Back on Deck

I'm back on the Perth live music scene! After spending ten days with my family in the wheatbelt, great southern and southern parts of WA, I'm somewhat refreshed and recharged! My first weekend saw me play two solo gigs and a private do with the Wesleys. All very enjoyable...

A Little Break

For the first time this year I am taking a planned break from gigging! Yes, planned! I haven't cut a part of my body or suffered some sort of injury. My family are taking off on a jaunt down south, and we shall be gone for about 10 days; COVID-19 restrictions permitting. When we do get back to Perth I will have a four gigs waiting for me...

Zevon! And Moving On!

The 'big gig' on my horizon right now is happening this Thursday night! Far out, that's gone quick. At Lyric's Underground (Maylands) June 17th, The Excitable Boys will perform The Best of Warren Zevon. Who are The Excitable Boys, you ask? That would be myself, Kieran Murphy on drums, Brendan Tompsett on bass and Michael de Grussa on keys and guitar. We've had a ball rehearsing up the songs and it's going to be brilliant! Tickets are available online from Oztix, or you can click here...

Settling Back In

I've spent a little time reflecting on two big events that happened in the week just gone. Sunday 28th March saw the first live appearance of Wesley Goodlet Jamboree Scouts since December 2020. I joined the Wesleys for a 45min set at the Decade of Hope bushfire appeal gig at the Grand Central Hotel in Midland. This was the first time I'd been able to play guitar in front of a live audience since my NYE finger injury...

Slight Return

While my injured middle finger is healing nicely, I'm still a good few weeks away from resuming regular gigging duties. However, I am hoping to make an appearance with the Wesleys at the Decade of Hope fundraiser appeal! The event is being held at the Grand Central Hotel in Midland on Sunday 28th March, and there's a slew of local acts in the lineup. Tickets are available online from TAZ Tix (click here)...
