Arguably Australia’s most musically and vocally accurate Fleetwood Mac tribute, the band features the incredible vocals of Melbourne singers Sue Jones (Lead Vocals), Jordan Z (Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar) and Debbi Arpini (Vocals, Percussion) – backed by a stellar line-up of prolific musicians, including Peter Valentine on Keys & vocals (Burns, Cotton & Morris), Rick Petropoulos on Bass (The Ferrets), Dave Hampton on Lead Guitar (The Australian Madonna Show) and Fallon Williams III on Drums (Humble Pie, Bryan Adams, Peter Frampton).  The band members have collectively performed and toured with numerous Australian and International artists.

The Detonators

One of our favourite regular bands at TomKatz wanted us to pass on a few words...

"We wouldn’t have thought after our first gig at The Swan Hotel in Richmond on August 16th, 1997, that we’d still be firing over 25 years later.  On that gig which went from 11pm to 2am we played 3 sets including some original songs which truly set the future ball rolling. We played The Swan for the next few Saturday nights until they decided to discount our already small pay, so we quit our first residency and went out looking for more work. After that incident we have never looked back. We estimate about 3000 gigs since we’ve been going, pubs, festivals, clubs, weddings, birthdays, a funeral, car shows, the lot.

We’ve been docked, drunk, starved, left without promised accommodation after a gig and played weddings where we received just one meal for all of us.  Once we played a bar in Cowra where a massive fight started. We had to stop because the fighters were falling on our P.A. and gear. Later that night we were docked for finishing early. We’ve had stacks of good times which far outweigh the bad. So come down to the gig and enjoy our stuff because we sure like making it and playing it." Dinner and snacks available from 5pm.

Silverhair

Silverhair is a four piece band with many years of experience (as the name of the band may suggest).  The players are all Melbourne-based musicians and all have a very impressive pedigree - that means yes we have all come from top bands. The band members are Phil on lead vocals & rhythm guitar (the guy with the very unique vocals), Steve on bass & vocals (also noted for playing the little wooden sticks on 'Alright Now' ), Adrian on lead guitar & vocals (always has the guitarists and enthusiasts watching his every move) and drummer Rick also on vocals (he can be very funny) with a long record of memorable bands. Their songlist is the best of 60’s to the 90’s with hits that appeal to all ages - a classic dance band whose motto is “lets get the party started”, and that’s exactly what they do. Dinner and snacks available from 5pm.

The Herberts

The Herberts are a band playing the best of sixties music, they could have been transported from playing a couple of streets away from the Beatles at the Cavern club or Carnaby street.  Featuring one of the best frontmen in Australia, The Herberts is a 60s concept band playing all the popular dance songs from 60s Britain. They wear the uniform of the era and not only sound great but look great as well. Their appeal is widespread as they have chosen songs that were not only hits in the 60s but have been re-covered by bands in the 80s, 90s and 2000s. These guys are great to listen to, awesome to dance to and funny and entertaining for those who just like to sit back and watch.
