AREA-7 & 28 DAYS – ROLL THE DICE TOUR, THE CAMBRIDGE HOTEL, FRIDAY, JULY 22ND
Melbourne’s thriving alternative scene in the late 90’s produced a swag of new bands and talent … Two bands that emerged from that scene and have stood the test of time are 28 Days and AREA-7…Take a step back to when live bands and festivals ruled – “Roll the Dice” with 28 Days and AREA-7 as they roll into Newcastle.
Melbourne’s 28 Days are known for their hard hitting rap rock, punk rock and hip hop music.
Area-7 rose from the ashes of Madness cover band Mad Not Madness. In 1994 three members, Dugald McNaughtan (keyboards), Charles “Chucky T” Thompson (guitar) and Dan Morrison (drums) left the group and began to write their own songs. They formed a band and named it after a lyric from The Specials’ Dawning of a New Era. In 1996, singer Walter Eskdale left and the band recruited John “Stevo” Stevens, formerly of rockabilly band Yeah Yeah!, to vocals. Alistair Shepherd (sax), Toby Dargaville (trumpet) and Rohan Pacey (bass) all left in approximately 2002, and were replaced by Paul West (trombone) Matt Sanders (trumpet) and Chris Meighen (bass).
