Description

Join us at The Backlot for this every special event as Perth music legend Dom Mariani goes one-on-one with Bob Gordon to talk about his career and play music with his band, Datura4. The originator of The Stems, who were inducted into the WAM hall of fame in 2018, Mariani has been a constant on the music scene globally since the 80s. Well known and respected for his songwriting, guitar mastery and consistently brilliant live performances, this is your chance to get up close and personal with the legitimate living legend that is Dom Mariani.

The Live At The Backlot Up Close And Personal series are incredibly special events that provide insights into artists you don't get anywhere else, with intimate performances and access that fans can only dream about.

Come early for some food and a drink in the bar, enjoy the luxury of the venue as you are enveloped in the life, times and music of Dom Mariani, and stick around for the meet and greet afterwards.

Dom Mariani came to prominence on the music scene in the 1980s with legendary garage rock combo The Stems who released a string of now classic singles that topped the alternative music charts, culminating in the release of their debut album “At First Sight…Violets Are Blue”. Mariani later went on to form revered power pop outfits DM3 and The Someloves, where his knack for writing infectious melodies gained him respect and a well deserved reputation on the international scene.

Growing up in the isolated port town of Fremantle in the 1970s on Australia's west coast, Mariani was a budding guitar player who worshipped the Beatles and Creedence Clearwater Revival. As music trends evolved, he found himself deep in Australia's burgeoning pub rock scene, thanks to hard rocking local groups like The Aztecs, The Coloured Balls, The Masters Apprentices, Daddy Cool and Carson. At his first ever rock concert he witnessed The Coloured Balls and Sitting Bull, two bands that would spark his interest in the heavy sounds of rock and blues guitar. Sitting Bull were local heroes that would eventually play at Dom’s high-school social. This, along with a music/art program GTK which aired each week day for 5 minutes at 6:30pm on the ABC that offered many of the great bands of the day nationwide exposure - set Mariani on a journey of blues and heads-down, full-tilt boogie discovery.

Dom is currently out front of Datura4, who have just released their third album, 'Blessed Is The Boogie'.
