Event Details

The Porch Dwellers take their name from the fact that rehearsals are held on their drummer's front porch, workshopping their catchy music. Having scored their first gig at Bennetts Lane on insert gig details, The Porch Dwellers will be rehearsing indoors until further notice. This new project will showcase ex-Sydney musician Ben Hauptmann (guitar), who has been steadily establishing himself on the Melbourne scene.  2nd place winner at the 2007 Wangaratta Festival of Jazz National Jazz Guitar Awards, toured nationally in October with the Sydney-based band The alcohotlicks.
He is also a member of the country/rock outfit 'bob', and recently premiered an off-shoot group with Chris Hale, Andrew Keegan and Julian Banks.  For this collaborative unit his colleagues are bassist Sam Anning and drummer Rajiv Jayaweera. They will perform mainly originals compositions.
