The 40up show is heading to Wollongong! The sizzling 70s, 80s and 90s dance party concept is back after a fabulous kick-off year with sell-out events across Australia… especially for 40-somethings.
“You should be daaaaaancing, yeah”!
The Wollongong show puts the music of the legendary Barry White in the spotlight.
Since we lost so many great artists in the last couple of years, we should celebrate some of the masters of funk and R&B that we take for granted in mash-ups and remixes.
Barry White’s music and big sound lives on. We will celebrate some of those magic musical moods, beats and melodies at Towradgi Beach Hotel & Waves on Saturday 22nd September, 7:30pm onwards.
As always, 40up is bringing the full band including Steve Clisby on vocals.
Featuring “Never gonna give you up”, “You’re my first, my last… my everything”, “Ecstasy”, “Just the way you are” and more…
The show will also include some of the 40up fans’ favourites, so get ready for a deep, chocolate-smooth and funky experience.
Hammer of the Gods Tour The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience
Led Zeppelin fans – be on notice. You are about to witness the legendary British supergroup in all its glory and excesses! Widely hailed as “the best Led Zeppelin band on the planet,” (Dennis D’Amico, Exec. Prod. Paul McCartney), NO QUARTER, Hammer of the Gods Tour is pounding its way to a venue near you soon, all the way from Seattle US.
Rolling Stone magazine credited the band for keeping the Zeppelin spirit alive in a 2012 Collector’s Edition of Led Zeppelin. This is an authentic reproduction of Led Zeppelin’s groundbreaking stage show, so faithfully recreated that original band member, John Paul Jones said that “I never have to worry about touring with my band again.”
No Quarter has been wowing audiences all over the world in their authentic tribute stage show for more than 15 years and has shared the stage with such legendary artists as Peter Frampton, Foreigner, Steppenwolf, Loverboy, Jefferson Starship and many others. Band members take on the characters of John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant and bring each of them to the stage in their absolute prime. This is more than a tribute act, NO QUARTER capture all of the subtle nuances and mannerisms of the characters they are representing just like actors in a film. Fans who have seen the original band will think they have returned and will have the opportunity to relive the magic. Fans who never had the chance to witness the supergroup won’t believe their luck and will finally get to experience the iconic and groundbreaking stage show for the first time.
“If in fact, you have never seen the real Led Zeppelin in concert, seeing these guys live is as close as one can get. They have all the moves, they know every note of every song…. it is just amazing how well they impersonate the real thing.” John Tuckness, Daily Herald, Chicago.
NO QUARTER, Hammer of the Gods Tour features Michael Anderson channelling Robert Plant on vocals – Nathan Carroll portraying drummer John Bonham, Chad McMurray playing bassist/multiinstrumentalist John Paul Jones and the fleet-fingered Byran Christiansen as Jimmy Page. The British supergroup famously refuses to reunite following the death of John Bonham in 1980 other than a one-off gig in 2007. THE LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE has stepped into the breach, keeping the band’s fans satisfied and the spirit alive.
Witness a moment in history come to life and don’t miss the pounding, haunting experience of NO QUARTER, Hammer of the Gods Tour at WAVES Thursday 29th November!

MAMMAL ‘Community’ Australian Tour
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS OSAKA PUNCH & FRESH VIOLET
In August 2017, Mammal stepped out of the wilderness after 8 long years to announce a reunion show and tribal gathering in their home town of Melbourne. The show sold out within hours of tickets being released and needless to say went on to be one of the most intense and emotionally charged shows in the bands short, but action packed history. They quickly added 3 more shows in late 2017 with each one proving to be just as powerful, affecting and exciting as ever. But the question still remained… “Are Mammal truly back??”
Well, it seems that as of today that question can finally be answered with a fist in the air and a resounding “HELL YEAH!!”
Mammal ARE back – bigger and better than ever, and they come bearing gifts. Frontman Ezekiel Ox says of the new track – “It’s been 10 years since we dropped new shit, talk is cheap, turn it up and dance.”
It is with great pleasure that Mammal announce the release of their first single ‘Community’ with bonus track ‘Virtue Signalling’. ‘Community’ was self-produced by Mammal recorded in Melbourne by engineers Tyson Fish and Steven Smith and mixed/mastered by legendary producer Machine (Lamb of God, Clutch etc) at the Machine Shop in the USA. The band loved the new song so much that today they are also releasing a videoclip for ‘Community’, directed by young gun Jack Dyball.
The bonus track on the Community Double A-Side Single release, ‘Virtue Signalling’, is one many fans from the return shows may remember – it made its debut in the live set during that tour! The track is Classic Mammal – Bouncy riffs, spitfire lyrics and all the intensity and ferocity you’ve come to expect!
But wait, there’s more! To support the release of ‘Community’ – Mammal is also announcing that they will be embarking on a national tour presented by artist agency New World Artists – and are bringing Brisbane heavyweight funksters Osaka Punch and Melbournian hip-hop artist Fresh Violet along for the ride!
Osaka Punch have been going from strength to strength in the past 2 years, supporting Dead Letter Circus & The Butterfly Effect on full Australian tours and releasing their EP ‘Death Monster Super Squad’ and single ‘How We Operate’.
Fresh Violet is Melbournian rapper, producer and musician creating waves in the Australian music community with her refreshing, upbeat take on Hip Hop. Her quirky style and personality matched with genuine technical skill and stage presence has marked her as a force to be reckoned with. Fresh has been tearing up stages around Australia on her solo national tour this year and is currently preparing to release her debut album 50 Shades of Violet.
Needless to say these shows are set to be massive and the lads cannot wait to hit the road and celebrate their return with all their extended Mammalian family around the country!
