We started on a wing and a prayer in December of 2001.
A group of Roots music fans whose regular watering hole was the Williamstown RSL pooled together $50 each to put on a gig featuring the Hornets. With the blessing of the RSL management we put the word around Town that blues music was coming to the West. Up until that time we had to travel on the road and over the river to catch quality live music.
It was a gamble but it worked and gave us the confidence to build on that day’s success. Here we are years later an Incorporated Club hosting the best roots musicians in the land and also getting calls from international touring artists who want to come Way Out West. As the great Paul Kelly song goes ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’.
We now find ourselves an integral part of the Roots music scene. We are so proud to have been able to create a much needed venue in the West. If you have not been to the Club then please come down and check us out, we guarantee to make your day a good one.
