The Ancient Idols band is not just
your ordinary cover band; the band has a unique ability to find musical
treasures that appeal to mature minded audiences both young and old.
bands roots can be traced back 30 years and has its foundations in good
old Australian rock & blues. The current song list covers a
multitude of artists. This is music that everybody loves - no other
bands are currently playing this type of musical selection.
a diversity of material that elicits a myriad of emotions, this band
captures the essence of the original recording but with the Ancient
Idols unique feel.
4 piece band has many years of experience and its members have played
as professionals for most of this time. Some of our ancient history
includes playing all the major venues and festivals from the 70's
through to recent times; eg: Sunbury, Thumpin' Tum, Catcher, The Espy,
Sebastians, Berties, St Kilda Festival; you name it they have played
it. Their history includes bands such as The Alroy Band, Magna Carta,
Robin & the Hoods, Big Business, Jack Rabbit & the Pubic Hares;
the list goes on!
Since forming the Ancient Idols 12
months ago the band has been doing private functions (and in its spare
time has been praying for further work!)
We are serious about our music and even more serious about having fun!
