Bunbury will soon be the host of some of the biggest names in WA music as they make their way to the City’s newest brewery accompanied by regular DJ sets, bluesy Sunday sessions and a “full calendar” of comedy gigs. Just two months after it’s official opening, Froth Brewery Bunbury has already filled its events calender with the likes of The Grogans, Death by Denim, Katy Steele, The Waifs’ Josh Cunningham and Tea Party front man Jeff Martin as well as a slew of other comedy and community acts. Recently the host of acts from the South West’s Cinefest Oz roster as well as a sold out debut album show by Bunbury artists Great Gable, the bar hopes to stay true to feedback which — according to director Pete Firth — said Froth is “something that the town needed”. “To have shows sell out so early on in Froth’s Bunbury story feels awesome and the exact response we need to confidently book ahead a full calendar of awesome artists,” he said. “Such an encouraging response from a wide demographic of Bunbury — seems like the town is really keen for a variety of regular, high quality acts at their local brewery.” Acts from this year’s Lost and Found Festival will start Froth’s September line-up including international comedian Rory Lowe and tropical-themed DJ set the Coconut Carny’s through September 8 to 10. Perth windswept, indie-pop band Death By Denim will hit the Bunbury stage on September 30 following the soulful sounds of Bridgetown artist Tracey Barnett on September 25. Starting with renowned Perth artist Jordy Maxwell, on October 8, next month’s line-up will also include a performance by Melbourne surf-rock trio The Grogans on October 21. Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham, from ARIA award-winning folk rock band The Waifs, as well as Broome singer and song writer Tanya Ransom — joined by Will Thomas — are due to appear on October 12 and 14. Ending October’s line-up is a solo performance by Katy Steele from Perth alternative rock band Little Birdie on October 27 followed by Froth’s second instalment of its Comedy Shack. Performances will be broken up by Bow of the Boat DJ sets as well as regular free blues sessions from South West blues bands, which Mr Firth said were a great avenue for local blues musicians to perform in front of a crowd. “The DJs and vinyl DJs mixing from the Bow of the Boat set a great, subtle vibe that blends in well with the venue and allows a wide spectrum of musical influences and atmospheres to be explored,” he said. “(Froth) will also start having Open Mic nights from October, it’ll be good to offer a platform for local aspiring artists and musicians to hone their craft on.” Award winning Tea Party front man and Canadian musician Jeff Martin will kick off November’s performances on November 5 followed by Critically acclaimed Australian Indie band Hussy Hicks on November 10 and hard-hitting recycled percussion six-piece brass band Junkadelic on November 11. November will end with the acoustic sounds of newly popular Melbourne singer-songwriter Steph Strings as well as the third instalment of Froth’s Comedy Shack. Fusing the sounds of the Spanish guitar with “rock and roll” energy Sydney band Kallidad is due to perform in December along with Australian artists Abbe May and Grace Barbe. With top artists making their way to Bunbury and the return of popular music festival Groovin the Moo, live music has seemingly made a comeback to the regions, with Mr Firth highlighting the eagerness musicians had to play in regional cities. “For a lot of touring artists it is a new market in a large town that they’re keen to explore, and Bunbury’s geographical location is ideal,” he said.
