Mandurah’s small yet trendy cafe, Mataya Eatery, will play host to two accomplished musicians from Byron Bay on November 17.
The east coast touring duo Dusty Boots and Adam Harpaz have a lot to offer locals during their gig at the Sholl Street cafe.
The pair have been making waves in 2017, bringing their coastal roots-folk music to the US, Canada and New Zealand as well as several hugely successful Australian tours and festival appearances.
Touring Western Australia through out November the duo have lined up a run of shows to wrap up their year, including one of which has already sold out.
Dusty Boots, aka Jonny Dustow, is a one man funky roots show with sax, guitar loops and vocals.
Dustow’s performs solo gigs as well as full blown band show.
With a love of exploring and adventure Dustow now lives in a van and tours in and around Australia playing music.
He said he was thrilled to be heading back to Western Australia after a successful tour in the state last year.
Dustow said himself and Harpaz hit it off straight away after meeting at a east coast music festival.
“Our music goes well together. Our music just suits each other,” he said.
During performances the duo often feature in each others set.
Dustow said West Australian’s seemed to appreciate independent acts, especially those travelling a long way to perform.
“We’ve found some awesome music lovers here who really appreciate original music,” he said.
“We’d love to make it an annual trip.”
Harpaz is a multi-instrumentalist, indie-folk musician who busks during the day, performs at venues during the night and surfs in between.
The Byron Bay based singer-songwriter paints pictures of peaceful coastal living through heartfelt performances and lyrical integrity.
