Hope Rocks with Hoodoo Gurus and You Am I
Hoodoo Gurus are one of Australia’s greatest, best loved and most enduring rock bands. For over three decades the Hoodoo Gurus have consistently been one of the most inventive, lyrically smart and goddamn exciting rock’n’roll bands Australia has ever produced.
And they’ve done it with style, panache and a wicked sense of humour. Consistent chart-toppers, ARIA Hall of Famers, co-curators of the Dig It Up! Invitational and many other accolades, they’ve influenced an entire generation of bands including the likes of You Am I, The Living End, Dallas Crane, Grinspoon and many others. Hoodoo Gurus who have earnt their household name, are up there with the greats in the industry having produced songs like What’s My Scene, Like Wow – Wipeout , Bittersweet and I Want You Back. These smash hits have gone on to become quintessential Australian classics that continue to be staple tracks on radio playlists today.
We’re really excited we’re gonna be playing in The Hunter soon. I love music and I love wine, so what could be better than to put ’em both together? Hoodoo Gurus, You Am I, Ratcat at Hope Estate? As they say in the trade, that’s a top drop! Dave Faulkner
You Am I are without doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock n’ roll bands. Two and a half decades on from their first album release, You Am I have not only had one of the longest and most successful recording careers in Australia, but are also without doubt one of our most loved live bands.
Featuring guitarist and vocalist Tim Rogers along with band mates Russell Hopkinson on drums, Andy Kent on Bass, and (since 1999) Davey Lane on guitar, You Am I have released ten studio albums to date. The band have won a total of Ten ARIA Awards including Album of the year, Best Group, and Best Independent Release.
