If you grew up going to see bands live and are now in your 30's,40's or older you know you don't have to wait for a festival to see & hear some rock bands here on the coast don't you. Every week there are some really good bands playing at venues such as The Avoca Beach Hotel, The Bayview and the Old pub at Woy Woy, and The Woodport Inn at Erina just to name a few.Don't be put off by the venue, remember these are the sought of places we used to frequent only now we're older in body but not in spirit or beer or wine, ha! ha!.You will probably find there are quite a few like minded souls there. As well as some originals these bands play great covers from artists such as Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Led Zepplin, Green Day, AC/DC, etc,etc.Check out Dan Granero, The Steve Edmonds Band, The Dia Pritchard Band. So release yourself from the usual Saturday night in front of the telly( yes I know it's a 50 inch plasma or what ever) and enjoy some rock music and a few drinks with your old ( in body only remember) friends.
