Chess Set

7.30pm Midnight Sun

Midnight Sun is an acoustic duo from Perth WA who is known to entertain the troops with their spin on songs of old and new. Jase is one of Perth’s top and most well known guitarists, who plays lead for Murphy’s Lore and Magnificent 7. Kat was the keyboardist for the Bad Boys of Blues, Stingray and recently four-piece rock band Blue Gene, as well as guesting in some of the Perth Blues Club’s special event nights. With Jase on acoustic guitar and stomp box, and Kat on the ivory tinklers and lead vox, this duo is a far cry from the regular duos that are out there in the Perth area.

8.30pm Chess Set

Chess Set are Richard Roberts (lead vocals, harp &guitar), Steve Garde (lead guitar, vocals), Robert Bailey (bass, vocals), Ace Follington (drums) and Jim Frazer (keyboards, saxophone).
When the Chess Set play on Tuesday July 9th at the Perth Blues Club the feet will be tapping & bodies swaying…

9.45pm Diamond Dave & the Doodaddies

The Doodaddies are a four piece Chicago style blues band featuring the red hot guitar chops of Dave Brewer and the sensational harmonica playing of ‘Diamond’ Dave Billing. The Doodaddies cover a solid selection of uplifting grooves including swinging shuffles, soul, boogaloo, ‘cry in your beer’ blues and more. With a number of live shows and two CD releases including the acclaimed album ‘Lonely Part Of Town’ The Doodaddies prove not only that the roots of the blues are strong and far‐reaching but that the future of the blues is bright!
Joining them is John Wilson on bass and Yugon Chobanoff on drums.
