Angus Roy/PJ Orr/The Lost Husky
Jun 1 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Friday 1st June – Upstairs at the Petersham Bowling Club

Two travellers, Angus Roy and PJ Orr, four years estranged…
Once fused through the decade-band, Hailer, the two have taken their songs on parallel journeys in recent years. Cutting their own solo long-player’s, continuing to wield the guitar at the creative core. Songs and songs and songs have flowed and movements made to new albums, but shows have been sparse… That is about to change.
This June, AR’s stretched out tales of love and loss will travel up from Melbourne and piggy back PJ’s psychedelic, Sydney-membrane on a revolving-headline run of shows between their two hometowns. There’ll be plenty of new tunes floating along, with the shows acting as pre-cursor to their respective sophomore LPs.
Keep an eye on the skies this winter, as the two re-unite and ENTER SPACE.

Sunday 3 June @ 6.00pm – 9.30pm
Ticket price: $26 pre-sale and on the door.

Bookings: https://www.trybooking.com/380693

A supercharged night of New Orleans-inspired Funk, Blues & Soul, featuring keyboard-master Clayton Doley, from The Mighty Reapers, with an amazing All-Star 8-piece Super Band, featuring a 4-piece horn section!

If you love funky Hammond keyboard sounds, heartfelt vocals, contagious guitar grooves, a driving bass-line, fatback drums, and an insanely riffing horn-section, this is a night not to be missed!

Over the last fifteen years Clayton has played with a who’s who of international artists such as Joe Bonamassa, Walter ‘Wolfman’ Washington, Steve Cropper & Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn (Booker T & the M.G.’s, Blues Brothers), David Garibaldi (Tower Of Power), Jimmy Barnes, The Divinyls, The Dead Daisies, Hubert Sumlin, Mojo Buford, Louisiana Red, Guitar Shorty, Renee Geyer, The Mighty Reapers, Eugene Hideaway Bridges and Jackie Orszaczky – to name a few. He has also forged a strong reputation as an artist and band leader in his own right and this night will provide a great showcase for this.

Clayton Doley’s Bayou Billabong Big Band:

Clayton Doley: keyboards and vocals; Jan Bangma: bass; Irwin Thomas: guitar; & Jamie Cameron: drums; Dave Panichi: trombone; Steve Fitzmaurice: baritone sax; Stephan Schafer: tenor sax; & Ray Cassar: trumpet.

Concrete Lawn
Sydney’s newest, rippingest punx fresh off of the release of their demo cassette on Urge Records. Can you smell the Concrete Lawn?

Married Man
Formerly the rad loop-driven solo project of Sarafina Pea, Married Man is now the definition of POWER TRIO, featuring members of Photogenic, Busy Tones, No Döz, Hannahband and more!

A fairly new band featuring members of Ted Danson With Wolves, Arafura, Narrow Lands, Clean Shirt, Coward Punch and Loose Fit. Loud, noisy, repetitive, hopefully not too repetitive. They sound and look like this but with way more trumpet now.
