Gareth Hill (as Freddie Mercury) rocks the Kyneton Bowling Club.
The Australian Queen Tribute Show will rock The Grand Mornington in Mornington tomorrow night.
Formed in 2006, the band has played in Darwin, Tasmania, Sydney, all over Victoria, Western Australia, Adelaide, Hamilton Island and even Japan.
Gareth Hill, the frontman for the band, became a Queen fan when he was a teenager.
Then he saw a tribute band perform “and I didn’t like what I saw”, Gareth told The Newsroom.
“I saw another tribute band, which was even worse, and I went up to the guitarist and I said you’re really good but the rest of your band was horrible and I can sing better than your lead singer. He invited me to jam and that’s how the band started.”
The Australian Queen Tribute Show is composed of Gareth (Freddie Mercury), Scotty Hotpants (Brian May), Brad Hodge (Roger Taylor), Darryn (John Deacon), and David Costabile (Spike Edney).
“They are really good,” Judith Mayer, a long-time Queen fan told The Newsroom. “The first time I saw them was at the Kyneton Bowling Club.”
Among the Queen hits the band will be rocking out tomorrow are We Are The Champions, Another One Bites The Dust, Somebody to Love and Pressure. – Story and photo by Sarah Batt
