As one of Australia’s most beloved rock bands from the 1990s, Chocolate Starfish have an envious back catalogue and a rockin’ live show that is guaranteed to bring audiences to their feet. Now the band returns to Vertigo Cocktail Bar & Lounge at The Reef Hotel Casino for two special nights in October. Punters are definitely in for a treat as the group take to the stage.

Fronted by enigmatic singer Adam Thompson, Chocolate Starfish are widely reputed as one of the best live bands on the scene. Their energetic shows are all about the music and they don’t apologize for rockin’ hard. The band arrived smack bang in the middle of the grunge scene of the 1990s and refused to fit the mould. They had their own sound and their own direction; and this individualistic attitude earned them respect far and wide, something they’ve kept alive across the past two decades.

Across their career, Chocolate Starfish had six top 40 singles and two top 10 albums on the Australian charts, gold and platinum record sales and an ARIA for ‘Most Popular Album’. Their debut album entered the charts at #2 and the band hit the road, touring incessantly, resulting in the phrase ‘Australia’s hardest working band’ being coined about their dedication to touring. They disbanded in 1998 but left an indelible print on the Aussie music scene and ingrained themselves in local music history.

Chocolate Starfish were recognisable from Adam Thompson’s outrageous appearance and persona, and their tight rockin’ songs. The band was made up of some of Victoria’s best musicians and it was evident with their live shows. There was a chemistry in the songwriting, and even when they recorded covers, Chocolate Starfish put a slant all of their own on the material. Their singles Four Letter Word, Mountain and You’re So Vain are still played on radio regularly today ensuring that Chocolate Starfish has never left the memories of Aussie rock fans.

Adam Thompson is no stranger to Far North Queensland, having previously brought his solo show to The Reef Hotel Casino (even bringing in the New Year once). It’s been two years since Chocolate Starfish performed in Vertigo Cocktail Bar & Lounge and these special two nights promise to pack the house.
