A little bit of jazz & a whole lot of country rock.....!


Can you see it, who does he remind you of? He made me think of John Lennon and like JL he was incredibly charismatic. On a warm sunny Sunday afternoon we sat and listened to The Overflow Trio and Justin Walshe Folk Machine that's Justin above, one of many such free afternoons scheduled in the Northbridge Sunday Piazza Live Autumn Season 2013. They sang the saga of the ill fated Burke and Wills expedition way back in 1860, very entertaining, the crowd relaxing on bean bags loved it.. I wasn't the only person taking photos!
A little further down James Street at the Perth Cultural Centre and a bit more uptempo a very cool Salsa group, didn't get their name unfortunately but they had the crowd up and dancing at times, the artist in the collage was just off to the side painting in time to the beat! I have heard people say that Perth is a bit quiet, not much going on..what do you think? I say it's all out there, just get out and find it.  Mid way through the week already, happy Wednesday, take care.....

  10. Wow, I like those outdoor activities!
    I am sure everybody enjoyed very much, especially that painter, he seemed almost danced up to catch up a brush stroke. :)

  12. This sounds like a great way to spend a fall afternoon. Music, people, and a little bit of visual art to liven things up. It looks like the weather was perfect for the days activities.

  16. Good crowd shots, Grace. He kind of reminds me of Joaquin Phoenix when he was doing that falling off the rails hoax thing for a movie some years ago.

  21. You worked hard on this post! John Lennon was my first impression, too. He will be safer if he stays in Perth and doesn't move to New York.
