For over three decades, Dave Brewer has been the backbone for many of this country’s most seminal acts, including The Elks, Dynamic Hepnotics, The Mighty Reapers and The catholics. Along with Lucky Oceans on pedal steel guitar, Ric Eastman on drums and Matt Willis on double bass, the Dave Brewer band will take you on a diverse musical journey covering blues, reggae, jazz, funk and more!
Dave has recorded multiple albums with various acts as well as his own album ‘Life of Riley’ released to popular acclaim in 2008. With The Mighty Reapers Dave Brewer has provided support for many visiting blues acts including BB King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, Screaming Jay Hawkins and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Dave has toured nationally, as well as touring Canada and Europe, where the band performed at both the Montreal and North Sea Jazz festivals.
In 2000, Dave moved from Sydney back to his hometown of Perth and since then has been playing regularly with his own band, the Dave Brewer band, The Lucky Oceans band,with Natalie Gillespie, Diamond Dave, the DooDaddies and others.
Dave Brewer said as the majority of our performances are geared towards a dance audience, the upcoming [email protected] show gives us the perfect opportunity to play a selection of our compositions that we rarely play.
“The Subiaco Arts Centre encourages musicians to create that special moment, that is often hard to find in most situations," Dave said.
Joining Dave and his band this Sunday, is Lucky Oceans - considered to be one of the most influential slide guitarists the world has produced, and also known for producing Planet, a world music program on Radio National.
Make sure to put this afternoon with some of Perth’s finest musical talent in your diary and be early to ensure a seat at what is destined to be a ‘sell-out’ event.
Tickets are free and are available on the day from 1.15pm, with concerts starting at 2pm and finishing at 3.30pm, including a short break to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine from the Subiaco Arts Centre bar.
