Songwriters Circle @ ThePBC
On the 3rd Thursday of the month from 7pm
A songwriters circle at the Petersham Bowling Club, 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7pm, in a private downstairs room that’ll suit our purpose nicely.

The songwriting circle format is simple and casual – all are welcome to bring in original songs, finished or not, produced or live, for the purpose of giving and receiving constructive feedback. Bringing lyric sheets (5 copies) will help us all follow along.

Getting together like this helps us songwriters develop craft, confidence and a community, to keep doing what we love!

The Mighty Reapers
Jan 6 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm


The Mighty Reapers

Saturday January 6 @ 8.00pm – 11.00pm | Ticket Price: $26 pre-sale and on the door. | Bookings: https://www.trybooking.com/333298 
Blues, Soul & Very Funky Grooves with The Mighty Reapers. The Reapers are also playing at the Bowlo on Sat 13 January!
The Band: “Continental” Robert Susz: Vocals, Harmonica; Dave Brewer: Guitar, Vocals; Vito Portolesi: Bass; Antero Ceschin: Drums; Clayton Doley: Hammond Organ.
In January of 2013 the Mighty Reapers played their first Sydney show in two and a half years with a sell-out show at the Cat & Fiddle, Balmain. Reapers fans from all over Sydney came out of the woodwork to revisit one of this city’s most loved blues and soul combos. The band followed this up with huge shows at Petersham Bowlo in January 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. The great news is that the Reapers are back this January for two shows at Petersham Bowlo on Saturday 6th and Saturday 13th.
Once again guitarist Dave Brewer  has flown in especially from his home in Perth, whilst the globetrotting Clayton Doley will also be rejoining the classic Reapers crew. The Reapers rose from the ashes of the Dynamic Hepnotics in 1986 with “Continental” Robert Susz joining forces with guitarist Dave Brewer to form the very popular blues and soul outfit, recording a number of highly acclaimed albums, released here and in the USA, and playing behind artists such as Margie Evans, Big Jay McNeely, Lucky Petersen and Bobby Radcliff – to name just a few.

Eleanor McEvoy (Ireland)

Sunday 7 January @ 7.00pm – 10.00pm | Ticket price: $31 pre-sale and on the door | Bookings: https://www.trybooking.com/333269


Eleanor McEvoy, one of Ireland’s most accomplished contemporary female singer-songwriters, is back this January with two shows at Petersham Bowlo, Sunday 7th and Sun 21st! 
Respected as a fine multi-instrumentalist in both traditional and contemporary music, she is best known for writing ‘Only A Woman’s Heart’, the title track of an anthology album that has gone on to be the best selling album in Irish history. Eleanor’s sometimes quirky, perceptive songs, range from love ballads and story-telling to left-of-centre takes on the vagaries of life.

This tour is part of her ongoing ‘Naked … Live’ tour, promoting her last album ‘Naked Music’, as well as launching her brand new release, ‘The Thomas Moore Project’, which celebrates and revitalises the music of legendary Irish poet, singer, songwriter and entertainer, Thomas Moore, known for his songs, such as “The Minstrel Boy” and “The Last Rose of Summer”.
