The Legendary Wickety Wak became an absolute household name from their early days on the Jackie McDonald Breakfast show to their own Television series with Channel7 in the 80's and early 90's
They became the highest paid show band in Australia's history making top ten in 1990 in the Business Review Weekly for that particular year. And yet more was to come with the reformation in 2006 where their success escalated once again to a sellout 31 shows in 28days with the highlight being a standing ovation from 50, 000 people at the Gympie Music Muster.
The style was masterminded by Greg Doolan who has since been named Australian Variety Performer of the Year in mid 2000's for his own solo shows proving once again that this combination if of classy vocals and impersonations mixed with his unique comedy style invites every audience to have a necessary mind break from the harder aspects of life.
In the light of a large contingent of Wak fans wanting more, Greg Doolan brings together 3 original Wakkers including the brilliant Rob Rosenlund and Tony Jeffrey to bring to the stage the full story and behind the scenes moments of the great Wickety Wak.
The boys, along with on absolute hand selected group of musicians and Greg's wife Laura, take a comedy look at how the band formed. From Tony's history of performing at the Eurovision song contest to Greg replacing Rick Springfield in another Wickety Wak from another era to Rob and Greg belng pulled over by the police in Western Australia for singing too loud.
The show olso includes some of the more hysterical send-ups like the irreverend monk in the 3 bells song - all the chappell bells were ringing - Rob's Kermit the frog to Tony's Julio Iglesias.
Finally a tribute show with original members - how unique.........
Don't miss an opportunity to see the Masters of Showbands In The Wickety Wak Years like a Grange Hermitage (nor chateau de cardboard) -- the boys just get better and funnier with age.
