WHAT'S HOT THIS WEEK
Ladies and gentlemen, step aside and make way for the good ole days. Yes, the 60’s and 70’s are alive and well with the 42nd Anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival with award winning cover band Late For Woodstock.
These relics of rock’s greatest era originally formed in 1998 and were voted Most Popular Live Band at the 2001 Entertainer of the Year Awards. And for good reason – the four-piece rock outfit live, eat and breathe the 60’s and 70’s, while their renditions of rock’s greatest classics are remarkably similar to the originals.
To celebrate the 42nd Anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival in 1969, Late for Woodstock will play the very best of CCR, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Stones, Neil Young, Santana, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, The Doobie Brothers and many more. Late For Woodstock cover the entire spectrum without skipping a beat.
The band members, who all grew up in the 60’s and “turned on” in the 70’s, include Bourbon Street lead singer Col Meredith, Paul Martin on guitar, Grant Byrne on bass, and drummer Tony Bell.
The unyielding demand for authentic classic rock keeps these reckless lads on the road. Seems those 60’s and 70’s just won’t leave ‘em alone.
Bluesy, colourful, funky, rock and highly danceable are terms one could use to help describe the Broadfoot sound. The popular Far North Coast band with members drawn from Mullumbimby, Murwillumbah and Byron Bay.
There is something for everyone at a Broadfoot gig so come along and catch the next one as Broadfoot continues to go from strength to strength, buoyed by their intrinsic love of bringing great live music to every listening ear and underpinned by superb musicianship, exciting musical interplay and a crystal spring of stand-out original music.
Australia’s best-loved banana picker (turned full-time guitar picker) 8 Ball Aitken is touring with his award winning third album, ‘REBEL WITH A CAUSE’.
He started work as a farm labourer aged fifteen, doing back-breakingly hard work on the mango and banana plantations of the Atherton Tablelands, a man's work for a boy's pay. A life-changing conversation with an Aboriginal elder, who told him he should pursue a career in music, convinced 8 Ball to pack his bags, grab his guitar, and leave the farm to meet his destiny.
