The Perth Blues Club presents Michael + supports
Michael is a four-piece band from Perth WA that is fronted by Reggie Michael (vocals) and Sam Michael (guitar) and backed up by a rhythm section comprised of bassist Giles Lowe and drummer Alex Megaw. Having crossed paths playing in a variety of local outfits over the last twenty years, this quartet have finally come together to deliver their own take on dirty blues.
Michael will be supported by Lauralee Faith (7.30pm) and Scarlet's Way (9.45pm)
From Bessie Smith & Sister Rosetta Tharpe to Janis Joplin & Aretha Franklin..Lauralee will be performing some of the great tunes that have inspired her musical journey through the blues & beyond. Lauralee’s own style of stripped back, home grown blues has become a showcase at clubs in and around Fremantle & Perth. Lauralee performs regularly with The Bottleneck Ramblers, The Chills, U2ME and has performed at the Bridgetown Blues Festival and has been guest vocals for several gigs at the PBC. Joining her on stage will be Dave Milroy and John Smoker.
The super-smooth duo is made up of the talented Katey Gabel (Lead Vocals) and highly regarded Shayne Savic (Guitar). Their trademark southern, roots-inspired brand of music brings lashings of Americana, accompanied by polished overtones synonymous with modern day Nashville.
Since releasing their first single No Fire, No Flames which reached #7 on the iTunes Country Charts in 2017, they have taken their music to the world. They released their second single Simple Life in 2018, accompanied by their debut music video. This video attracted over 30,000 views in just the first week and was quickly added to Foxtel’s Country Music Channel (CMC) demonstrating the duo’s growing popularity. This was followed by their third single “Let the Devil In”, this seductive track went onto receive impressive radio support, staying in the AMRAP top 10 for two straight weeks.
The act has been invited to play on multiple stages at Tamworth Country Music Festival. These performances opened doors to Nashville's Americana Fest and the Gympie Music Muster. Highlights of the duo’s performances over the last 18 months include performing at the world-renowned Bluebird Café and completing a national tour performing at theatres and venues throughout New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia. They also took out the Emerging Artist Showcase and performed on Main Stage in their first year at the Gympie Music Muster in 2018. They were then promptly invited back with their band to be a part of a massive line-up in August 2019. The band’s first single since their debut EP release, “Move Your Body (Woah Oh Oh)” is a catchy, honky tonk style tune that is a tip of the hat to the Duo’s time in Nashville. The track is making waves, debuting at #9 on the iTunes Country Charts, with the corresponding music video being selected as part of WAM Festival’s ‘Mini Music Video Festival’ at the Rooftop Cinemas. If this is what Scarlet's Way can accomplish in such a short amount of time, what will the future bring! Aren't you curious to see what all the fuss is about? Shaun Street- Bass, Kim Siragusa- Keyboard and Mike Hagerty- Drums make up the rest of the band.
