Special guests:

Steve Lucas, vocals, guitar – Steve was a founder member of the trail blazing punk band X in the late 1970’s. With producer Lobby Loyde they recorded the acclaimed album X-Aspirations in 5 hours and that album singlehandedly redefined the Australian underground music scene. Steve has been actively recording group and solo albums since that time and remains a dynamic performer with a magnificent voice. He also loved singing Steve Marriott’s songs.

Gil Matthews, drums – Gil was of course a member of Billy Thorpe’s Aztecs for many years and followed that with three years in Mondo Rock. He is an astonishing drummer but also sings, is a guitarist, a record producer and invested much time and energy in re-releasing pivotal Australian music fro the ‘70s and ‘80s through his Aztec International record label.

Dan Robinson, vocals – Dan formed the Wild Cherries in 1967 with guitarist Lobby Loyde and sang on all of their hit songs. He went on to study musical composition and play in a succession of successful bands in the ‘70s and ‘80s, notably country rock.
