Rollin' On The River with Rick Steele - Sunday the 29th January 2017

Rick is actually the son of a preacher man and started his musical career singing in the church choir where his father preached. At 12 years of age Rick bought his first guitar for eight pounds after raising the money working at a local shop. His older brother John already had a guitar and, along with other kids from church, they taught themselves how to play…..the rest of Rick’s story reads like a movie script of a legendary blues man and the Decoy Crew are grateful that he still bases himself in Perth. So join us for Rollin’ On The River where two Perth icons merge for a few special hours on the Swan River.

Departures and Arrivals

Boarding for Rollin’ On The River will commence at 1:00 pm for departure at 1:45 pm. The Decoy will return to Mends Street Jetty, South Perth at 5 pm.
