Northern Rivers very own supergroup The Feramones return this month from all corners of the globe for another summer season of classic rock’n’roll.

Byron Bay’s six-piece ensemble of internationally-recognised rock musicians, The Feramones, have been reuniting in the region every summer for over a decade now, to play their unique brand of classic rock covers in local venues.

Featuring both former and current members of some of the world’s most recognised rock bands, The Feramones formed in Byron Bay in 2002 and the lineup has remained unchanged for over a decade.

During Australia’s winter months the band members disperse throughout the globe to fulfill other musical engagements.

Most notably, guitarist Rick Fenn joins his band 10cc to tour the northern hemisphere. Until recently, pianist Alan Park headed off to Europe to resume his dual role as Cliff Richard’s musical director and pianist in his band.

Guitarist Alan Limbrick (Mike Oldfield, Joan Armatrading, David Knopfler), bassist Greg Lyon (Rodriguez, Hip Pocket, Crossfire), singer Colin Germano (Bourbon Street, Late for Woodstock) and drummer Rick Lloyd (RAM, Late for Woodstock) scatter across Australia, the US and the South Pacific Islands to spread the gospel of rock in their respective bands.

With this year being no exception, The Feramones return to the northern rivers this month for the 2013 summer season, bringing with them their classic rock’n’roll covers that keep their blood pumping.

Fans of The Feramones welcome their dynamic ‘big sound’ and unique brand of rock which includes covers from Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Steely Dan, The Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Toto and a host of other great artists from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

The six-piece line-up includes lead vocals, bass, drums, piano/keyboards and two lead guitars, which opens the door to some very intricate material with 3 to 4-part harmonies.

The Feramones love a musical challenge and consistently push themselves to their very rock limits.

If you appreciate classic rock and have yet to experience The Feramones, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Their first gigs for this season kick off at the Ballina RSL tonight Friday 25 October and the Beach Hotel in Byron Bay on Sunday.

Find this and many other great gigs in Echonetdaily’s North Coast Gig Guide.
