A contemporary Perth entertainment agency that specialises in booking bands, singers and DJs with a retro and vintage inspired theme.


It’s time for us to face it. Perth is never going to get the White Christmas promised in the festive songs we all know so well. And it’s pretty darn hard to keep cool during the blistering summer months.

Luckily, duo Blue Christmas have got you covered by making sure that at least your Christmas entertainment is cool. Rhythm and blues kind of cool.

Frontmen Gary Benness (guitar and vocals) and Mark Turner (saxophone) draw on their wide-ranging experience with this musical form to bring you a delightfully groovy mix of Christmas-themed R&B classics and cleverly reimagined Christmas melodies, with the raw style and pure sophistication of this bygone but not forgotten era.

Having both played in various outfits around Perth (including Stratosfunk, Big Swing Orchestra and The Darling Buds of May), Gary and Mark channel the blues tradition and other members of its family tree – funk/soul, jazz, and R&B – carefully crafting each song until it oozes with as much cool as they can muster.

Blue Christmas is available to provide entertainment for a variety of Christmas functions.
