sound that blends rootsy riffs with raw grooves. Think Howling Wolf meets Buddy Guy !!

Mixing rare blues gems with original numbers, The Jammers have found a fresh new sound that makes you want to jump and jive.

With Tony (the groove guru) Edwards laying down a solid back beat, Mark on Bass locking in the pulsing bass grooves, Phil (the slide master) Pearson adding searing solos on his old strat and jumpin' John (the Doctor) Smoker growling his way across the stage adding riffs on his Lucille Gibson and wailing into his old Marine Band harps, you are bound for a rockin' good night as Dr John and The Midnight Jammers roll you down the tracks through their back catalogue blues.
