After a sell-out show last year they’re back by popular demand. Playing the hits and some obscure album tracks from four of the biggest bands in Rock History. You know the music. You grew up with it. Relive those songs, the parties, the sounds and the era (maybe just not the drugs this time!) This show sold out last year. Be sure to book now!

You may or may not know Pete Northcote……but you certainly have heard him!WINNER OFTHE 2007 MUSICOZ “BEST INSTRUMENTALIST” AWARD.Arguably the most recorded guitarist in Australian history, IN PETE NORTHCOTE’S SPACE…NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM!Turn on the TV and he plays on 90% of the ads you see and hear.

Pick your favourite show and there’s a good chance he’s playedguitar or written the music.Peter can also be hear in the house band on channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise every week.As an aspiring musician, Pete started doing session work in 1985. He was told by many other session musicians “you’ll get 2 to 4 good years as a session musician”.Well that was 1985 and heis still the busiest session musician in Australia today.Being 1stcall for jingles, Pete has played on just about every KFC, McDonald’s and Telstra ad since the mid ‘80s.

Having 12 Library/Production albums under his wing,his compositions have had a regular spot on Oprah, Dr Phil, and every sporting and lifestyle program known to man.As for record dates, Pete has recorded with Australian Idol cast albums, Anthony Callea, Bob Downe, Daryl Braithwaite, Doc Neeson, Dragon, Grace Knight, Guy Sebastian, Hi5, Human Nature, Jenny Morris, Jimmy Barnes, Julie Anthony, Marcia Hines, Margaret Urlich, MarcHunter, Neil Murray, Paul Kelly, Shannon Noll, Sharon O’Neill, Simon Philips and Yothu Yindi to name but a few!

Pete has performed and toured with international acts: ELTON JOHN, CHER, SHANIA TWAIN, BILLY JOEL, THE MONKEYS, ROD STEWART, BO DIDDLY and TOM JONES.His 1stsolo album “CONDITIONS APPLY” won critical acclaim from Virtuoso Guitarist STEVE VAI (David Lee Roth, Frank Zappa, Whitesnake) and after only one packed house performance at Sydney’s “BASEMENT”,CONDITIONS APPLY is now in its second printing.

His 2ndalbum “POINDEXTER AND THE GENIUS SEX ACT”is a concept album with a difference. Borne out of the quagmire of Pete’s eclectic but focused imagination, this album is a major turning point in his already expansive career. “More like a pantomime than a gig”, Pete performs the entire album as it is on the disc complete with a running monologue and a few props and surprises thrown in for good measure.

His 3rdalbum “CHILL AXE” is as the title suggests … a chill out album. Written with Café’s, nightclubs and long love making session in mind, CHILL AXE was a return to his Library/Production music catalogue that now spans more than 300 works.

Number 4, SLOW LOVE is a 6 track EP. You’ll like this.Although somewhat virtuosic, Pete’s music is not your typical ‘widdly widdly’ guitar instrumental. Nor is it the same blues licks you’ve heard guitarists emulate since Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn.Accessible, melodic, fun and fresh. exciting, assaulting and emotional. Peter’s musicwill have you tapping into some deep emotional, spiritual and sensual areas of your being whilst at times have you giggling inside at some more than familiar circumstances.Pete is still happy to make other people famous but his live shows will have you wondering why he hadn’t done this sooner
