If you fancy a bit of rock this weekend then your destination should definitely be the Tewantin-Noosa RSL to see one of the Coast’s top rock party bands, Industry of Kool. This Sunshine Coast band has developed a strong fan base that keep coming back for more of the band’s cool sound!
All of the band members take a turn at lead vocals ensuring they cover a wide selection of the rock genre including classic rock, medley’s, rock ballads, sing-along’s and 60’s Rock’n’Roll through to songs from the rock icons of the 80’s. Their diversity is fantastic appealing to a wide audience, with Elvis Presley, Counting Crows, Good Charlotte, Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham, AC/DC, INXS and Ray Charles just a small selection of the performers they cover.
Industry of Kool consists of Rory Quinlan on Bass and Lead vocals, Ben Richards on Guitar and Lead vocals, Dave O’Keeffe on Keyboard/Piano and Lead vocals and Keith Stevenson on Drums and Lead vocals. Each bringing their own style and influences and blending it into one very versatile band with over 100 years experience between them.
Individual members of the band have played together for many years giving them a strong background together and making this a tight act. Rory and Keith played together in the very successful top coast band, The Rocketeers. When The Rocketeers disbanded in mid 2001 Rory and Keith formed Dogs on Fire with legendary guitarist Steve Thompson, after 5 years they added Keyboardist Dave O’Keeffe which gave the band some more colour and another dimension. When Dogs on Fire came to its demise in mid 2008, Rory was looking to start up again but making the new band a bit more versatile so after adding new guitarist Ben Richards to the throw, Industry of Kool was formed and it has gone from strength to strength every since.
You can catch this diverse rock covers band on Friday 21st September in the Diggers Bar from 8pm. The ‘Koolest’ thing of all is that it’s free for members and $10 for non-members. Tickets and courtesy bus bookings can be made at reception or on dial’n’charge on 5447 1766.
