On March 21st 2010, The Perth Blues Club held a benefit gig for Paul Felton, who is seriously ill & requires imported medication not available on the PBS system.
While Paul is a renowned blues/rock guitarist, he is best remembered for his 10 year stint in Perth’s massive ‘no holds barred’ rock band, “Jets” with Peter Dean (vox/bass), Johnny Oungar (drums) and Steve Garde (guitar).

The benefit night was an outstanding success and one that proved what the West Coast Music fraternity can do when we all come together for one of our own.
While the night was successful in raising funds to help Felts, the cost of the medication to treat the condition is ongoing. To continue the support of our West Coast Guitar God and great friend to many, Procopy (with the assistance of West Coast Music Shack & Greenehouse Productions along with extra footage supplied by various friends) has put together a DVD of select performances from the benefit show, including the almighty and rare 20 minute jam with Matt Taylor, Paul Felton, John Meyer & Rob Riley and The Bob Patient Band on stage together.
The DVD is available through the Perth Blues Club.
You can help to support our Perth legend, Paul Felton, by purchasing these never to be repeated memories of a lifetime. Support a friend in need.
Performers on the night: Dave Hole, Matt Taylor, Lindsay Wells, John Meyer, The Bob Patient Band, Rob Riley (Rose Tattoo), Hells Bells, Pete Romano & The Gators, Cyclone Tracey, Ivan Zar, Empire Blues, Rick Steele, Sue Bluck, Gerard Maunick, Simon Cox, Clayton Black, Izin, Cindy Stevens
