Aussie Pride The All Australian Rock Music Tribute Show will support Legacy with a performance at the Redland Bay Hotel from 2pm on April 25.

Entry is free.

The band premiered at the hotel in 2018 where it recorded its live double album Anzac Day Live at Redland Bay 2018. The band has so far donated $27,000 to various charities, as part of its pledge to give 100 per cent of the sale price of the CD.

The band covers the cost of recording and producing its CDs. The album is available for sale on iTunes, Google Play or may be streamed on apps such as Spotify or Apple Music.

Lead guitarist Paul Passfield of Victoria Point and bass player Steve Brewster of Thornlands said they were proud to pay tribute to diggers in their own back yard.

"It's always a blast playing on our home turf, but it doesn't get any better than playing at such a historic venue that was built around 30 years prior to the first ANZACs and has witnessed all their feats over the decades. This day is by far the most emotionally charged performance all year and is very near and dear to us. We can always count on the people of the Redlands to support this great event," Brewster said.

The show is a tribute to the songs and bands of Australia's past and is a recognition of the steep history of the Australian music scene.

Brewster said audiences were taken on a journey back to days gone by when these songs played an integral part of their lives and to a time when the Australian music scene was thriving in local pubs and clubs.

"The band's repertoire caters to a wide audience of all ages and to all who appreciate classic Australian Rock," he said.

Aussie Pride pays homage to Cold Chisel, AC/DC, INXS, Angels, Australian Crawl, Hoodoo Gurus, Skyhooks, Dragon, Noiseworks, Baby Animals, Midnight Oil, Screaming Jets, Sherbet, Jet, Powderfinger, Men at Work, Mental as Anything, Divinyls, John Paul Young, Billy Thorpe, Goanna, Wolfmother, Jimmy Barnes, Diesel and Jet.

Some band members have even performed on stage with some of the original artists.
