ABOUT

***** Update as of April. 2024. We are looking for a lead vocalist and bass player. Previous vocalist/ bass members had to regrettably leave due to other commitments ***

The band and style of music idea came to life post our worldwide pandemic. Inspired by what original Rock n’ Roll did post war period in the 1950’s. Our 8 piece band aims to bring back the same fun, party, dance experience original rock n’ roll did with a 8 piece band lineup!

Designed to get people moving, connected, dancing and having fun with life, we are aiming to not only play great music but make it memorable.

We are mixing up Rock and Soul music as we feel it represents the perfect cocktail for that stomping party, dance music we enjoy playing. We also feel our range of music selected will capture a wide audience at weddings, private / corporate events and pubs.

We are aiming to cover the original Rock n soul artists like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder with equal mix of recent artists carrying the torch like Alabama Shakes, Teskey Brothers and Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, The Bamboos to name a few.

Please click or copy the below Spotify playlist which hopefully can give you a feel of the style we are going for with room to add songs (and or explore some originals) from committed members who join : )

Here is a YouTube link of the same playlist:

Our original members include a saxophonist, piano/ trumpet player and drummer. We have semi-professional and professional experience playing in various groups in previous years from rock, jazz, funk, soul, originals and ska.

We are ideally seeking 20’s-40’s yo range with final lineup to have a mix of ages and gender to help keep us relevant to our wide audience as we grow.

We are open to varied levels of experience, but most importantly those who are keen to work hard on the details to bring this style of music to life. Good communication is also key, so that together we can produce something special while keeping it fun. We would also require weekly commitment to rehearsals on the Gold Coast ( currently at Worongary) while we build up two strong sets that can cover future weddings, corporate functions and events.

We are aiming to do some trial sessions end of April / Early May 2014 .

So please reach out if the above intro, spotify playlist or music influences talk to you : )
