Thank you all who made The Charles Hotel gig such a great success. Bob and Sue Howard and Dave Martin, all the highest rank of Blue Badge Generals led the mass break-out. They were supported by Tom West and many south-of-the River convicts, plus the Mt Lawley Footy Club boys, John Oliver, and other die-hard soldiers from as far afield as Darwin and Adelaide. The band was superb with Howie Johnstone returning to kick arse on Joey Black and Strange Night. Original Suburb Haydn Pickersgill bobbed and dipped to the sound of Throbbing Knob. The management and staff were also wonderful. Next cab off the rank is my two hander musical THE KING AND ME at the Velvet Lounge Beaufort St Mt Lawley, 9.30 to 10.40 FEB 17 to 22. please note the printed fringe festival program has the dates wrong and the time askew, however it is correct info on the website for bookings. I’ll be co-starring with Caitlin Beresford-Ord to the guitar of Sam Musca. Martin Cilia may play also on the opening two nights.
Then Sunday March 8 The Suburbs are in Melbourne for the Caravan Club with the same band as Perth except that Greg Macainsh will play bass. Thursday March 12 it is the Django Bar in Marrickville, Sydney for a more acoustic version although Lloyd Gyi is coming down to add a little snare and Martin Cilia may also join with guitar to complement Bill Beare and Tony Durant.
If you make any of these shows, please come and say hello.
