The Rochester Hotel, much loved provider of live music, trivia and oysters, will transform its upstairs space into a juke joint and furnish it with smooth blues sounds once a month.

From September 1 there'll be finger pickin' and wailin' on the first Friday of every month. The inaugural night will be headlined by Rattlin' Bones Blackwood, a one-man band who boasts a kick drum and a guitar. Supports will be Dan Dinnen, Frank Bell and Jess Parker rounding off a night of old-style rollicking blues.

The whole shebang will be fuelled by beer from nearby Bodriggy Brewing Co. and whiskey, so you'll be hearing and tasting the south — expect Deep South cocktails and a whale of a time. It kicks off from 7.30pm and entry is only five bucks.
