Front Porch Serenaders + Kat Kinley & her Handsome Fellows

Front Porch Serenaders | 7.30pm

The Front Porch Serenaders are an acoustic blues quartet playing classic traditional country blues, folk blues and Australian blues with some Americana mixed in. These guys have known each other forever. Jeff played with Howie in the late 70s’/early eighties in the Jaywalkers and John with Howie in the mid eighties in Dave Hole and the Hellraisers. John and Jeff have also done a lot of gigs together in this and the previous century. After going to see Jeff play with the fantastic Suntones last year Howie asked him if he would like to form a side project playing acoustic folk and country blues. Jeff agreed and suggested an acoustic bass player. The name John Wilson came to their lips  simultaneously. John not only plays the acoustic bass but is probably the ‘go to’ bass guy in Perth for any style or genre. Later they added Phil Riseborough on drums to round out the sound they were striving for. The Front Porch Serenaders were born!
Jeff Barham: acoustic guitar, mandolin, Dobro and vocals. John Wilson: acoustic bass, electric bass, lagerphone. Howie Smallman: acoustic blues harp, acoustic guitar. Phil Riseborough: drums
