Talented to rock out club

A LINE-UP of Lidcombe musicians will be joined by special guest performers at the Lidcombe Bowling Club this Sunday, from 3pm to 7pm.

Promoter Greg Reeves says this month’s Sunday Session will feature a little bit of everything, starting with acoustic roots and blues and wrapping up with a high energy finish.

“You’ll be sure to need your dancing shoes,” he said.

“Mike Wheaden and friends will open the show with some surprising renditions of well-known favourites like Jambalaya from Hank Williams and Dead
from the Rolling Stones.”

Reeves, who will play acoustic guitar, with Graeme Robbins on bass and Grant Ngaira on Harmonica, says Mike also includes some original songs about Lidcombe and adapts others to sing about the local characters, like the ‘Werewolves of Lidcombe’.

“You’ll have to come and have a listen to see who he’s singing about,” Reeves added with a laugh.

Next up will be The Night Trippers, with a focus on on the 60s and their own brand of psychedelic rock, showcasing both originals and covers from the era.

“As part of our efforts to nurture young talent in Sydney’s west, the Bowling Club and I are also proud to present a young guitar virtuoso, Aiden Mansell, and his young band,” Reeves said.

“They all fresh out of high school, and perform flamenco inspired riffs through to original music inspired by Hendrix and Joe Satriani.

“These guys have been rehearsing hard and I can’t wait to see what they can do. They should give the old musos a run for their money and may well steal the show.”

Finally, after recording at the Keynote Studios in Auburn over the past month, The Lidcombe Effect will close the show and debut some great new tunes.
