SUNDAY 23Rd May – The Co-Op Club welcomes back DADDY LONGLEGS & THE SWAMP DONKEYS renowned for their unpredictable and raucous live show.

From the murky depths of the Balgowlalooga swamp, rises the smoky mud stained rhythms of the Swamp Donkeys. Riding astride the donkeys like a golf ball balanced on eight toothpicks is the auburn vagabond known as Mr Daddy Longlegs. He can be heard growling his ‘Gut Butter Blues’ throughout the urban forest. When these creatures of musical madness step together, the sound of their march is like an infusion of blues/rock/rambles. After journeying across vast landscapes, Daddy Longlegs & The Swamp Donkeys have returned home to share their debut single ‘Salty Sea Dog’.

The howling vocals of Aaron Houston aka Daddy Longlegs bellows an ancient tale accompanied by the wailing harmonica of Jay McKay, driving bass grooves of Felix Akurangi and thumping drums of Steve de Wilde.

Their journey so far has taken them to various festivals and venues throughout the distant corners of Australia, winning the Perisher Peak Festival competition for undiscovered treasure and sold out performances at the legendary Manly Fig, The Shack along with festival appearances at Illawarra Folk, Love Culburra and Manly Jazz.

The Waterfront Café’s Co-Op Club presents some of the finest live music North side of the bridge from 3.30pm every Sunday.
