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)...

On the Bench

Well, the big news in my camp at the moment, is that I'm currently unable to play the guitar! I had an altercation with a kitchen knife that ended badly. You can read more about what happened here, if you like. Anyway, long story short, the middle finger on my left hand nearly lost its tip. It is healing up now, but it will be a while before I can press down on a guitar string with it...

The Best of Bowie

I'm very excited to be a part of this Bowie gig! WGJS have joined forces with two awesome musicians that we played with at this year's Mind Warp Pavilion 4 show in January. We have put together a most excellent selection of songs for The Best of Bowie, which will be happening at Clancy's Fish Pub in Fremantle this Sunday 29th November! Tickets are available online from Oztix...

Moving Forward

I don't think I've ever been as grateful to live in WA as I am now. I've been very lucky to be able to play in pubs again since July, and I've even had some weekends of four gigs! I hope that WA keeps moving forward and more venues start using live musicians again. My Thursday nights at Bar Orient in Fremantle are still happening, which I'm very thankful for. You can catch me on stage every week from 7:30pm...
