Due to unforeseen circumstances, Tuesday's Great 88 Show has some changes.

Bill Blissett and Peter Stone are both ill and are unable to perform. 

However, the show must go on so Bob Patient will perform an extended set of Fats Domino numbers and then the house band with special last-minute guests will cover some numbers from the music catalogues of Jerry Lee Lewis and Ray Charles.

We apologise for the lateness of this information, but we only had confirmation late Monday.

Bob and the Band are determined to put on a put on a great show so come on down and have a good time.

Again, we're sorry for the lateness of this information.

Please pass the information on to family and friends.

There's now another good reason for joining the Perth Blues Club.

As from 7th August, entry to the club will now be $20.00 on regular nights, but PBC Members will remain at $10.00.

The decision to raise the entry has not been taken lightly and reflects the current financial situation. However, the committee sought to give a greater benefit to members by freezing their standard entry fee.

Bill Lawrie and Paul Gioia have made the rich piano and guitar sounds of pre-war America their own, blues that is at once raw, poignant and loud. They are consummate performers, with Lawrie's gravel voice and Gioia's stompin' piano standouts in the Australian blues and roots scene. Their duo CD, Dead Cat Blues, is unique for an Australian release, and has featured on national radio and the Australian blues and roots charts. Their original solo music extends their repertoire to country, gospel and beyond. Rhythm heavyweights Greg Brenton and Joe Southwell give the Lawrie Gioia band an extra dimension that will rock your socks off.

The Lawrie-Gioia Band will be supported by Rupert Guenther Band (7.30pm) and Resonator (10.00pm).

Entry: $15.00 / $10.00 (members)
