Sunday 24th August @ The Roxbury will be host to a very special evening of folk, rock, political, satirical & just plain great music & poetry.

Folk icon, master of the satrical & lyrical parody, singer-songwriter, poet, well known busker, tin-whistle player - John Dengate joins us for a very rare performance.

The doors open @ 6:00 pm with a nothing charge of $8!

  • yummy $7 roasts are on offer on Sundays!
  • under 18s are allowed to check out the show, as long as they are accompanied by a guardian over 18.
Kicking off the night, we have the notorious Rex Havoc singing a few of his classics, playing some spoons, perhaps some guitar & maybe even doing a few of his own satirical works.

Then we have the wonderful Ken McLean playing his great acoustic rock originals & possibly a cover or 2

John Dengate then takes to the stage for a set featuring some of his best known songs, a few newies plus some poetry and if we're lucky we may even be treated to some whistle.

The Lurkers

Mr Dengate is followed by Sydney 3 piece political rabble rousers The Lurkers aka Pretty Boy Floyd, Desert Rat Shorty & the Wayfaring Stranger rounding up the night to leave us feeling . . . well folked!
