Dynamic blues power outfit Empire Blues’ primary influences come from the British Blues invasion of the1960s. Initially, the band took its material from this period, but over time it has moved on to performing more original material in the belief that for blues music to evolve, you can’t keep just repeating the past. The band features prominent Western Australian blues musicians Andrew McIlroy  (guitar/vocal), Alan Dawson (bass guitar/vocal) and Frank Shinall (drums).

Empire Blues is supported by Dean Haitani (7.30pm) and Common Man Band (10.00pm).

Entry: $15.00 (Members $10.00)

Remember the good times? Well, they’re back. Stones flavoured R&B with a twist of  rock’n’roll, a dash of blues and a splash of whatever that other ingredient is, is what makes the Love Bites. Having long since forgotten their vague promise to deliver that fourth chord, they remain in that magical era when bands got up, kicked it around and just had a brilliant time playing a bunch of songs.

Supporting Love Bites are The 3 and Dr John & the Midnight Jammers.

Entry: $15.00 (Members $10.00)

Toni Swain and her band visit the Perth Blues Club on Tuesday 20 March as part of their WA Tour.

Toni listened to her Dad’s band (Swan City Jazzband) in Perth as a young child, danced and sang along to the vinyl collection at home – Joni, Ella, Stevie, Etta, Michael, Donny, rock n roll, country, pop, soul; an eclectic mix that influenced her song writing from the beginning.

Toni wrote her first tune aged 11,  laying down drums, piano, vocals and guitar using two cassette decks. At 13 she was busking in Hay Street Mall, confident enough in her songs to sing them loudly to the world. At 19 she was on the road with a rock opera band, touring the eastern coast. A life time of live shows, touring and recording followed in Australia and overseas. She has produced three albums and three EPs to date. 

Major shows played recently include Echuca Blues, Devonport Jazz, Auckland Jazz and Blues festivals, and the band has been confirmed to play Broadbeach Blues, Wangaratta Jazz, and New Zealands Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues festivals this year.

Rhythms Magazine describes Toni’s music as “a glorious fusion of blues, r & b, soul and jazz….it defies categorization”. There is a sophistication in her original compositions, always delivered with style and panache, and that incredible voice! Toni is renowned for her intense, moving, live performances.

Toni’s touring band features the impressive Roy Payne on guitar (Don Walker band), Mike Rix double bass (Bridie King), with Perth drummer Garry Howard (The Mixtures) and blues royalty Bob Patient on keys.
