John Godfrey re­turns to Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

LO­CAL per­former John Godfrey will de­light au­di­ences with his mix­ture of blues and jazz to­mor­row night at the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club.

Godfrey is a reg­u­lar per­former at the sail­ing club and one who al­ways leaves the crowd want­ing more.

Play­ing cov­ers from ad­mired artists George Ben­son, John Mayer and Nina Si­mone, Godfrey likes to mix up his sets with orig­i­nal tracks too.

After a stint in Perth where he per­formed reg­u­larly, Godfrey came back to the Whit­sun­days at the be­gin­ning of the year.

He is also a multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist play­ing the pi­ano, gui­tar, bass gui­tar and man­dolin.

Godfrey said lo­cal venues seemed to keep on book­ing him be­cause of his up-tempo bluesy style.

“They get a va­ri­ety of easy-lis­ten­ing mu­sic which is what you want when hav­ing din­ner,” he said.

“I just try to have fun and ex­press my true feel­ings with ev­ery show.”

Godfrey prides him­self on au­di­ences re­ceiv­ing qual­ity mu­sic, dif­fer­ent to that played in the main street of Air­lie Beach.

He is also a reg­u­lar at Banjo's Bar and Bistro, the An­chor Bar and Sor­rento’s Restau­rant and Bar.

Hav­ing per­formed for 25 years, he has no plans to slow down any time soon.
