Returning for its second year, November 16’s Fluid Fest at Daveys in Frankston will again showcase great Australian beers, ciders, wines and bourbon, as well as offer up an equally appetising live music menu for the day, from 11am.

Kicking off the day will be one of the Peninsula’s most well known and loved blues/jazz performers, Rob Papp, who has 40+ years of experience in the local and international music scene. Having studied under the likes of Robin Ford and recorded with the late great Tommy Tedesco, Papp has spent many years passing his knowledge on to the youth of the Peninsula, teaching at Blue Note College of Music in Frankston and performing around town solo and with his band ‘Blueshead’.

Following Papp will be Daveys regular favourite Matt Bradshaw, who has been performing Sundays in recent times and played last year in a duo format for the inaugural festival. Bradshaw began his music career just after high school, quickly being whisked away overseas to tour as a lead vocalist/guitarist for three years and over 1000 gigs. Having travelled in the same circles – and often performed alongside – acts like UB40, America, KISS, John Farnham, Jon Stevens and more, he’s also got eight CD releases to his credit as well as a publishing deal with Sony music. A born entertainer, he’ll set the perfect mid-afternoon live music vibe, alongside the festival festivities.

Rounding out the day will be Scott Hunter Duo, otherwise known at times as ‘Round Town’. Along with duo partner Lukey ‘Harpo’ Kehoe on harmonica and vocals, Hunter’s guitar/stomp box blues and roots style has always ensured full dancefloors and discerning music lovers are both satisfied. Able to inject energy as well as craft distinctly unique versions of covers classics, the two have only recently reunited after eight years of solo performance each and are ready to bookend the Fluid Festival with a bang.

Each act will be performing at least two sets, with Rob Papp starting at 11am, Matt Bradshaw playing from 2pm and Scott Hunter Duo taking the stage at 5pm. Don’t miss the Fluid Festival at Daveys Hotel, 510 Nepean Highway, Frankston on November 16. For details, head to or
