Tex Perkins is undeniably a standout in Australian music. His career includes albums and tours with Don Walker and Charlie Owen, and the TNT project with Tim Rogers. He has also performed as frontman for iconoclastic 90s band The Cruel Sea, and gritty pub rockers The Beasts of Bourbon.With his rock, blues and ‘musician’s musician’ credentials nailed, he also went on to perform the music of Johnny Cash in the theatre production The Man in Black, which won him critical acclaim and a new generation of fans.
“Tex has the swagger, presence and indomitable attitude that comes from years of fronting some of Australia's most intense and spirited rock'n'roll bands. His take-no-prisoners approach to performance comes with the sensibility of an artist committed to the subtle (and often unsubtle) nuances of his craft. Throw in an astonishing voice full of power and depth, mix it with a dry and sardonic sense of humour and what emerges is the reason there is only one Tex Perkins”. (Stuart Coupe.
Matt Walker’s career spanning over 20 years has confirmed Matt as a force on any instrument he chooses to play. Matt has written, recorded and performed with an eclectic bunch of outstanding artists including Mick Harvey, Rob Hirst and Jim Mogine (both from Midnight Oil), Archie Roach, Kim Salmon and Ashley Davies...the list goes on. Matt stands out as a singer, songwriter and guitarist, he's touched by greatness.
Don’t miss this brief opportunity to see Tex and Matt Walker perform their compelling new swamp blues material in a killer line up including Steve Hadley on bass and Roger Bergodaz on drums.
