Dead Singer Band to honour lost legends of Aussie rock at Wests

The biggest names in Australian rock will be honoured with a special show at Wests League Club next week.

The Lost Legends Showcase is a rockumentary delivered alongside a live music performance.

The Dead Singer Band will bring to life the work of some of the country’s most illustrious departed musicians, including Bon Scott, Chrissy Amphlett and Billy Thorpe.

The Dead Singer Band includes three former members of the Masters Apprentices (famous for Because I Love You), who have also worked with AC/DC and the Stevie Wright Band.

The concept of the Lost Legends Showcase was formed following the funeral of Masters Apprentices frontman Jim Keays in 2014.

Colin Burgess, Denny Burgess and Roger Faynes – who worked with Keays in Masters Apprentices – wanted to honour him with a tribute concert.

But they soon realised there was a host of talented Aussie singers they’d worked with throughout the years and they all deserved to be honoured.

The trio are joined by vocalist Vanessa Lea in the Dead Singer Band.

In addition to live music on the night, the Lost Legends Showcase will feature footage of rare and previously unseen interviews and performances.

The show runs for more than two hours and also honours singers including Doc Neeson, Stevie Wright and the Bee Gees.

The show will be held at Wests on Friday, August 3 from 7.30pm. Tickets are $20 for members, $23 for guests. Details: 4628 4188 or
