UBlues Band from Singapore
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Supergroup Universal Blues Band – the spearhead of the Singapore blues scene – is here for ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Ublues was born literally out of the Perth Blues Club when Rick Steele introduced Danny Loong to Trevor Jalla in 1999 at the Bridgetown Blues. The rest as they say is history with Ublues recording their first album “Get on the blues train” with Joe Whittle and Phil Arena in Fremantle.

Ublues continued to perform around Perth from 1999-2001 at the PBC and once more at Bridgetown, after which Danny and Trevor moved to Singapore and were based there from 2001 to 2005. During that time, they performed at many of Singapore’s key events and clubs, but also organized their own music festival “Ublues Fest” from 2002 to 2003 featuring Perth musicians Rick Steele, Chelsea Gibson and Blue Shaddy Band during those 2 years.

Ublues in Singapore was joined by Francis Chan on bass and Gary Tan on drums. The band started performing overseas notably being the first ever Asian band to play at Byron BayBlues Fest and did so for a total of 3 years. Then came the Barcelona Blues Festival in Spain, Jakarta Blues Festival as well as gigs in other parts of Asia and in the Memphis USA “International Blues Challenge”. They even played on Buddy Guy’s Legends stage in Chicago with Buddy looking on.

We are proud and elated to return to its roots at The Perth Blues Club on 14 May to perform at the venue which started this wondrous musical journey. The band are very grateful to Rick, the Steele family and the members of the Perth Blues Club for the support all those years. 

Universal Blues will be joined on stage by former member Trevor Jalla who now lives in Perth.

Supports are Hot Biscuit Band (7.30pm) and Singapore Sling (9.45pm).

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

There’s nothing more exciting than the sound of a sassy Rockabilly Filly out front of a serious posse of hot muso’s getting’ messy with their instruments!

Harry Deluxe is a raunchy retro-inspired songbird whose vocal talents rival some of the hottest swing and rockabilly icons.

Swingin' from Ruth Brown and Etta James to Janis Martin and Wanda Jackson this 'swingabilly filly' can belt out a ballsy tune that will knock the bobby socks off even the most mellow cats and kittens, and then soothe your every ill with sexy, soulful crooning.

Harry's hot blend of kitschy-cool classic covers and sassy original tunes make her one truly unique entertainer. A foxy female Brian Setzer - this chick can swing, rock and boy is she blue.

Harry Deluxe and the Cap Gun Johnnies are supported by La La's Python (9.45pm).

The Blind River Blues Band has been together for only six months and is already creating excitement in the Perth Blues Community.

The line-up features  Danny Needham (Choppers) on Vocals and Guitar, a well known journeyman player originally learning his art in his native Yorkshire. On Lead Guitar and Vocals is Chris Peniston (Jimi), who honed his craft in a succession of bands on the East Coast before heading West a few years ago. On Bass Guitar is Ian Rutter (Mr Cool), who first came to prominence with the UK band "The Crew" and enjoyed top ten success with them on the UK charts. Ian has played with many fine WA bands over the years. The Drummer is Chris Fayle (Bear), who talks little about his past other than the fact that his music career started in Newcastle (NSW) many decades ago, and that he hits stuff for money. The regular Blues Harp player is Adam.

The band plays Chicago style Blues with an injection of attitude. We hope you enjoy!

The Blind River Blues Band is supported by Dom Zurzolo (7.30pm) and Blues ConFusion (9.45pm)

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

On behalf of Gary Cox's family, we are pleased to pass on this message of thanks from Kieryn. 

I am so grateful to the amazing musicians who made last week's tribute to Gary Cox a massive success. It was truly a beautiful and emotional night and the afternoon in the beer garden was magical also. With more than six hours hours of music played by 36 musicians (by my count) and between 250-300 attendees, we raised $2899.55 for "Saving Animals From Euthanasia" (split between Metro and HQ branches) from donations on the door and online - https://shoutforgood.com/events/gary-cox-tribute.
