In addition, PBC President Rick Steele and Guitarist David Milroy have set up a LIVE 'Spoonful of Blues' session across the road from RTRFM on Monday Nights from 6pm to 9pm at the 'Flying Scotsman' Tavern.

Rick and David will perform live each week and after the interview, the featured artist will come over to the Flying Scotsman to join in and perform a few of their own songs.

At the 2017 AGM held on the 19 September, the attending members of the Perth Blues Club voted that the printed newsletter should not be posted out in the future due to the rising cost of printing, postage and handling. 

As a result of that vote the current newsletter will be the last to be sent by mail. Copies will be available by email to download and print, if desired. If you currently receive your newsletter by post, please send your full name and email address to Ken at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and you will be added to the email list.

The email version still comes out every five weeks and is exactly the same printed newsletter. However, you will receive it a few days earlier than by post. As usual, a limited number of printed copies will be available at the Club on Tuesday nights and at the Charles Hotel at other times.

In addition, the weekly update will keep you informed of any changes to the upcoming program of events.

We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support, and we are sorry for any inconvenience.

The PBC will celebrate the 14th Annual Memorial Show, now back at the Charles after eight years at the Astor Theatre. 

This year will follow last year's plan and feature as many artists as possible performing in a collaborative fashion. Richie Pavledis is back from Switzerland and I  hear the "Hot Biscuit Band" will recharge for a few tracks.

Bob Patient will be "Playing  with my Friends" - Pete Romano, Mark Constable, Bill Blissett and more to be announced. 

October 31 is also Halloween, so costumes are optional!
