ROCKWIZ SALUTES VANDA AND YOUNG IN A SPECIAL EPISODE TO LAUNCH THE NEW SEASON
While The Easybeats had Friday on their mind, RocKwiz have Monday on theirs when the new season launches on Monday March 24 with a special episode saluting Australian songwriters Harry Vanda and George Young.
Season 12 kicks off with a live show recorded at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre in December last year where RocKwiz paid tribute to Alberts writers Vanda and Young – Australia’s most famous songwriting and production team. From The Easybeats to Flash and The Pan, to producing material for The Angelsand AC/DC, Vanda and Young were responsible for some incredible music.
This special episode pays loud and loving tribute to an important slice of our musical history. Joining the delightful Julia Zemiro, charismatic showman Brian Nankervis, beloved human scoreboard Dugald and the RocKwiz Orkestra, are a cavalcade of stars including Doc Neeson (The Angels), Isabella Manfredi (The Preatures), The Basics (the band featuring Wally De Backer aka Gotye), Steve Kilbey, and Gossling to name just a few.
Episode One airs Monday March 24, 9.30pm on SBS ONE
