Couple of Knocks on Dungeon Door

Who: Bruce Mathiske
Where: The Dungeon
When: Friday August 6, 1999

THE DUNGEON at Adamstown Uniting church hall gets hotter and hotter with not one but two gigs this month, including guitar-instrumentalist BRUCE MATHISKE on Friday night.

The July monthly Dungeon gig featuring FDD - the originals-only version of the FUNKY DO DAS - attracted a record number of 115 patrons.

Friday night's show, in the intimate surrounds of the all-ages, coffee shop-vibe Dungeon, is a rare chance to see Mathiske up close and personal.

Mathiske launched his latest CD NIGHTMARE at the Newcastle Workers Club in June.

An international performer playing overseas six months of the year Mathiske, a Belmont local, has a growing national profile.

Tickets to hear Mathiske's fusion of rock, classical and jazz styles are $10. Seating will be numbered. =4961-5955.

On Thursday night Melbourne/Sydney contemporary jazz outfit ERNIE will perform featuring JUSTIN PETHERICK-SZWAJA on tenor and soprano saxophones, MICHAEL CURRIE on double bass and GLEN WILSON on drums.

Petherick-Szwaja has performed with jazz, fusion, rock, blues, funk and 'contemporary art' groups, including HOT PUDDING. Currie is a composer who has worked with IMOGEN'S DIARY, THE LUCKY STAR BAND and STIR. Wilson has played with MAX SHARAM, TANIA KERNAGHAN and WENDY MATTHEWS. TE
