The Charlie Carter’s
Charlie Carters is an acoustic trio of musical friends playing the latest songs of WAM (Blues & Roots) award winning songwriter and entertainer Dilip Parekh. Joining him in the ensemble are much loved harp player Jean Guy Lemire, and bass player extraordinaire Alan Dawson. Their music is also drawn from the eight multi-genre albums that Dilip has recorded and released locally. Celebrate Life without Lockdown and receive the uplifting energy that comes from the dynamic music of Charlie Carters at their debut performance at Peel Estate.
Empire Blues is an established, dynamic Blues Power trio whose primary influences come from the British Blues invasion of the 1960s. Initially the band took its material from this period, but over time it has moved to performing more original material in the belief that for Blues music to evolve, you cant keep just repeating the past. Formed in 2005 the band features prominent Western Australian Blues musicians: Andrew McIlroy (guitar/vocal) Alan Dawson (bass guitar/vocal) Frank Shinall (drums)
All three musicians have been stalwarts of the Perth music scene for many years. High-energy blues is very much the staple of the band, which has a well-earned reputation for lifting the roof off many a blues venue. The band also brings together more traditional elements to many of its songs through the use of Dobro-slide guitar, fretless bass and brushes on the drums for an acoustic (not roots) blues feel. Together with great original tracks from their two full length CD releases, Empire Blues (self Titled) & Blue Diamonds, the band also covers material from, John Mayall, Eric Clapton/Cream, The Rolling Stones, Robin Trower, The Animals and many other great British blues artists.
The Big Town Players
“A unique blend of diverse influences culminating in a brand new interpretation of the blues.” We play old school Rhythm and Blues with new school Rock attitude.We’re talking Real Rhythm and Blues! Like that originally played in America in the ‘50s and ‘60s, which we’ve married to modern day rock producing an infectious repertoire with tongue in cheek lyrics that will have you dancing from the get-go.
Phil Bradley (guitar and vocals) is one of Perth’s major guitar-slingers! He has been a member of legendary outfits such as The Mutants of Desire, Brutus, Subtruck, Steve Tallis and The Snakes of Desire, Polite Society, and The Jets to name just a few. He has embraced the chance to embellish the BTPs with his inimitable style and his inimitable voice.
Howie Smallman (blues harmonica and vocals) has been heavily influenced by the old Chicago blues blowers, providing gun harp in many Perth bands over decades. These include Salty Dog, The West Coast Rhythm Kings, Jaywalkers, Sneekers, Dave Hole, Feet First, The Body and Fender Band, The Hips, Smeeton and Smallman, and Datura4.
Phil Riseborough (drums and vocals) has been a stalwart of this big town’s music scene, applying his percussive skills in the ‘70s to such outfits as Spinifex and Twice Shy. Phil later became a top sound engineer to Perth bands as diverse as The Stems and Matt Taylor. Phil returned to the drummer’s stool in the naughties with The Hips, and now BTPs.
Bob Greaves (bass) is originally from Sydney where he started playing in bands in the early ‘80s. General Panic, Catwalk, LLewellyn and The Lifeboat were some of the bands that enjoyed Bob’s distinctive bass style. Bob moved to Perth in 1994 where he has graced the stage with such luminaries as Lindsay Wells’ band Awsome Wells, Ian Kenny Band, Lee Sappho’s Body and Fender Band, Matt Taylor, and Michael.
