This set sees them covering Koko Taylor, Big Mama Thornton, Bonnie Raitt, Elmore James and Renee Geyer, just to name a few.

Cathy Earl Band is supported by The Hardey McMurrick Two (7.30pm) and Funkoustic (9.45pm).

The Perth Blues Club is launching two new online services over the next couple of months.

First of all, we'll be offering advanced ticket sales via Moshtix. Initially, this will be for non-members to buy General Admission Tickets, but we will also be introducing a service for Members' Tickets soon afterwards. Tickets will be available via links from our main website (www.perthbluesclub.com) and our facebook site (www.facebook.com/theperthbluesclub), as well as directly through Moshtix.

This will mean that we can reach a wider audience of prospective patrons by taking advantage of Moshtix's targeted email lists. 

The second of these new services will be the introduction of an online Membership Management system. This will allow people to join the club by filling in an online form and paying through PayPal - the leading secure payment system. In addition, existing members will be able to log-in to the club's website and keep their membership information up to date. We will be adding some new member benefits, the first of which will be a free double pass sent to you on your birthday and members will receive email reminders when renewals are due and will be able to pay their renewal immediately or at any time 24/7.

When this service is launched, members will receive an email with temporary log-in details. Once logged in, they will be required to change their password and add some additional data that will enable us to provide a wider range of services in the future.

These new services are part of our plan to improve the way in which we do business with and build a stronger relationship with our members.

There will be more information available soon.

The blues is music that travelled on trains and steamboats from the Mississippi Delta to the neon streets of Memphis, Chicago and St. Louis. For MattyTWall – a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and bandleader – it is the supernatural sound that crossed the ocean to Perth, Australia to ignite his imagination and give power to his art. A young man with an old soul: Matty is connected to music with a wealth of history as he distills a diversity of genres into his own blues-influenced soul, jazz and rock signature.

His points of references are wide; he has studied and played a spectrum of styles including flamenco, swing jazz and funk, and he attests to a love for “heavier things” in his youth, bands like Metallica and Sepultura among them. But he remembers how the musicians he admired would honor the blues masters who came before them. And following the trail of Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan backwards, he was hooked. “I discovered Robert Johnson and he made the hair on the back of my neck stand up,” he remembers. “I got into the blues and have never gotten out of it.”

As a guitarist, Matty wrings raw emotions from single notes, stretching and bending the strings of a Les Paul into sounds both persuasive and human. While he is capable of blazingly fast leads, he also drives the beat with percussive punctuation and solid assurance. With his vocals, he coils along the lines of the guitar. “I enjoy using my voice as another instrument,” he avows. He says that his songs are primarily riff-driven, and he compiles his musical notations into a catalog of 50-100 concepts that he can call up when lyrical inspiration strikes.

In performance, Matty fronts a band of seasoned pros to support his songs. His preferred configuration is a trio: where the guitar has plenty of air around it. “Sometimes playing with a bigger band is a strait jacket,” he observes. “With a trio I can go crazy.”

While the music that Matty plays has roots in the past, he is a very much an artist in the present. Through his reverence for historic musical forms, he is not emulating, but redefining these sounds, as he introduces classic genres to new listeners and invests them with his own trademark.

Matty is supported by Andrew Winton (7.30pm) and Empire Blues (9.45pm).

Apollo’s Attic brings an energetic catalogue of original songs born from a diverse and eclectic mix of influences.

True blue Aussie, Luke Crabb (percussion) grew up in Esperance and, with a gospel influence, brings a heavy funk drive to the music. Thomas Grober (bass) is originally from Germany where he found musical inspiration in the local acid jazz, rhythm & blues and funk scenes. Matt Hennessy (lead guitar) provides a raw blues sound with searing guitar lines influenced by Clapton, SRV and his fellow countryman, Rory Gallagher. English born, Paul Wesson (vocals & guitar) adds a little darkness to the sound citing influences such as Peter Green, David Bowie and Australia’s own Nick Cave.

Apollo's Attic is supported by The Myles Mitchell Trio (7.30pm) and Swamp Riders (9.45pm).

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