About Me

Introducing “UNLOCKING THE DOORS” - a new Australian Showcase which is rapidly building a following throughout Sydney and the east coast of NSW. A must see outfit totally dedicated in bringing to you the true sound of Jim Morrison and the powerhouse performances of The Doors.

"UNLOCKING THE DOORS" has wasted no time in establishing a name as a showcase not to be missed.

The band consists of four Wollongong based musicians who have set out to capture the magic of Jim Morrison and band that take audiences back in time to the unique rock act that was The Doors!

Unlocking The Doors front man, Richie, sets out to capture Morrison's magic whilst leaving some of the cliché surrounding Jim behind.

Richie is backed by Sandy on Organ and Keyboard Bass. Sandy has set out to reproduce the unmistakable sound of The Doors organist, Ray Manzarek. Often considered the genius behind The Doors sound, Manzarek's influence on rock music is as relevant today as it was back in the late 60's. Sandy has dedicated herself to mastering Ray's almost split personality style of playing. Hypnotic bass fills with one hand and stabbing syncopation with the other, through to some of Ray's signature melodic lines such as the opening of "Light My Fire".

On guitar we have Mick, fingerpicking his Gibson SG standard to emulate The Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger's wonderful Legato style. From the beautifully atmospheric tremolo of "Riders on the Storm" to the grinding attack of "5 to 1", Mick plays homage to Robbie's style that is impossible to pigeon hole.

Finally on drums we have Chris, completing the line-up for Unlocking The Doors. John Densmore's unique fusion of Jazz, Rock and Latin beats still stands unsurpassed today for the eclectic signature it placed on The Doors sound. Chris has dedicated himself to unlocking Densmore's style and providing the back beat that is hard to master.

This is Unlocking The Doors!
