Originally a side project for three members of the popular Perth group “Murphy’s Lore”, The Scouts (or Wesleys), as they are more commonly known, bring their unique sense of irreverence, humour and musicality to their acoustic-based performances. The songs in their setlist highlight the immense vocal talents of the trio, as well as providing a welcome spin on popular classics that don’t often receive the stripped back acoustic treatment. You’ve never heard The Cure or The Human League quite like this…!
Comprised of Clayton Bolger on acoustic guitar, vocals and harmonica, Shaun Street on double bass and vocals and Kieran Murphy on drums and vocals, The Scouts have made a name for themselves in venues such as Eurobar, The Carine, The Boat, Rosie O’Grady’s, The Balmoral, The Como and The Vic as well as special events including open days and weddings.
“A lot of the songs that make up our repertoire have been requests from audience members over the years. We’ve been lucky to have the kind of loyal audiences that would come back week after week”, says Clayton.
The highly adaptable Wesleys have tailored their performances for everything from backpackers nights to relaxed Sunday sessions, weddings and corporate functions. With the folk and roots revival in full swing, it’s no surprise that this in-demand combo continues to go from strength to strength.
Wesley Goodlet Jamboree Scouts repertoire includes hit songs from CROWDED HOUSE, INXS, ROD STEWART, COLDPLAY, YOU AM I, ELTON JOHN, NEIL YOUNG, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, MEN AT WORK, TOM PETTY, THE BEATLES, JOHN LENNON, PINK FLOYD, POWDERFINGER, PETER GABRIEL, BEE GEES, TALKING HEADS, DAVID BOWIE, THE CURE, TRAVELING WILBURY’S and more!
