This vibrant new band formed in January last year as a collaboration between Veronica Lily and King Fez (aka Gareth Hancox) over their mutual love of good time jump blues. Veronica Lily is an award winning Retro pin-up model as well as an established Burlesque dancer and experienced stage performer on the Perth scene. With this new musical project she gets to unleash her passion for swingin’ down home blues, wowing audiences with her sizzling vocal renditions of classic blues standards. 

Joining her on vocals and guitar is King Fez. Together they want to create a memorable show with the emphasis on dancing and good times. They love the blues from the 1950’s with a jump swing feel and a touch of rockabilly thrown in. Already they have captured the interest of audiences around Perth with highlighted performances at this year’s Fremantle International Street Arts Festival, The Perth Blues Club and a live performance on Perth’s RTR fm radio. Last year the band featured at ‘The Sou’West Festival’ and the Albany Rock ’n’ Roll Festival. Now the band can be seen regularly performing at well known blues venues around Perth.

The rest of the Rough House Imperials are Marlie Wanseth on guitar and slide. Marlie has honed her talents on blues guitar while playing the gig circuit in New York before arriving in Australia .  Joining the band on saxophone will be Laura Wilkins, a lover of funk, jazz and good time blues. Laura has played with many popular Perth bands and is a seasoned performer on the circuit.
