Bill Lawrie and Paul Gioia have made the rich piano and guitar sounds of pre-war America their own, blues that is at once raw, poignant and loud. They are consummate performers, with Lawrie's gravel voice and Gioia's stompin' piano standouts in the Australian blues and roots scene. Their duo CD, Dead Cat Blues, is unique for an Australian release, and has featured on national radio and the Australian blues and roots charts. Their original solo music extends their repertoire to country, gospel and beyond. Rhythm heavyweights Greg Brenton and Joe Southwell give the Lawrie Gioia band an extra dimension that will rock your socks off.

The Lawrie-Gioia Band will be supported by Rupert Guenther Band (7.30pm) and Resonator (10.00pm).

Entry: $15.00 / $10.00 (members)

Rupert Guenther Band

Renowned for his unique blues breakers electric violin sound, Rupert Guenther is one of the noticeable new wave of blues players, spanning unplugged through to blistering
electric sounds from his gold top electric violin. Having spent two decades working as sideman to the stars, he is enjoying sharing his music in more intimate venues with local audiences again.


One of Perth's most entertaining cover bands, a three-piece outfit with a big, fat and fulfilling sound, is Resonator. The band plays pub rock and boogie classics from a wide range of styles, including electric rock, lowdown blues, acoustic country and funky grooves. What a way to finish the night.
