The Co-Op Club Proudly Presents

Sun June 1:  Tina Harrod & bandimage

Award winning vocalist & writer Tina Harrod will be playing some sweet, funky, soulful music from her own albums and from some of her favourite artists. Featuring Hamish Stuart on drums, Alex Hewetson bass & Gavin Ahearn on keys.

…”Harrod gives you goosebumps...it’s as if she’s singing about the last night of life..” John Shand SMH


Sun June 8:  Brendan Gallagher

Brendan Gallagher's a unique musical incarnation…singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, performer & troubadour of the world with the band Karma County over 6 albums. Brendan’s career spans over 30 years & he has played on recordings for artists from David Bowie to Kylie Minogue and produced many albums including Jimmy Little’s instant classic Messenger.

At The Co-Op on 8th June he'll be exploring new songs and old with drum legend Rob Souter (Dynamic Hepnotics, Slim Dusty) and young WA guitarist Doug Nairn.

Brendan Gallagher is a fine musician but what’s clear from his latest album Wine Island is his surpassing skill in the studio..pretty much single handedly crafting an album that is as good as anything you’ll hear this year..
..Jeff Glorfeld – SMH

Sun June 15:  The Sly Dogsimage

Annual Salvation Army Red Shield Doorknock Appeal

The Annual Salvation Army Red Shield Doorknock Appeal is coming up on the weekend of 24th & 25th May, 2014 and I need lots of enthusiastic helpers to help me collect on the Island & Bays.
This is a great opportunity for everyone (young, old and in-between) to get involved and
particularly for families to enjoy some healthy exercise together, while making a real difference to the lives of those less fortunate.
If you won't be home on the weekend of 24/25th May, you can always drop a donation into my mailbox this week or next when you're passing through (PO Box 566 at Church Point in an envelope marked with your name and address for a tax receipt), or pop your spare change (and maybe even a bit more) in the Salvos bucket on the ferry. Every little bit counts and all donations (big or small) will be greatly appreciated.


Please give me a hand and together we'll contribute to transforming the lives of over 1 million Australians this year.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
