Ty Coates’ BOMBERS
After leaving the Party Boys, Ty Coates (Flash Harry, Party Boys), Alan Lancaster (Status Quo) & John Brewster (The Angels) formed powerhouse rock band The Bombers. They went on to record an album ‘Aim High’ and released several singles which received critical acclaim worldwide. The band toured with Alice Cooper, Skid Row, Ian Moss, Dragon and Cheap Trick to name a few, appeared on Countdown and MTV and performed exclusively throughout Australia.
Lead singer Ty Coates has reformed the band with a brand-new line-up featuring Christina Crofts (widow of the late Steve Crofts, the original Bombers guitarist) on guitars and slide guitar, Mick Carter on bass (ex-Swanee, One World) and much sought after young gun Ryan Mathison on drums. The band has recorded a brand new album which has been extremely well received by the bands long time fans as well as a whole new stable of supporters all eager to see the band perform live once again!
Rose Carleo Band
Rose Carleo is the next Queen of Australian rock. Coupled with hot shot guitarslinger Mick Adkins, Carleo projects both a magic and an authority that’s set to grab the live scene by the throat. Backed with the rhythm section muscle of Steve King of Rose Tattoo fame on bass and drummer for everyone who’s anyone, Mick O’Shea, you either get on board or get out of the damn way.” – Murray Engleheart
