VJAM STAGE - FRIDAY

9.30pm Headline – Hoodoo Gurus

For three decades the Hoodoo Gurus have consistently been one of the most inventive, lyrically smart and goddamn exciting rock’n’roll bands Australia has ever produced. Oh yeah, and they’ve done it with style, panache and a wicked sense of humour.

The strange and enthralling saga of the Hoodoo Gurus began when three relocated Perth musicians – Dave Faulkner, Roddy Radalj and James Baker – teamed up with Sydney-based Kimble Rendall to play a rooftop party in Sin City on New Year’s morning 1981. As Le Hoodoo Gurus (why the ‘Le’? Because they could.) the band had released a debut single, Leilani. By the time it was released Rendall had moved on to work in the film industry, Radalj to form another band and the lineup was set with Brad Shepherd on guitar, bassist Clyde Bramley and Mark Kingsmill taking over the drumming duties.

From the get go the Hoodoo Gurus created a distinctive distillation of music that was in their respective record collections, creating a fascinating synthesis of The Cramps, T. Rex, Little Richard, The Ramones, Suicide, Gene Vincent, The Flamin’ Goovies, Nancy Sinatra, Gary Glitter, Bobby Gentry, The Sonics and a thousand others. They spelt it out in (Let’s All )Turn On, the opening track from Stoneage Romeos.

A revitalised Hoodoo Gurus released Mach Schau in 2004 and hit the road again, playing to an audience compromised of both long-term fans and a new generation who had grown up listening to the parents and elder siblings’ records and reminiscences about great gigs they’d seen.

The NRL embraced the Gurus using the re-worked What’s My Scene (That’s My Team) as their promotional theme for five years, and along with many live dates and festival appearances such as headlining spots at Homebake and The Big Day Out, the band performed live at the 2006 and 2007 NRL Grand Finals.



7.45pm Support – Ross Wilson

From Daddy Cool to Mondo Rock and as a solo artist with no less than 26 ARIA Top 40 hits to his credit as a singer, songwriter and producer, Ross Wilson is one of Australia’s most awarded, respected and well-known artists!

From the legendary band Daddy Cool whose number one anthem Eagle Rock smashed all previous sales records in Australia, to the 1977 formation of Mondo Rock, delivering 80’s hits ‘Cool World’, ‘State of The Heart’, ‘Chemistry’, ‘No Time’, and ‘Come Said The Boy’ and into the 21st century as a solo performer, Wilson has never been out of the limelight.

Twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, Wilson has written hits for Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham and Joe Cocker, and produced smash hit albums for Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, Skyhooks and Screaming Jets. 

Come Back Again to see an absolute solid gold legend of rock and his full band ‘The Peaceniks’ perform all his hits!

6.30pm - Jeff Lang

Australian guitarist-songwriter-vocalist-producer, Jeff Lang has built a reputation for making startling music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul.

Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalog of over 25 albums. Alone In Bad Company, Jeff’s latest album, presents the most organic union of his talents and influences yet. It’s filled with exquisitely sung stories and melodies, demonstrating that Jeff is nothing if not a lover of song. Each time he steps up to take a solo, his hard‐won style is unmistakable – fluid but with an edge‐of‐the‐seat recklessness.

VJAM STAGE - SATURDAY

9.45pm Headline – Jon Stevens

Jon Stevens is recognised as one of the most talented rock musicians to emerge from Australia in recent memory. He has had phenomenal success as a solo artist, knocking Michael Jackson off the top of the charts in Australia, and as the lead singer of major rock acts, Noiseworks, INXS and the Dead Daisies.  In 2016 he joined forces with legendary musician, songwriter and producer Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) to record a new album, Starlight.

With his mojo fully intact, Stevens virtually stands alone in the music scene, with a raw vocal power that won him attention first as a teenager and now as a veteran singer and songwriter. Time has toughened his delivery while tapping into his emotional wellsprings more than ever before.
