You might have noticed a pretty little cafe along Preston Street in Como, South Perth. A bright little street overlooking the waters just perched atop a gentle slope.
P+M’s Winter burrow last Sat
Polkadot + Moonbeam had the pleasure of playing there last week. And in a week of cold wet days, that morning was sublime – sunshine, matcha and ukulele jazz. We also made some new friends: Anabel and family (Daddy, Violet, Osi, Coco) and company, Lim, our new greyhound pal, and of course the proud owner of the cafe. The space is cosy and just a perfect nook for us to rest our paws over matcha and jazz improv.
The highlight of the gig for me was Nat Cole’s LOVE (and the rock ending, teeth, grit and grind… 😅). You can spot that funny video on our Instagram (apugnosedream). But we also loved playing our light instrumentals over Jobim, Jimmy Van Heusen…classics for the Saturday morning crowd.
Light instrumentals for a breezy sunny morning
The matcha was beautiful with genmai in them – like magic drops of texture and earth in the smooth creamy bittersweet. Moonbeam’s mocha was a dream 💛.

Thank you Little Matcha Girl for having us. Thank you all. We hope to see you all soon!
Ps: don’t forget to check our Instagram and YouTube for new clips 💛
’til we next brunch …
Polkadot + Moonbeam is so excited to be playing at the gorgeous Sandalford Winery as part of the Swan Valley Wedding Open Day on 2nd July 2017. Find us at the rustic and romantic Oak Room, or the courtyard adjacent, popular spots for a brilliantly intimate wedding. Devoted to answering your queries and crooning to you from 10:00am – 4:00pm. ✨
It was as Belle Classic Limos said, “a fun day for all”. We wanna say special thank yous to Say Cheese Towers, That Little Gelato Cart, Anthea Auld Photography, Touched By Angels for all the love and for being such amazing neighbouring vendors at The Oak Room, Sandalford Winery. We love your work. So many beautiful couples came home through with your different proposal stories. Our highlight of the day was S&K’s wedding proposal story. Didi did an impromptu jazz version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’, a song K proposed to S with. It was all fun, love and lots of heart.
Over champagne and the wonderful Sandalford Shiraz in the after-party, we had the privilege of speaking with other vendors we worked with but never had the pleasure of meeting personally. Owl and Bear are so cute and talented. Everyone had a story to their small business and it made us very encouraged, inspired and warmed at heart.
I’m sentimental, haven’t you noticed? Moonbeam keeps me grounded, and my heart safe when it wants to leap to the moon with his overlooking from the blue. Bless his soul.
Thank you Sandalford Winery for having us play at the Swan Valley Wedding Open Day 2017. We learnt lots, and lots, and lots.
Before we leave, don’t forget lovely couples, our special promo for Sandalford attendees end on 1st August 2017. We look forward to celebrating your special day, thank you for trusting us with your love stories. Precious. 💛
We leave you with this lovely shot of us by Melissa’s Photography. Thank you!
“As we walked up the music was the first thing I heard and I thought – wow, this sounds like the best party in the world! The music was really important to us, and we absolutely loved your unique sound and it truly made our day. Thanks so much for making last Saturday one of the best days of our lives.” – Annaliese + Joshua
Congratulations to the lovely couple Annaliese + Joshua! Such a privilege to play for your beautiful wedding. We are still buzzing with excitement from being part of all that loveliness, playing for your cocktail set before the super-fun and happy bridal party entrance… 😉
P.S Art Space at Fremantle turned out to be one of the most creative spaces we have played for weddings at in W.A! And not without the lovely and very talented Jessica Butcher, of course. What an eye for art. We will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Understanding Flora – Cactus with pink bud – all heart
With a touch of pink, an industrial art space with character could also start breathing with warm, bubbly love. Stylist Jess confesses it can be haaard convincing a groom to have pink seats.. but our groom was just too cool to refuse! We wish the lovely pair a beautiful start to a wonderful life together as husband and wifey!!
