PRIDE: Aussie Pride comes to Victoria Point Sharks Sporting Club on December 2.

Aussie Pride will take Victoria Point Sharks Sporting Club by storm when it hits the club from 8pm on Saturday, December 2.  There is no cover charge.

Aussie Pride pays tribute the genre of Australian rock, covering from the early days of the Easybeats, through the decades covering bands such as the Divinyls, Cold Chisel, the Angels, Australian Crawl, INXS, Midnight Oil, Dragon, AC/DC, Jet and Wolfmother.

The band which was formed just two years ago, includes Redland players Steve Brewster of Thornlands and Paul Passfield of Victoria Point.

Brester said the band had already played with many well known artists including sharing a stage with  Doc Neeson from the Angels and Glen Shorrock from Little River Band etc  as well as international musicians Skunk Baxter from Steely Dan and the  Doobie Brothers.  

The band will support Dr Feelgood from the UK in May 2018.  We are in discussions to support original Aussie artists in 2018.     

“Our performances are currently so well received that we can proudly boast a 100 per cent success rate that every venue has asked us back to play on at least one additional occasion,” Brewster said.

The band has produced one studio and another live album, the live one containing 18 tracks from a recent show at the Hamilton Hotel in Brisbane.  The CDs are sold at shows and all proceeds are donated to charities.  Charities to benefit to date include Beyond Blue,  Legacy,  National Breast Cancer Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Australia,  Kids for Cancer,  Camp Quality and Motor Neuron Disease.  The show on December 2 will support  One Punch Can Kill which is its signature cause.
