The Purple Felts
The Purple Felts are one of Perth's most fun and entertaining bands. Funk Rock with a touch of Ska - these guys know how to put on a show. In a short space of time they have become a solid unit and performed across a host of venues throughout Scotland. In 2015 they won Buskers' Battle of the Bands and performed live at Dundee Westfest. Other notable achievements include support slots with The LaFontaines, Dub Pistols, The Girobabies, Mickey 9s and Supa & Da Kryptonites. The Purple felts are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut EP which will be released mid 2016.
The Blackjack Blues Band
With the current line up formed in late 2010, The Blackjack Blues Band hail from the confines of Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. The line up consists of Jonny Lawrie on vocals and harmonica (plus acoustic and electric guitar), Rick Lawrie on bass, Jonny and Rick have performed at many blues venues throughout the UK over the last 10 years or so. Keeping it in the family, brothers Paul & Simon Harmer complete the line up on lead guitar and drums respectively. The Harmer Boys have played in various acts over the years, Paul in Edinburgh outfit Garner while Simon raised hell in the Juke Joint Boogie Blues Band. Drawing on many influences from as diverse a path as contemporary artists such as The Hoax to the established Blues kings such as Muddy Waters, Freddie King and Sonny Boy Williamson. It sees the band at times paying homage to the much loved Surrey blues Delta of the 60's and a nod to the chaps from the Oil City Island as well.
