What a Must See Show On The Calander For 2023!
Countdown favourites Ol’ 55 made their way into the Oz Rock history books during the 1970s and 1980s with chart topping singles such as On The Prowl, Looking For An Echo, (I Want A) Rockin’ Xmas, Two Faces Have I and the seminal album TAKE IT GREASY.That multi-platinum album established them as one of the biggest bands in the country while their live performances cemented their reputation as one of the most powerful bands on the burgeoning live circuit. They made great records, and they were great entertainers.
The band’s antics not only saw them on the covers of the popular music press of the time, but also as TV Week poster boys and regulars on Countdown and other TV shows. The band even started the half-time Rugby League Grand Final performance tradition when they circled the ground on the back of a truck at the 1976 Grand Final in Sydney.
Ol’ 55’s initial success could be attributed in part to the management of Glenn A Baker and two strong musical personalities out front who have gone on to become household names – front man Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde on sax. Frankie J and Wilbur bring to the stage their incredible skills and broad experience as all-round entertainers, honed through their work in all the other areas of their long and successful careers. They are musicians, certainly, but they are also raconteurs…. and ragers!
OL’55 don’t just play the songs, they play the audience, take them on a journey: they make them laugh, they make them sing, they make them dance, they make them want more.
It may be hard to believe it’s been four decades since Ol’55 became a household name, but they’ll be celebrating in true rock ‘n’ roll style when they hit The Bridgeway with Frankie J and Wilbur and the original line-up – with special guest on drums Freddie Strauks from Skyhooks!
Coming together for this special show at The Bridgeway Hotel, OL’55 will take audiences on a trip back in time with a show jam-packed with back-to-back hits and a highly entertaining stage performance.
