Launching their debut album ‘The Heel Turn’, Second Prize are here to give masculinity the Marie Kondo treatment.

With songs that inhabit the cracks in our ideas of what it means to be a man are beginning to show, Second Prize by turns evoke the sleazy disco of Pulp, the mid-life-crisis scuzz-rock of Grinderman-era Nick Cave, and the hangover-weary tenderness of Lambchop and Sparklehorse.

Led by John Palmer (The Raylenes, Georgia Fields band) and Dave Rogers (Klinger, Sophie Koh, Ben Lee) the band also features seasoned Melbourne pros Amy Bennett, Dave Kleynjans and Tim Reid.

Supports are the breezy, honey-voiced Duke Batavia, whose close harmony work takes its cues from 1950s and ‘60s indo-pop, and Magnets, and erstwhile classical pianist who threw it all in to create dazzling, sinister rock and pop.


Jess Aiezza, a rnb, neo-soul singer from Melbourne is exited to debut her covers band at The Workers Club. Passionate about soul and rnb music, she hopes to give you arrangements you haven’t heard before. Covering 90’s rnb icons Mary J Blige and Jill Scott to the neo-soul sensations H.E.R, Teyana Taylor and many more. Aiezza will take these iconic tunes and arrangement them in such a way that the crowd will have no excuse but to dance!

Accompanying Jess Aiezza on March 31st, will be popular Melbourne locals Jess Tyler and Hui. Performing an eclectic mix of originals and covers, it is a show not to missed!
