Melbourne's specialist '60s band, The Substitutes, with Special Guest Steve Lucas, present The Explosive Hits of the 60s’ Show.

The show covers the very best Mod, Surf, Garage, Folk, Rock and Pop music of the ‘60s and featuring The Who, Small Faces, The Kinks, Beach Boys, Lovin’ Spoonful, The Byrds, The Turtles, Bob Dylan, The Doors, The Easybeats, Vanilla Fudge, Rolling Stones and many others.

Steve Lucas 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. But while he may have a famous punk persona he has a profound love of ’60s music and his desire to do justice to the lost gems of the period drives this show. He has performed with The Substitutes on multiple occasions to great mutual acclaim.

The Substitutes have been around for nearly ten years recreating that ‘60s excitement and rawness that often gets lost with tribute bands. Listen to a Dave Davies guitar solo or a Keith Moon drum roll and know that the ‘60s were about experimentation and risk taking, not just good pop melodies.

With the authentic vocals and astonishing guitar work of Neil Scott (ex British ‘70s rock band Chalice), a rhythm section comprising legendary musical director and bassist Peter Robinson (ex The Strangers) and leading Melbourne rock drummer Peter Reed (ex New Dream, Phil Manning, Pantha, Lynne Randall, The Tremors, Johnny O’Keefe), plus the punk energy of Peter Summers on guitar and keys (ex Strange Idols), The Substitutes faithfully reproduce the sounds of the ‘60s, just like the record, but with real spirit, dry humour and a passion that you will remember.
