So I’ve noticed an interesting trend down at The Hen House this past year. Lots of bands forming. Rehearsing weekly. Working hard. Having a great time being in a band…But struggling to play that elusive 1st live show.

The reasons for this are common. Many bands don’t know how to book a gig. Haven’t got any contacts in the industry. Don’t know other bands to play with etc etc.

We want to change that….

I’m really excited to announce a new initiative down here at The Hen House.

We will be doing a series of Hen House sponsored shows called FRESH JAM. The idea of the shows is to give Hen House bands a leg up and get them playing their first shows around Perth.

For me personally playing live is the reason I play music. I want everyone to feel that connection between audience, creativity, energy and emotion. My hope is that after playing that 1st live show you will get the bug, just as I did all those years ago, and push yourself to play more and more live shows.

Our first ever Fresh Jam is happening;

Saturday the 25th of July at Perth’s newest live music venue THE BOSTON (205 James St, Northbridge) – $10 entry.

Graphic Characters will take on headline duties with awesome support from.

Rukkus (1st show)

Killing The Riff (1st show)

The Creative Lies (1st show)

*Your Band Here*

The great news is we have one spot remaining and we want your band. If you have played 5 shows or less then please tag us into this Facebook post so we know you are interested. We will pick a band to join us by this Friday the 17th of July.

Calling all Hen House crew to also come on down and support there fellow musicians.

Much Love
