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)

Myles Mitchell Trio 

Myles Mitchell evokes the lyrical storytelling of Johnny Cash, the baritone vocal stylings of Jim Morrison (The Doors), and the sounds of West Australian blues and roots to create his own unique blend of Hip Shaking Alternative Blues.

With more than 80 live performances across Australia and the USA in the past two-and-a-half years with Red Stone Sinners, and a debut album that received national airplay throughout Australia, Mitchell is at it again in 2016 with a new journey.

Stepping out under a solo banner and collaborating with a network of talented musicians, this is a new exploration of Mitchell’s song writing, which is worldly, wise, relevant, sexy, surprising and downright fun. Mitchell performs solo or with a three-piece band and his distinctive style of high-energy performance and cheeky repartee is always part of the show.

Born out of the Perth Blues scene and schooled on tour in the USA, Mitchell distils a rich array of life experiences and global excursions into this deeply West Australian musical experience.

Stay tuned and stay connected as Myles Mitchell creates new musical transmissions for the world… emanating from the deep deep south.
