Here is the story of how this Rolling Stones Tribute Show came to be… John van Zyl (taking on the role of Mick jagger) has been a Rolling Stones fan since he was a skinny 15 year old kid, he was introduced to the Rolling Stones by another kid that had just arrived in Australia from London, looked like he belonged in the Beatles and was armed with the first Rolling Stones album. John recalls, Ron was a very average bass player but he looked great in all his Mod clobber, his Beatle ‘mop top’, and he had that cockney accent, all the girls were asking about him . We couldn’t resist, we had to have him in the band and under his direction we all started dressing more like an English band. I had seen Mick Jagger on TV and was trying to copy his movements, we started getting better crowds, mainly girls coming to check out our ‘Mod’ bass player and this guy pretending he was Mick.

The Stones on the other hand were grungy, arrogant, rebellious and parents hated them, they were my kind of band. The ‘Untamed’ as we called ourselves were my first ‘sort of’ trbute to the greatest rock n roll band in the world, we lasted for about a year and went our separate ways.’ Now the show has been together for many years and we’ve been performing to audiences with up to 8,000 people at the Pan Pacific Games, Corporate Conferences, Festivals, Clubs and Hotels, in Queensland, NSW and Tasmania. Soon we’ll be playing in more states and also overseas. So, if you love the Rolling Stones music, want to feel the energy of the greatest rock n roll band in ther world and have a great time singing along to all your favourite Stones classics,’

Band of the Month

Arcadia Blues Blues Arcadia deliver an uninhibited old-fashioned soul stomp revival. Combining the legendary soul of the Stax and Motown era with the burning heat and power of the Chicago and Memphis blues, the songwriting partnership between vocalist Alan Boyle and guitarist Chris Harvey has gone from strength to strength, receiving three category nominations in the 2017 Australian Blues Music “Chain” Awards and nominated for an Australian Roots Music Award. Formed with collaborators and bandmates Jeremy Klysz (bass), Parmis Rose (keys) and Beck Flatt (drums), Blues Arcadia have delivered stand-out performances at festivals including Blues on Broadbeach, Caloundra Music Festival and the Gympie Music Muster. Released in late 2016 and recorded live-to-tape by Mike “Beachy” Wild (Jeff Lang, Brain Cadd), their debut self-titled EP captures all the passion and excitement of the band’s live shows. From the joyous horn stabs on ‘Operator Please’ to the plaintive minor key moan of ‘Corner Girls’ this collection of eclectic dirty soul-infused blues lives and breathes with an energy all its own. ​Blues Arcadia are the proud recipients of the 2017 Australian Blues Music Award for Best New Talent.
