Jazz ‘n’ Blues Bash

Jazz ‘n’ Blues Bash
This Saturday 14 November at 8 pm Dr. Don’s Double Dose will share the stage
The Jacky Howlers and James Vann at the Jazz ‘n’ Blues Bash at Kiama Bowling Club. It will be a great night out for the Illawarra and surrounds who love their jazz and blues.

Angels Bayside Cafe

This Sunday 15 November
Dr. Don’s Double Dose will be back again at the Angels Bayside Cafe in Huskisson at the time slot of 2 - 5pm. Rob and I love singing and playing at this delightful outdoor cafe in glorious Jervis Bay and it’s worth the trip for any South Coast jivers. Nothing better than food, live music, drink with friends outside near the water. There’ll be some dancing on the footpath going on for sure.

Flame Lounge
On Saturday 21 November I’m back at Dee Why RSL for those in the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Looking forward to seeing some of the Sunday regulars on this Saturday night. Then it’s first Sunday of each month with the addition of third Friday of the month, re-starting in the New Year.

Sydney Blues & Roots Festival
Rob and myself enjoyed being part this years
Sydney Blues & Roots Festival last month. We did our thing in the Barracks Bar at Windsor Sebel Resort & Spa
They had acoustic blues then fireworks by the lake Friday night and then it was our turn. It’s always a pleasure for us to play to a blues loving crowd. Saturday afternoon was at Simon’s Cafe the best in town by the selection we sampled. Both venues said they would like us to come back.
