LAST FRIDAY: Lucky Oceans came ‘Down From The Mountain’ and up the stairway to heaven to this gig on Friday to play with The Collingwood Casanovas and King Arthur. When these musicians hit the stage it was hard to look away. All these guys and gals can pick and play like the best of them ,with the big added bonus of 2 times Grammy award winning legend Lucky Oceans lending them some of his expertise on his Lap Steel and then on Pedal Steel . His rendition of ‘Sleep Walk ‘ was off the planet ! It truely was a memorable gig in Far North Coburg . The crowd were gorgeous as usual and didn’t mind a bit when i stormed the stage and got to display some of my old school mic technique . Its such a joy to hear boys singing in sweet sweet harmony . They are my kind of ‘Boy Band’ .luckyoceans

THIS FRIDAY : 

What can i say about Marshmallow Overcoat other than its SOLD OUT . It was a stroke of luck booking these guys . There i was shopping at the local Dan Mmm when this really happy employee came bouncing out of nowhere with the hippest haircut this side of an english oasis to offer me some suggestions about wine . One thing lead to another and  5 or 6 degrees of separation later I’d just snaffled Musical Royalty to come and play at the club and we hadn’t even opened yet ! eeeeek . This day has finally come for Ash Naylor (Even) Davey Lane (You Am i) and he of the hip haircut , Brett Wolfenden ( Murphy’s Hardware),to show why they own the 60s-70s rock throne.

MarshmallowSmall

PS : There’s word out that 15 extra tickets will be released on the day of the gig ,so if you missed getting a ticket, look out for that announcement from TMO on FB …

Hysteria , whoops I mean, Kastoria ..

LAST FRIDAY:
Well that was fun, that was really fun. What a rockin band Danny Walsh has. Especially Leo WEED Tellefson, he was on fire (great balls of fire). We danced, we drank and we boogie-woogied until the break of dawn. Thank you Danny Baby with your feathered hat..  A true Gentleman, along with being a great entertainer in a very, very good suit (3 piece velvet maroon with bell bottoms).  His light up guitar was a show stopper. I do love a bit of audience participation, well done to the couple on table 2! We won’t be banning the REZZA boys from the club, you are welcome creek side any day.

THIS FRIDAY:
It’s very exciting having JAKAL coming to play at the club. They will be funking it up and getting on down. The youngest band so far to come up the stairs, in fact that’s an understatement.  After Danny’s band these kids are virtual Babies. Lucky we all have our working with children checks!

Here’s what Max Teakle (band leader) has to say about the band,
“After crossing paths at VCASS (Victorian College of the Arts) in 2016, Max Teakle (Keys), Sam Watts (Bass), Kane Watts (Drums) and Imre Scicluna (Sax) started playing regularly. They had a weekly gig at a pub in Brunswick East, it was around then Max brought in a friend from his old school, Oskar Moore (Trombone). At the end of that year Max started writing music with Jessie Hillel (Vocals), they began to play these tunes at this residency and towards the end of 2017 they put it together officially and became Jakal.”

Here’s what I have to say about the band..
‘When I first heard JAKAL play I couldn’t believe my ears or my eyes. Plus they made me want to cut the rug and bust a move! Their mature sound for their years is astonishing, along with their song writing skills. All of the players have incredible talent and then when you hear Jessie start to sing, all heavens break loose. That gal can sing and she can write, AND she’s totally gorgeous to boot .. this Gig should not be missed, they are gonna funk it up big time and you WILL wanna dance.. If you have kids who look like they’ll be walking down the musicians road , I encourage you to bring them along ( free of charge ) for some inspiration and influence. It might even make them practice more!! (I’m talking to my kids when I say that)  BOOK HERE FOR JAKAL.    

BAR: The bar continues to be the cutest thing this side of the Coburg Pool. Thanks to Peter Negroni from the Railway Hotel on Nicholson st Nth Fitzroy for providing the club with some new tables and chairs..yeah Yeah! We rolled those big round dinner tables out and now we have some pretty cute little ones in their place and not to mention some very stylish chairs (made in Brunswick 1962).. Now we have more elbow bending room! So all’s good in the BAR and the fridges are chugging along just fine, oh and the BEER chugs down just fine too.

HERE’S WHATS ON NEXT 

FRIDAY 3RD AUGUST: Belmar Record release.. from ‘FLIP YOUR WIG’ ALBUM LAUNCH ‘Uh Oh! Chungo! So excited about this gig!! Probs because it’ll be my first gig at the club, eeeeek! (long awaited) Rob Price and I wrote a swag of hits, recorded them at Stevie’s Studio in Altona with the ‘Cream of the Crop’ of a band including  Mr Dai Jukebox Jones, along with a cast of thousands and now you have, UH OH!
