Tuesday 31st December
Come celebrate a rockin’ New Years Eve at Yarraville, as Raw Brit perform the classics from Free, Bad Company, The Who, Slade, Led Zeppelin, Status Quo, Cream and more!
One of Melbourne’s the most exciting rock tribute acts to emerge in recent years: Raw Brit, has had an important line-up change. Raw Brit’s co-founder and guitar hero Bob Spencer has joined Rose Tattoo as their permanent guitar player leaving a vacant guitar seat. Bob’s parting words were: “get Lezzo (Dave Leslie) .. problem solved” No sooner had Bob started the riff to “Bad Boy For Love”, when Baby Animals guitar player Dave Leslie stepped in, turned up his amp to 11 and smashed out the British favs from the 60’s and 70’s with Raw Brit. “Dave has been and invaluable replacement for Bob .. he just gets it” says drummer Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen. “Boom Crash Opera and The Baby Animals toured together back in the day and I knew I’d play in a band with him .. its very VERY exciting”. Now with a few Raw Brit shows under his belt, Dave is more at ease having to fill Bob’s shoes and recalls: “I
could not believe it … the very first song I played with these guys was like I put on my favourite old pair of jeans”
Formed around 10 years ago by Mick Pealing (Stars) and Bob Spencer (The Angels, Skyhooks, Rose Tattoo), along with John Favaro (The Badloves) and Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen (Boom Crash Opera), Raw Brit saw an immediate following with sold out shows.
Because Raw Brit members spend their busy professional life in their ‘main’ bands, it’s a very rare and special occasion when they get to play the music that influenced them. It makes this incredible line-up a must see for every British invasion enthusiast, so dig out those dancin’ shoes and get ready to rock this New Years Eve!
