One of the most mysterious band in the history of Melbourne, Frank Raymond many people from far and wide have said he doesn't exist, but we here at FAD know the truth. He does, he’s most certainly alive and kicking and he makes his sole public appearance once a month on that sacred day, being the first Thursday of the month. Compared to Rodriguez (searching for sugar man) – backed by an amazing/self-indulgent. damn fine musos. The tunes keep on rolling, they bang them out, as you dance the night away for a night of entertainment. 1st Thursday of the Month
Rocky & The Two Bob Millionaires – Every 2nd Thursday of The Month The Rock himself Mr Rocky Dabscheck & the Two Bob Millionaires (who’s a pretty amusing type of guy and on top of that he & his band are some first class musos – Nick Carrafa on drums, Maxxy on bass guitar and Mr Brendan Mason on lead guitar, they all play some damn fine tunes . . . dont tell them too many times cos their heads may just explode). A Mix of Rock, Folk & blues between the preaching sections from brother Rock to brother Bob (Brenden Mason) and Rocky banging on about one amusing thing to the next, then with some damn fine tunes from the boys in-between, its an entertaining / enjoyable night for all thanks to the boys from Rocky & The Two Bob Millionaires. Also on the second Tuesday of each month, there’s a more intimate show just featuring Rocky & Brenden an easy acoustic night, where Rocky still shows his amusing side with the help of brother Bob.
