Lauralee Faith and The Fat Wallet Blues Band + Kerry B Ryan Blues Experience
Lauralee Faith and The Fat Wallet Blues Band | 7.30pm
The Fat Wallet Blues Band performs a blues repertoire that features great songs by artists not always showcased on the WA blues scene – it’s our mission to keep things fresh and interesting whilst indulging our audience completely in the blues !
Amongst the different currencies in the Wallet we have:
Lauralee Faith – Vocals. With a voice that’s earned her winner of the WAM song of the year 2022, Lauralee’s vocal dynamics range from the deeply soulful, to powerful and intense, even soothingly sensitive – her voice is likely to reach parts of our audience that Heineken hasn’t even dreamed of yet !
Dennis Thal – Guitar. Dennis is a Blues purist to the core, starting his musical career playing blues guitar in the late 60s, moving to London in the 70s and playing the pub scene there before returning to Zimbabwe, forming the original Fat Wallet Blues Band in the 90s and migrating to Australia in 2004
Vince Pavitt – Drums. Vince has been playing in and around Perth for over 20 years ago. He’s recognised for his tasty fills, groove and timekeeping and best known for his work with top Perth funk/blues band Bloozology.
Peter Altmeier-Mort – Bass. A multi-instrumentalist and composer/arranger, Peter has led a diverse career as a professional musician. He has worked and performed with many national popular-music identities and various media organisations in the Eastern states and has played guitar and bass with Indigo Duck, The Howling Desperados, Suzi & The Reptiles in Perth.
Geoff Sedgwick – Keyboards. Geoff has played keyboards in and around Perth over the last 20 years in various bands across several genres. He finds the opportunity to re-kindle the spirit of the original Fat Wallet Blues Band and the musical collaboration with Lauralee, Dennis, Vince and Peter to be pretty damn exciting.
