Get ready for the great Lucky By the Ocean concert series, featuring Lucky Oceans and friends, at Fremantle’s Kidogo Arthouse on Bathers Beach, 10 Wednesdays and 2 Sundays  from November to January

Lucky Oceans is a name synonymous with music in Western Australia. One of the most influential steel guitarists of his generation he has played with big names in Australian music across jazz, folk, blues and country and the much-loved Zydecats in Fremantle.

He brings his special brand of musical magic to Kidogo Arthouse, on the shore of the Indian Ocean, on Wednesday evenings and two Sundays from November to early January.

Wednesday Nov 14 – Rose Parker – Immerse yourself in the compelling songs and stories of leading singer songwriter Rose.

Wednesday Nov 21 – David Hyams with the Miles to Go Trio – acclaimed producer plays his own Irish-inflected pieces with Stuart Paterson, Manoli Vouyoucalos and Dan Bright on guitar and dij.

Wednesday Nov 28 – Gemma Turvey – Pianist/composer Bundanon Trust Artist in Residence brings her pervasively expressive jazz/classical Palm Court sounds to the Sea, with cello and Lucky.

Wednesday December 5 – Fiona Rea Music EP launch with Bryan R Dalton supporting and with Lucky Oceans, Tristen Parr and Jon Edwards playing with the marvellous Fiona.

Sunday December 9 – Jeff Lang and Lucky Oceans – When Lucky heard that local luthier Ross Coole was making a guitar for Jeff, he cooked up an idea to have Jeff come over here and pick it up.  Jeff is one of the world’s greatest guitarists but is also a fine singer and songwriter.

Wednesday December 12 – Barrelhouse Juke Joint Blues from Jessie James Gordon, Paul Gioia, Bill Lawrie and Lucky bringing you more blue songs of joy from the Dirty Thirties.

Wednesday December 19 – After a long hiatus, this will be only the second performance this year by the Dave Brewer Lucky Oceans Quartet with Karl Florisson and Ric Eastman with some new material written especially for the occasion.

Sunday December 30 – Not a Wednesday! But we had to fit a Hawaiian Sundowner in, especially because Mr. Aloha -Sam Lemann – is in town. As an alternative to a try hard NYE, join Howie Morgan, Alistair Peel, Lucy Lemann, Lucky and the setting sun to celebrate the timeless kitsch of the Islands.

Wednesday Jan 2 – We’re working Sam Lemann hard and getting him together with his boyhood partner in crime Adam Gare and Lucky Oceans to recreate the swinging sounds of the Nansing Quartet minus the annoying name.

URBAN INFILL DEMANDS NOISE PROTECTION MEASURES

 

One of only two agenda items for the Strategic Planning and Transport Committee on Wednesday will be the community consultation paper put out by the WA Planning Commission-WAPC about noise in entertainment areas such as Northbridge, and the question if Fremantle Council should consider asking the WAPC to include the Fremantle CBD in the trial.

Medium and high density urban infill has seen a rise in complaints in recent years from residents who are not happy with the noise from entertainment venues and transport, but the entertainment industry believes it is not fair that the onus should only be on them and that it should be shared with developers of new residential buildings, which should be required to put better noise insulation measures, such as double glazing and thicker glass in their developments.

I remember many years ago that when the new apartments opposite Clancy’s were built that it only took one week before the first complaint was made about live music there, although the tavern had been having regular live concerts for many many years.

In Fremantle where we are going to see a glut of new residential apartments and hotel rooms, combined with new taverns and bars, it is essential to also protect the livelihood of the hospitality industry and demand new buildings that have better noise protection for their users.

Yes, there is still a bit of rain around and the wind is quite strong and crisp, but I am optimistic that it will all improve over the next few hours to ensure that we can all enjoy the Fremantle Arts Centre Sunday Music courtyard session.

Come and listen to the unique brand of ‘Americana’ and great vocals and free-style bluegrass of Sally&George, who came all they way from Nashville to perform in Freo.

The cafe, bar and pizza bar will all be open and the print award exhibition is still on display.

The concert is on from 2-4pm and is free!

WILL ST JOHN’S CHURCH BUY VICTORIA HALL?

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, fly by night club, Uncategorized by freoview on August 31, 2018

 

Interesting to read in the Fremantle Herald today that St John’s church is considering buying the historic Victoria Hall from the City of Fremantle.

According to the Chook St John’s would consider leasing the hall to the Fly by Night club.

I doubt though that the church will be as generous to the musicians club as the City of Fremantle has been. CoF waived over $ 80,000 in outstanding rent the Fly never paid.

NO WORRIES ABOUT NOT PAYING RENT IN FREMANTLE

 

There is something quite endearing about the naivety that Fremantle Council displays on occasions, as was the case last night when allowing the Fly by Night club to stay in Victoria Hall three months longer, so now they do not have to vacate the premises at the end of August, and the for sale signs at the beautiful heritage building will have to wait a while.

One Councillor said that the Fly had offered to pay $ 3,000 rent per month, so supposedly that was a good thing. But there is no guarantee whatsoever that the musicians club will actually pay that rent. One of the reasons they have to vacate Victoria Hall is that Council had to write off thousands of dollars in outstanding rent, and they have had financial help from Council previously.

But no one talked about a bank or personal guarantee, so that there is certainty the rent will actually be paid!

That is nothing new in Fremantle where Council in the past financially bailed out the Deckchair theatre company, Kulcha, and artists up at Arthur Head. Sign a lease with Freo City and just stop paying rent and it will become an unrecoverable debt. I hope Enkel and DADAA are not reading this!
