What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Come along and join Andrew and me for dinner and free live music at the Dogs Bar. Dinner will be at 7:30pm at a table booked under Jodie. Here is a copy of their menu. http://dogsbar.com.au/winter-menu/ Then after dinner, live music will be from 9pm. Plenty of public transport available too. You can either get a bus, train or tram there depending on where you're travelling from. But for anyone who is coming from the city, public transport options are: TRAIN - Get the Sandringham line from Flinders Street Station. Then get off at Balaclava Station and then get either the 3, 3a or 16 tram from there. Get off at stop 32, Hovelock Street and it's a 2 minute walk. TRAM - Alternatively you could get either one of those trams from Flinders Street Station (3 3a or 16), if you want to but I think the above option would be a lot quicker. OR you can get the 96 tram from Southern Cross Station on Bourke Street. Then get off at stop 140 Barkly Street and it's a 3 minute walk. For more options, please check out the link below. https://www.ptv.vic.gov.au/ PLEASE NOTE: This event will also be combined with other meetup groups.

Sat 06 Jul - 8:30 pm Bon But Not Forgotten GUESTS: DARIO BORTOLIN, JAMES MORLEY, SKENIE, CYNTHIA GALLIE, JOEL MCDONALD, GREG ALDRIDGE Bon But Not Forgotten THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+ Bon But Not Forgotten is the closest you will ever get to AC/DC in the 70's! This show brings together some of the world’s greatest rockers to pay tribute to the legend behind one of the world's greatest ever bands, AC/DC, and their iconic singer Bon Scott who celebrates his Birthday on July 9th. Featuring a knock-out line-up, including past and present members of Aussie rock icons, Baby Animals, The Angels and The Poor, this band knows how to electrify a crowd with its explosive repertoire of AC/DC's greatest hits. Not content with just performing a 'Best Of' set, the band also focuses on some gems that aren't commercial in nature, but true fans will love to hear them live, some for the first time. This show replicates the sound, style and passion of AC/DC, without pretence. It is quite simply THE most natural sounding AC/DC performance of any band, other than AC/DC themselves. There is no other band on earth that can perform the show like these carefully selected musicians. The line-up features the consummate talents of: Dario Bortolin – Bass Guitarist of The Baby Animals SKENIE – One of Australia's hardest rocking front men from The Poor James Morley – Former bassist with ARIA Hall of Fame band, The Angels, and guitarist with Choirboys. Joel McDonald – lead guitarist and musical curator for Frankie’s World Famous House Band (of cult venue Frankie’s Pizza, Sydney) which has seduced collaborations with acts including KISS, Guns N Roses, Whitesnake, The Cult and more. Cynthia Gallie –Australias Leading Female Rock Vocalist Greg Aldrige – Drummer for Blood Sweat and Beers - The concert, featuring past and current members of Rose Tattoo, AC/DC, The Angels & The Screaming Jets. He has also played with other members from bands such as Noiseworks, Baby Animals, The John Farnham band, Mondo Rock, Midnight Oil, Stars, Chain, The Black Sorrows, Skyhooks, Ugly kid Joe.
