Normie Rowe & The Playboys – Exclusive Dinner & Show
Normie Rowe was Australia’s biggest pop star of the sixties – Normie Rowe & The Playboys were huge! The nearest to them was The Easybeats. In December 1964 they were playing dance halls in the suburbs, In March 1965 they were appearing on the GO!! Show, and by 1966 Normie Rowe became the most successful Pop artist in Australian music history, with an extra-ordinary run of hit singles including; “It Ain’t Necessarily So”; “Que Sera Sera”; “I Who Have Nothing”; “Shakin’ All Over”; “Pride & Joy”; “Stubborn Kinda Guy”; “It’s Not Easy” and “Ooh La La”.
They’ve never sounded better – and they’ve never had more fun – with an extraordinary line-up on stage including Norbert Mancusi on drums, Steve Kelson from The Allstars on keyboards, and from Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs, Gil Mathews on guitar.
In 2005 Normie was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame and was also recognised by the Australian War Memorial as a National Hero. More recently Normie has become the Ambassador for Soldier On, a support organisation focusing on younger ex-service people dealing with physical and psychological effects of their war service deployments, and In November 2016, Normie saw the release of his Biography, “Normie, the Normie Rowe Story”, which traces his life from his early days to today.
Line up includes Normie Rowe on vocals & guitar, Gil Matthews playing guitar, Steve Kelson on keys and Norbert Mancusi on drums.
This exclusive Dinner & Show is a rare opportunity to enjoy an intimate evening with one of Australia’s favourite sons.
