It’s A Family Affair with Lord Esme, MVSHROOM PEOPLE and the Sticker Club

Sunday 26th May 2024 at Petersham Bowling Club     Tickets


It’s A Family Affair is back for a big show before winter hits. Hosted by The Sticker Club, this fun afternoon of music has long been one of the most popular events held at the Petersham Bowling Club over the last twelve years. And the good times keep on coming!

This time around we have self-proclaimed ‘cardigan pop’ band LORD ESME headlining. They have recently released their debut album A Nice Sit Down and this endearing three-piece will be playing songs from it and some new ones. Saxophone included.

MVSHROOM PEOPLE are too young to drive a car, too young to vote and too young to go on Year 8 Camp but not too young to play a set of original art-pop, what someone described as: “they sound like they are from New York City, where they’d be huge!”

Opening up the afternoon is THE STICKER CLUB, who will be playing songs from both their albums (released by ABC Kids) so make sure you get to the Petersham Bowling Club early to see them strut their unique brand of rock’n’roll for all ages! They have a new single out “Way Up High” so we’ll be setting up the big screen and showing the video for the song PLUS all the other action-packed and fun-filled film clips that The Sticker Club have made over the last two years.

FREE for children and $10 for adults. From 2pm to 5.30pm.

Playing times:

The Sticker Club film clips 2.15-2.30pm



LORD ESME: 4.40pm

new single from THE STICKER CLUB – Way Up High

Take a nostalgic trip to your childhood with The Sticker Club’s newest whimsical and playful tune. “Way IUp High” sets the scene for an afternoon well spent among the trees. With a sweet melodic pace you’ll be clapping, singing, swaying and shimmy shimmying to the top in no time! An imaginative song for all ages about life’s simply pleasures.

Written in the small coastal village of Currarong on the south coast of NSW when the band were down there a couple of years ago celebrating drummer Alison’s birthday, “Way Up High” sees The Sticker Club lay down their electric guitars and drums and pick up the ukulele, slide banana guitar and melodica.

The song also features special guest Jess Ciampa, one of Australia’s greatest percussionists, play the ever-important congas and assorted shakers throughout the song. Like the two previous Sticker Club albums, “Way Up High” was recorded by Tim Kevin at Tempe Studio over the previous summer. Tim also sings along with Nellie in the third verse, which is about a cubby house, reviving his co-vocals that he sang on the Sticker Club track “Cubby House”. It’s the little things!
