Cross Eyed Cats + Kerry B Ryan Blues Experience
Cross Eyed Cats | 7.30pm
Cross Eyed Cats hail from Fremantle (mainly), Western Australia, and have been playing some bloody good blues for nearly 20 years (really? is it that long?) The Cap’n, Sweetlips, Gouldfingers, Baggy Shorts and Da Pumpkin congregate in the cellars and backyards of salubrious of establishments like the Davilak, Charles Hotels, the Fly By Night, Strange Company and The Duke of George in Freo, to conjure and concoct a veritable cornucopia of compositions in the idiom loosely referred to as the blues.
Steadfast in their unwavering commitment to having a great time and greasing the blues as only they can, the set list includes about half of the tunes of their own creation, about a third creative interpretations of old blues standards and about one sixth (do the maths) fair and square covers of tunes the boys love. Regrettably, you won’t be finding any KC & the Sunshine Band in their repertoire. Grab a drink from the bar, shout one for the band and enjoy some shuffle ‘n’ swing from Freo’s finest Cross Eyed Cats.
