Sidestreet is fast becoming Mordialloc’s newest hidden treasure and now featuring live boutique artists performing every Sunday…everybody’s talking!  If you’re after some tasty food to share with friends, accompanied by a glass of regional Victorian wine, boutique beer or  house-made infused vodkas, then Sidestreet is right up your alley! 

Sunday July 19th Rick Varlet makes his way back to Sidestreet for an encore performance ahead of other renowned local acts on weekly rotation including Tim Morrison, Sarah Rzek and Chris Doheny.

Growing up on the Peninsula Rick Varlet had entrenched himself in the local music industry from an early age. By his late teens Rick was already teaching guitar at Blue Note College of Music, had a string of band projects under his belt, and was the envy of his peers. Thanks to his natural ability across multiple instruments, at a level far exceeding his years, Rick was renown as our local ‘musician’s musician’.

It wasn’t long before Rick came to the attention of the larger industry, jamming with visiting international artists like George Benson, and soon becoming the target of one of Australia’s longest running touring band concepts, Victorian Police Rock Band Code One.

Rick’s absence from our local stages was missed by many, momentarily refilled with an occasional Code One appearance at local festivals and a string of sentimental reminders through performances on TV shows like the Midday Show and Blue Ribbon Appeals. Until now! With the curtain closing recently on Code One, and after 18 years as the boy in blue, Rick is back to being Rick Varlet, musician, vocalist, entertainer.

An ‘artist first class’ on acoustic guitar and a silky smooth vocal, Rick’s own unique blend of pop, jazz and R&B to known classics like Hallelujah and Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow will be sure to touch your heart.

Side Street is located at 501 Main Street Mordialloc and offers everything you need for a cosy kick back or a winter wine Sunday 19th July with Rick Varlet from 4pm.  Sidestreet welcomes Sarah Rzek the following week Sunday July 26.
