Rogers will also be joined by long-time friend and musical companion, guitarist Shane O’Mara.
Formally, Rogers was the front-man of Australian Rock n’ Roll band You Am I and has also released 10 studio albums – three of which have debuted at number one.
His records have also received ARIA awards alongside multiple platinum and gold for commercial sales.
Since You Am I, Rogers as released critically acclaimed solo albums as well as a number of collaborations with fellow musicians including Tex Perkins, The Temperance Union and The Bamboos.
Sooki Lounge owners and local couple Suzana Pozvek and Stephen Crombie said the venue is a place dedicated to being a space where the community can come and enjoy quality food, drinks and entertainment without the big price tag.
“Initially this we have dealt with just local artists but now we are looking at getting more acts from around Melbourne and nationally,” Ms Pozvek said.
