WAM has started programming entertainment every Wednesday evening over six weeks to celebrate the opening of Yagan Square and present Beats & Bites.

The Yagan Square precinct boasts a Market Hall of international cuisine and local produce, digital tower and canopy, amphitheatre, children’s playscape and a new inner city mall connecting William Street from the CBD to Northbridge.

The Struggling Kings
A Perth-based Indigenous band founded by brothers Luke and Daniel Riches. Hailing from One Arm Point, WA, the brothers have recruited a group of exceptional musicians to form the now 6-piece sensation, The Struggling Kings. Striking a blend of rock, acoustic and alternative fusions with a unique twist, the group is on its way to better things. With an inviting stage presence, the group offers full sounding, dynamic live performances. People from all ages and backgrounds can connect to the musical vibes, talented artistry and feel-good music the band offers. The band makes music that makes you forget your worries and move smoothly to the strong rhythm, sultry vocals, and cutting melodies of a band with its own impacting fingerprint.

Kat Wilson Trio
When Perth singer-songwriter Kat Wilson called on some friends to help with a gig, the good times on stage and mutual love for coastal blues prompted the three to write and record an EP in Bunbury. The trio consists of a bike mechanic, a high school teacher and a computer magician. After spending a few months discovering a sound in a warehouse full of things found on the side of the road and a ping pong table, the Kat Wilson Trio has reverb, crushed melodies and songs about love, politics and the suburbs to share around.

Belle Harvey
Belle is a woman for all seasons, whether mesmerizing audiences performing her own songs on guitar and lead vocals or as the perfect foil as a bassist and backing singer for others. That versatility and willingness to serve the music is what has made her into one of Western Australia’s most respected roots music players. Belle’s own songs are always deeply imbued with her infectious personality, whether that is on stage or in the recording studio. The spirit of the performance sits high in the mix as she sings about affairs of the heart and the mind with a voice that fits the folk and country world perfectly. There’s just the right amount of ache and yearning to give the songs a sense of honesty, pathos and verve.

DJ – L.J.S
All DJ’s performing at Yagan Square are members of WOMPP (Women of Music Production Perth). WOMPP is a platform for female, transgender and non-binary music makers to share and discuss music production.
