THE JUGGERNAUT CALLED “AMIGOS” HAS RISEN.
Amigos has always been one of the most hard working and tightest bands treading the boards in NEWIE, so now it is time for the RE-BIRTH of this amazing band and to follow our destiny as well as take the faithful along for the journey. Come join us!
We are a combination of excellent, highly respected musicianship, enormous diversity in material, high-energy entertainment, thoroughly professional attitude, and most importantly,
DAMN GOOD FUN!
We have a play list of over 8 hours of music; you'll never get sick of an AMIGOS show, which includes all the greats from:
Cold Chisel, Midnight Oil, The Angels and AC-DC, 80's greats like Bryan Adams, REM and John Mellencamp, 90's icons like Hunters and Collectors, Offspring, Pearl Jam and Metallica, and the best new stuff well, the list just goes on and on to todays hits.
The reason for this "power and passion" and general all round entertainment value lies in the unique personnel combination in the band - years of experience that have not dulled the excitement, commitment, energy and enthusiasm to get out there and give the punters the best possible show, and the ability to "read" a room and give the audience what they want.
GREG DOUGLAS - Vocals and general tomfoolery.
Greg has been often called "The Madman of Rock" and has fronted some of Newcastle's bands such as "Rabbit", "Jukebox" and was a
founding member of "AMIGOS". His re-emergence was inevitable!
MARK WALLACE - Drums and vocals. Powerhouse, perfectionist and driving force behind the scenes as well as behind his drums a Rocker through and through. Great pedigree on percussion!
Joining Mark as the other half of a powerhouse rhythm section is…
PETER ROWNEY on Bass guitar and vocals. Peter has been a fixture of the Newcastle Rock scene since the 70's and has been the driving force in such bands as GOLD CADILLAC, FLASHBACK, IDOL MOTION, CHOSEN FEW, and YOUR MOVE, just to name a few. With his unique style and sound, Peter provides a punchy bottom end which makes you want get up and dance not to mention his vocal abilities to bring any classic song to life.
PINO MARTELLI - GUITARS & BACKING VOCALS.
Pino is the sort of guitarist that other guitarists come to watch and admire. He has had a long career playing professionally in Sydney and touring all over Australia. In Newcastle he has played with high profile bands like Baron and The Years. Other bands often call upon him when they need a virtuoso to fill in. Pino has found a home where he can let loose on the music he loves best -Pure Rock! His driving style is a major factor in this legendary outfit.
