 Mal and his band present a night of the blues every month in the new classy ground floor Boardwalk Lounge.

Each month Mal invites a special guest vocalist to join him on stage.

Mal Eastick sure knows the blues, but his musical ascendancy and versatility make his live shows, as they ever were, the stuff of legend.


Mal has crafted a dynamic new show which draws on some of the highlights of his 30 year career as one of Australia’s leading guitar players. He is making up for the lost years with a vengeance. Mal has been widening his musical horizons, through honky-tonk and rock. He has created an acoustic duo with vocalist John Makey and has been performing in select gigs around NSW. He has resumed promotion of the re-released “Spirit” album and is passing on his talents and experience to guitar students of all abilities.

John was born in England, and migrated to Sydney, Australia with his family whilst very young. A big-voiced singer who grew up with a penchant for soulful blues-rock a la Paul Rodgers and Frankie Miller, John also sites influences as diverse as B.B.King, Otis Redding, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix to name a few.

John is a natural and committed vocalist who started out with northern Sydney band ‘The River Rats’ – 1984-1987 – followed by ‘Black Label’ – 1988-1995 – and ‘Mudcrab Soup’ – 1995-1997. It was with Mudcrab Soup that John was booked to open the show for Mal Eastick and his Band in December 1996

Mal was immediately taken and asked John to sing with him on his forthcoming tour. John became the vocalist in Mal’s band in March 1997, and a great musical combination was born.
