FRANKIE J HOLDEN AND HIS BEAUT UTES BAND

will join us at the Quarterdeck Narooma for a night of Rock n' Roll. 

Take one of Australia’s legends of Rock and Roll - who also just happens to be a household name through his work on TV, stage, radio and film - put him on stage with a hot band, and you have the recipe for a superbly entertaining evening.

FRANKIE J. HOLDEN was born in 1953, the same year as the FJ Holden was first

manufactured and during the course of his diverse career he has become as much of

an icon as his automotive namesake.

In 2016 he was awarded an Order Of Australia Medal for his contribution to the performing arts and for services to the south coast of NSW.

He began his show-business career with the legendary rock group “OL’ 55”, one of the most successful Australian recording acts of all time.

Frankie J. has created some of Australian television’s most memorable

characters through leading roles in long-running serials, most recently “UNDERBELLY” and “A PLACE TO CALL HOME”.

He was awarded a Silver Logie in 2019 for his work in A Place To Call Home.

FRANKIE J. has appeared in over thirty films both here and overseas.

His screen work has been recognized with two Best Actor Awards and two nominations for Best Supporting Actor from the Australian Film Institute.

FRANKIE J. is also a very experienced and successful television presenter., having hosted “THE GREAT OUTDOORS”, “IN MELBOURNE TONIGHT”and “WHAT’S UP DOWNUNDER”.

Through all these years, Frankie J has continued to entertain audiences all over Australia with what remains his first love: singing rock and roll.

And making people laugh.

The Beaut Utes are three Sydney muso’s who have worked with Frankie J many times in various guises, and they are joined at The Quarterdeck by special guest Frankie J’s brother Tony Monaro (yes, that’s right, Tony Monaro).

This gig will be pure entertainment, with great music and lots of laughs. Between them, these guys know every song ever written, and are happy to take requests. Just write your request on the back of a $50 note and hand it to Frankie J. Then sing a long.

thE GADFLYS
sATURDAY 27 fEBRUARY 2021
8PM TICKETS $30

The Gadflys began in the 1980s as a three-piece punk band founded by brothers Mick and Phil Moriarty. Normally, ‘punk’ means distorted guitars and loud drums playing as fast as possible. For The Gadflys, it meant a double bass, guitar and clarinet playing an eclectic mix of pop, rock, country and ballads.


The trio made its mark first as distinctive buskers, then as a popular pub band. Over the years The Gadflys have grown from the basic trio to a big band with horns, keyboards and backing vocalists.

The Gadflys are probably best termed modern jazz, with an accent on clarinet and guitar. Phil and Mick Moriarty have been around the Sydney music scene for more than fifteen years, and were the resident musicians on popular ABC-TV show "Good News Week" (and went with the show when it moved to commercial Network Ten).

 

This is funky, upbeat, rhythmic modern jazz with gravelly and distinct vocals.

Don't miss these fantastic performers...
