BOB ’BONGO’ STARKIE’S SKYHOOKS SHOW
When it comes to classic Aussie rock acts, none are more revered than legendary Melbourne ensemble SKYHOOKS. The glam rockers combined melodic guitar riffs and a pub rock sensibility with relatable lyrics addressing drugs, sex and everyday life in a changing Australia throughout the ‘70s. Throw-in flamboyant costumes and frontman Shirley Strachan’s captivating vocals and you have yourself a delectable cocktail of chart-topping singles from a band who did more in seven years than most rock acts achieve in a lifetime.
Bob ’Bongo’ Starkie, original guitarist with the band, has assembled a red hot band to perform their classic songs in a personal celebration of the music of Skyhooks.
SKYHOOKS helped change the face of rock’n’roll in the 1970s with a string of Number One and Top 10 singles to their credit, as well as two of Australia’s biggest selling albums, ‘Living in the 70s’, and ‘Ego is Not A Dirty Word’.
