Miss Peaches & Goulburn

Miss Peaches in Newtown
This month Dr. Don’s Double Dose are playing at a bar and eatery in Newtown that has the look and feel of some of the blues joints Rob and I saw while we were in the southern states of the USA. It offers great spicy southern cooked treats and some unique drinks. There’s plenty of room for dancing and comfy lounges as well. They have dance classes on Wed and Thursdays too. We’ll be playing our danceable good time blues from 8pm Thursday 12 Feb. It’s upstairs at the Malborough Hotel on Missenden Rd, Newtown See website for menu and drinks.

Australian Blues Music Festival in Goulburn
This weekend Double Dose will be doing their thing at the, not to be missed, Australian Blues Music Festival in Goulburn Fri 6 and Sat 7 Feb. This is one of the best cities for a music festival as there are so many great venues all within walking distance with nearly all of the shows free.
Check the website for this years great lineup and all the information you need including accommodation.

On Sunday the 22nd of February we travel south of Nowra to play the groovy Angle Bayside Cafe in Huskisson at 3.30pm. There will be no show if it’s raining.
We’ll at
Central Hotel, Shellharbour City the night before. We are there on the 3rd Saturdays of each month this year.

Coming up in March
on Saturday the 7th we will be doing two shows at Kiama Jazz and Blues Festival.
