The Dire Straits Experience
A tribute show bringing to life the works of one of the great British bands of the 80s - Dire Straits. The band that featured the amazing guitaring of Mark Knopfler (who's solo career included the theme song to The Princess Bride). Mixing up rock guitar with saxophone and keyboard, the band's best known album Brothers In Arms included tracks such as Money For Nothing and Walk of Life. Other popular songs include Sultans of Swing, Twisting by the Pool and that classic that tugged at the heartstrings of fans - Romeo and Juliet. The Dire Straits Experience tribute band brings these songs to life. Featuring a former member of the band, Chris White who played saxophone with the band for a number of years. Tickets: B-Reserve $79 (+4.95 booking fee) Only a handful of seats left in this section at the back of the theatre. I've booked my seat in the back row with empty seats around it.

What we're about

If you're interested in seeing live music all over Canberra, this is the group for you. I started this group because, while I might not have made it as a rock star (got as far as ACT air guitar champion....seriously...) I do still enjoy seeing a good gig, often while dwelling on what might/should have been in my younger years. Tragic? perhaps. Nevertheless I look forward to your company in front of a stack of Marshall amps sometime soon (ear plugs in of course). And of course, thanks very much for joining up!

While gigs will be rock/indie-centric, will aim to include some blues/folky options as well.

Cheers

Shane
