Regional Arts Development Central West NSW

Live & Kicking Ausmusic month at The Broadway Hotel Parkes

Gracey Denham-Jones

Our Live & Kicking gigs bring orginal tunes to Parkes every Sunday in November. Catch Cletis Carr and his trio, Raptor County, Twiggy, Smith & Jones, Gracey Denham-Jones and Jaffer.

The ‘Broady’ has undergone a number of changes over the past two years and all for the better, especially their dedicated spaces for live music.

Now with their regular music program Friday to Sunday they’re becoming the home of live music in Parkes.

This Ausmusic month across November Arts OutWest in conjunction with The Broadway hotel invites you to celebrate with original live music made and played in the Central West for Sunday Live & Kicking Lunchtime Sessions.

You’ll be able to enjoy some Americana Blues served up by Cletis Carr and his trio on Sunday 6 November from 12noon as they perform songs from his latest album ‘Trouble & Me’.

On Sunday 13 November enjoy Raptor County, a 4-piece band who know how to rock with a touch of country blues singing their songs about life from a regional perspective. They’ll have Parkes local Twiggy opening for them singing his acoustic pop tunes from his ‘Now & Then’ release plus some crisp new tunes.

Sunday 20 November Central West duo Smith & Jones perform their finely crafted songs with their gorgeous harmonies. Opening their show will be Gracey Denham-Jones. A Parkes local you’ll hear her like you’ve never heard her before, performing her own songs including ‘Wait’ as featured on the ‘While The World Waits’ compilation album.

Finishing off the month in a big way with their good time funk n soul vibe is the dynamic duo Jaffer. Featuring the big bass sound of Luke Ferguson who has toured nationally and appeared at major festivals including Blues Fest, Woodford folk festival, Splendour in the Grass. Twiggy will be opening the session with more of the new tunes he’s been cooking up in his home studio.

Come and enjoy some new music and experience local culture at your local. All gigs are free and start at 12noon.
