Spoons Perry to rock Las Vegas

Deb “Spoons” Perry performs at a local Bridgetown function last year. BRIDGETOWN farmer, musician and grandmother of four Deb “Spoons” Perry, is heading to America at the end of the month, following an invitation to play at a huge event in Las Vegas.
Perry has become a famous and well loved local personality, following her huge success in making it to the finals of Australia’s Got Talent in 2008.
Since then she has jetted all over the country and around the world to perform at many events as well as performing for locals at the Blues at Bridgetown and the Boyup Brook Country Music Festivals.
Perry is very excited and looking forward to the latest opportunity, where she will be performing in Las Vegas at North America’s largest Exhibition of Trade Show and Event Products and Services. While there she will perform for a company called ‘Spoon Exhibit and Events’.
“It is very exciting to be chosen to perform in Vegas to help promote this great big company,” Perry said. “One of their employees was looking on Facebook, found my page and it all evolved from there.
“They want their exhibit to look cool, their theme is cool and they think I am cool, so now I have to portray coolness!
“I will be doing four performances a day for three days, so I have been very busy working out what songs they may like and learning some of the songs they have requested. They have asked me to do many songs including, ‘Bang Bang’, ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Happy’ so I have to learn a few new moves and some shuffling skills. I am hoping my Grandson will help me with the shuffling.
“It is a little nerve wracking at the moment,” Perry said.
“I Spoke to the CEO of this company and he told me that this is a big event for them and he said – `Don’t forget Deb, Los Angeles is a big stage.’”
Perry’s interest in spoons developed some 40 years ago when she met a guy in North Fremantle who taught her how to play the spoons.
“I met a guy called Danny in The Stoned Crow Wine bar in North Fremantle, when listening to a jug band, Red Rocket and the Thunderbolt Scramblers,” she said.
“I already had a love for percussion thanks to my dear brother Richard, who brought home an old drum kit for me when I was 15 years old.
“Who would have thought that playing spoons would evolve to all of this.”
