The boys in the Jook Joint Band have been busy. In April we played at the Swallow Bar ably supported by Mr Nick Glorie who jumped in for Bill (‘The Wanderer”). Thanks for that Nick -it is always a joy to play with you. The hospitality, great food, wine and beer and the receptive crowd made it a most enjoyable Sunday evening. We had some concerns when Paul our bassist decided he would start working his way through all the wines on offer but fortunately he only scratched the surface of the Swallow’s extensive wine list.
Perth Folks & Roots Club invited us along for a gig at their monthly get-togethers at the Mount Lawley Bowls Club. They showcase local and visiting artists from a variety of musical backgrounds. So if you are looking to discover some of the hidden musical talent around Perth it’s a good gig to catch. Check out their website: http://www.perthfolk.org/
We then went back to play at the Arthur Grady Day celebration as part of the Fremantle Heritage Festival. The weather was fine, the locals welcoming and the background roar of vintage motor bikes was sweet.
Coming up we are playing at the National Hotel in Freo on Sunday afternoon on the 26th June. We look forward to seeing you up on the dance floor!
Following up on the National we will be back to the Swallow Bar in Maylands on the 10th of July between 5-7pm. Be there to catch some good vibes and see Paul continue on his wine list conquering quest.
Thanks for all those who have been able to attend our gigs (or wish they were there) and we hope to see you all at one of our upcoming gigs.
