8.45pm Blind River Blues Band

Together for only six months this band is already creating excitement in the Perth Blues Community. The line-up features on Vocals and Guitar Danny Needham (Choppers), a well known journeyman player originally learning his art in his native Yorkshire. On Lead Guitar and Vocals is Chris Peniston (Jimi) who honed his craft in a succession of bands on the East Coast before heading West a few years ago. On Bass Guitar is Ian Rutter (Mr Cool), who first came to prominence with the UK band “The Crew” and enjoyed top ten success with them on the UK charts. Ian has played with many fine WA bands over the years. The Drummer is Chris Fayle (Bear) who talks little about his past other than the fact that his music career started in Newcastle NSW many decades ago, and that he hits stuff for money. And the regular Blues Harp player (Adam). The band plays Chicago style Blues with an injection of attitude. We hope you enjoy!
