FEASTER is Perth’s newest state-of-the-art original live music showcase. It features the finest selection of local musicians and bands each month. This collaboration between the Fly and Toward Music comes in an effort to support, nurture and grow the creative opportunities for local artists. Don’t forget to put August 26th in your diaries for FEASTER #4!
Kate Ferguson: Kate is a storyteller and adventurer at heart. Working as a journalist, her time has been divided between slinging a camera and a guitar around the far flung corners of Australia. Kate’s solo work consists of songs written on the road; from dingy hotels in a flooded outback Queensland, to the decks of the Endeavour replica off the coast of Geraldton. However, if you’re expecting yet another long haired, soft slinging chick, plucking sweet notes on a guitar you’re in for quite a surprise.
Leoh: A lion, an enigma, an old can’t and Hercules. Playing grunge indie rock and drinking beers in both hands. This four-piece are driven by deep basslines and mysterious vibes, supporting the likes of Gold Suns, Timothy Nelson and SA legends the Wanderers. In the last few years, Leoh have graced the stage of Nannup Music Festival and more recently, released their Half Glass Full EP.
Moorditj Brothers: The Moorditj Brothers are an Australian trio, a ‘jam band’ of sorts, throwing a distinctly different show at every performance. Their music, a blend of vocals, guitar, drums and didgeridoo can only be described as unpretentious ‘didge drum dance’. Drawing influences from Xavier Rudd, Bob Marley, Ben Harper and John Butler, the band blend Spanish and reggae undertones to create a truly unique sound. But it doesn’t stop there! The plot thickens when they hit the stage, captivating audiences with their delivery of finely choreographed drum instrumentals, acoustic roots guitar and pumping didgeridoo.
The band’s self-titled debut EP is a must listen – a term well overused but exceedingly accurate. The EP, the music and the performances of the Moorditj Brothers has demonstrated an audience’s willingness for more and the band’s popularity has unmistakably rocketed.
The Milkmen: Once upon a time, the milkmen were those that delivered cold fresh milk at the doorstep of your house. Empty bottles left with coins to pay for more milk. Turn the page of history to today, and The Milkmen are not what you think. The Milkmen are an original, acoustic rock band based in Perth that have been going strong since 2006. Listen closely and you can hear years of blended velvet sounding ballads, driving rhythms, catchy and thoughtful lyrics which take the listener from folk/blues/indie/pop to foot-tapping rock. When asked to categorise their style, says the band “genres are boundaries, so we don’t like to define our style. We’re all about good music with captivating lyrics“.
Step out of your front door and you won’t see the milkman deliver your milk. Listen to The Milkmen or drop by a performance and you will know why they aren’t ordinary on delivery of great music. These guys are destined for big things!
Legacy of Supremacy: Bringing the party back to rock n roll since 2006. Legacy was born from the idea of bringing heavy melodic riffs and guitar shred back to commercial music. With a mission to revive a forgotten sound, Jacob Kenny, Curtis Sucksmith, Frank “Bam Bam” Lupino and Tristan Hodges have taken out the defibrillator to prove rock ain’t dead, it just needed a kick in the guts!
Their infectious hooks, searing duelling solos and the tightest rhythm section in the country will have your attention as they destroy the stage with the hottest glam live set in town. With their second album due later this year, a Legacy show is a must see!
Black River Ransom: Three-piece psychedelic blues rock ‘n’ roll. The longstanding songwriting partnership of Gabrielle Harter and Scott James paired up with the thunderous drumming of Benny Patterson gives rise to this blues-driven, fuzz-drenched wall of sound and mayhem that is Black River Ransom. With old school panache and charisma, the trio deliver an energetic, well-crafted, and genuine performance.
Reformed and reborn in a lounge-room early 2016 after a premature split late 2015 came just weeks after their much-anticipated debut EP Rita. Armed with new material and essence, the Freo-based trio are currently recording their second EP. Their sound is complete, exploratory and dynamic.
