The original lineup of the Ted Mulry Gang will play their first Newcastle show in 20 years at Belmont 16s on Saturday, December 10.
Les Hall, Gary Dixon and Herm Kovac will take to the stage together for the first time in 25 years with Ted Mulry’s younger brother Steve on vocals and original AC/DC member, Mark Evans on bass.
With the passing of Ted Mulry in 2001 it is only fitting that his younger brother Steve fill his shoes. Steve sang 2 songs with the band at the Gimme Ted Benefit in 2001 and got the thumbs up from big brother.
Drummer Herm Kovac announced, “The band is excited to do some shows and we feel Steve and Mark are the perfect fit. Newcastle has always been one of our favourite cities with Les and I having lived there for some time. Our roadie Ron still lives in Belmont so he can walk to the gig”.
About Ted Mulry Gang
The band had a string of hits in the seventies with Jump In My Car hitting the number one spot forty years ago after being discovered as an album track by a Newcastle DJ.
Other hits like Darktown Strutters Ball, Crazy, My Little Girl, Jamaica Rum, Heart of Stone and many others will feature in what promises to be a an unforgettable night of Rock and Roll. The band also pays tribute to Ted by performing Julia and Falling In Love Again, which were hits for Ted as a solo artist prior to TMG.
The 16 footers is the perfect venue for the “This Ones For Ted” tour as the 16s was the last venue the band played in Newcastle.
