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)

Western Australian blues-rock up-and-comer Matty T Wall is itching to get out on the road in support of latest release ‘Sidewinder’. He'll be doing his thing all over Australia this winter, with shows on both coasts throughout July and August. His first gig on this tour is at The Perth Blues Club on Tuesday 3 July.

Sidewinder is a 12-track tour dé force through classic soul and screaming blues. It displays more of the slick guitar work that has seen him lauded worldwide as one of the best things coming out of the Aussie scene in a long while.

Key to the sound of Sidewinder is the presence of legendary Grammy-winning producer-engineer Bob Clearmountain. Famed for his work with the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and David Bowie and hundreds of other platinum artists, Clearmountain provides the sonic sparkle that helps set this new album apart.

With his newest release, all of the sides of Matty T Wall are in full frame. A young man with a reverent link to his lineage and a vital musical vision for the future, who’s not afraid to back himself. With Sidewinder, Matty T Wall turns it all the way up.

Matty is supported by Dom Zurzolo (7.30pm) and Lobebites (10.00pm)

Entry: $15.00 / $10.00 (members)
