Duke of George presents

Lucky Oceans and Dave Milroy

For this fun show, hot on the heels of the Jamba Nyinyani Festival and Freo Social Club, David and Lucky share their own unique songs with Talya Valenti on drums and Roy Martinez on bass.  

David, a Palyku man, is one of the key figures of WA’s Indigenous Art Renaissance, having been Artistic Director of Yirra Yaakin Theatre and a writer of award-winning plays, including ‘Windmill Baby’ and ‘Waltzing the Wilarra.’  Perth Festival presented his ‘Panawathi Girl’ at His Majesty’s Theatre in 2022, where it garnered 5 star reviews and won Best New Work’ in the WA Performing Arts Awards of 2023.

Many of David’s beautifully crafted songs are plucked from his plays and he has been a gifted and prolific writer of songs almost since he became a professional musician in the 70s.  Like his plays, his songs take an honest but generous, humorous and unique view of the human condition.

Lucky is a Grammy-Award winning steel guitarist and was the host and programmer of ABC RN’s beloved daily music show The Daily Planet for 21 years. His songs shine with the experience of a lifetime in music while they muse on birth, death, AI, ecology and poetry.

He and David will take you into the zone with their expansive versions of their songs with Lucky’s improvisatory pedal steel and Dave’s jokes adding to the fun and uniqueness of this special show.
