Catfish is a gypsy jazz band with a classic Australian influence. A product of Melbourne's unique jazz scene, the band draws upon influences from the 30s to present day.
Intricate, quirky arrangements of borrowed and original material give the band a unique exciting spirit.
Catfish crafts each set for maximum impact drawing influence from Django Reinhardt, Les Doigts De L'Homme, Louis Armstrong, Julian Lage and more.
Joyous and exciting, Catfish is not to be missed at Gigs on Govetts in the Blackheath Bar & Bistro on Friday, December 6 from 7.30pm. Free.
Then on the Saturday (December 7), visit the same venue for Perth musicians, The Little Lord Street Band Duo.
This beloved WA indie/folk/country/good-feels outfit makes "music that crosses all boundaries - it's music for pure enjoyment" - Jake Wilton, AAA Backstage.
Natasha Shanks and James Rogers are The Little Lord Street Band Duo. Their duelling, duetting lead singer dynamic is reminiscent of classic Johnny Cash and June Carter; punctuated by the occasional jaw-dropping emotionally resonant acoustic number.
In their five years together, The Little Lord Street band have released three critically lauded EPs, toured Australia, and garnered significant national airplay on ABC Country, Double J, Triple J and community radio - racking up nationwide AMRAP Metro and Regional Top 10 singles and multiple additions to RTR FM's 'Sound Selection'.
They are winners of the WAM Best Country Act for two consecutive years - and winners of the 2018 WAM Song of the Year (Country).
At 35-41 Govetts Leap Rd, Blackheath. Family friendly - minors must be accompanied and supervised.
