Back in about 1982, one of the first of what we now call ‘Open Mic‘ nights was created. It was called ‘Garage Band night’ and was created and presented by Rick Steele. It ran for just over five years at the Civic Hotel in Beaufort St. until an upwardly mobile young fellah rang Rick Steele and told him, he had registered the name and to cease using it.

The Show moved to the Indy Bar in Scarborough and was re-branded as, ’Beat the Blues Show’.

Five years later, with a lot of middies under the bridge, meetings, and performances, the Perth Blues Club became an Incorporated, not-for-profit,organisation on December 9, 1992. The club, run entirely by volunteers, was and still is based at the Charles Hotel.

Over the 26 years of operation, every Tuesday evening, many a memorable night has been witnessed and performed. Nationally and Internationally, its reputation is as the best run and most enjoyable blues club in the nation.
International names such as Charlie Muslewhite and Johnny Johnson are just a couple of the many great acts that have featured at the Town of Vincent landmark.

To mark this notable and auspicious occasion we will be celebrating in the Beer Garden and part of the Carpark at the Charles Hotel. Second-hand stalls, car boot sales, umbrella stalls, a Perth Blues Club Merchandise Marquee, buskers, an outside stage, and Birthday frivolity will be evident. Indeed, we hope you will also find that elusive Christmas present for the person who has everything!

Stalls - with all their goodies for sale - will be open from 12 noon for those with a keen eye for a bargain. Very limited spots are available at a small fee, so please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our special guest performer will be Italian guitar virtuoso Gabriele Campani, who recently relocated to Perth, along with twenty or more of our local entertainers, including Club President Rick Steele. We will be providing almost non-stop entertainment from 2pm until 6pm.

The whole affair will be family friendly and we encourage you to bring Nono, Nanna, Grandpop and the kids - as long as they are house-trained. Baby Boomers are also welcome and. of course, the bar will be open and food will be readily available.

Come along for an afternoon of fun, food and some of the best music around @ the Perth Blues Club's 26th Birthday Party.
