Hi all, this one will be short and succinct, as much as I love coordinating events sometimes the associated admin is unbelievable. I’m currently buried under and close to overwhelmed. This weekend though is shaping up to be amazing with some absolutely cracking live music to be found. If you’re looking for music Saturday night you have two stellar options. The Esperance Motor Hotel carries on the tradition of fantastic live music for Saturday night with Boden Bosworth, Mel Wych and Michael Smith set to fire up the stage from 8.30pm. These guys are all classy performers. Michael of The Lazy Boys is a classic solo performer and well known for his 40-minute medleys. Head along Saturday Jan 12th for a great night. If you’re up for a boogie The Billy Baxter Kentet will be throwing down some tunes at The Esperance Bay Yacht Club Saturday January 12 from 7.30pm. These guys know how to get a party started, and with a beautiful venue, great food and cold beverages it promises to be a super fun evening.

Head back to the Yacht Club Sunday January 13 to catch a great line-up of local musicians as they fire up some tasty melodies in a classic Sunday Session. ROOBS (Robin Bottrell) performs his second set of the Summer in solo format following a stunning Esperance debut for his band ROOBS and the Washing Line Economy. Robin will be joined by Rachel Vibart, Demi Vandenberghe and yours truly. There may be a surprise performance in the wings, sneak down to find out what that’s all about. Doors open at 3pm with tunes from 4pm.

Live tunes at the Cannery roll on for Summer with There Goes The Sun set to take place Saturday January 19. The event sees a great local line-up featuring, Simon Poole, Carpark Social, Symo, Stung and DJ Jackson Juice. The bar will be open and food will be available to purchase from Esperance Sri Lankan Taste. Flotsam and Jetsam Exhibition will be available to view in the Main Gallery.
