Our next Matcha date

Hello sunshine! Thanks for popping your his and byes along the gorgeous Preston Street in Como. And if you asked, yes, we are back on 16th September from 10:30am ’til noon! Come swing and matcha with us. 


This little post about last Saturday’s performance was taken from Polkadot’s instagram story. 

On the surface today’s gig with my uke duo Polkadot + Moonbeam was just like any other day. But …Then the wonderland of this lovely cafe burst into a celebration of canine and human friends alike, bouncing to the swing of our music. The Neighbour from the day spa next door brought his darling anaemic dog Oscar over and we witnessed how 🐶 worked the ladies 😌 More bright-eyed sunshine-grateful folks popped by later and we played with green-irised, blue-eyed little lady, who just learnt how to walk 4 months ago and was curious about 4-stringed instruments, crayons, squatting and my vintage shoes (starting early…). There was nothing common about today….

That Little Matcha Girl

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!
