Rock ‘n’ Metal Revival is the brain-child of three people who are not only passionate about music but who want to be sure that Perth fans and Perth Bands have the best opportunity to showcase talent and appreciate it.
Jason is the most avid supporter of local original and cover bands and a loyal rock and metal fan from back in the day. The talented vocalist of 6 Empty Bottles, he has enjoyed European events such as Rockfest Barcelona and is looking to give rock fans more opportunity to come together with the same and worship the Rock gods as one in their hometown.
DJ Pez, founder of Ormsby Guitars, regularly travels to the USA and has seen some of the best Metal and Rock bands in the most legendary Bars in LA. Having a vision of bringing this atmosphere to you in Perth, he has an unmatchable collection of the very best tunes that he will play to you on the night between bands to ensure that you are entertained right the way through till the lights come on.
Tammy is the Founder of Perth Vet Bill Assistance, a local animal charity, and a huge rock and metal fan since her teens when Bon Jovi very first stepped out on stage and told her directly (dont tell her otherwise) that she “Gave love a bad name”. Her passion for coordinating and marketing, and her love of music and animal welfare is a perfect addition to the Rock ‘n’ Metal Revival team success.
Merging the love of music and passion for a great cause, Rock ‘n’ Metal Revival knows that Metal-heads have big hair and even bigger hearts so aims to bring them regular megga rokkin shows that also support local charities.
On August 1, 2020, The Rock ‘n’ Metal Revival Team held a Rocking show at The Boston Hotel, Northbridge, WA.
Around The Sound had a lot of feet on the street that night and we sent one of our many talented photographers, Julian Neil, along to capture the evening.
The bands to be showcased at this gig were:
She Rocks: Mega talented vocal artist, Mell B Coz from Shaved and Dangerous: A Salute to the Baby Animals put together a special line up to perform a unique mix of classic hits performed by female groups and artists. They played all of your favourite hits from bands such as Baby Animals, Lita Ford, Divinyls, Heart, Suzi Q, Hole, and more.
Hostage: The Hostage boys were back again, this time they payed tribute to a great band from the best rock era – Poison, playing all of their greatest hits.
Eruption – The Hard Rock Experience: A band packed with talent, they played a fantastic array of mixed artist cover songs from bands such as Skid Row, Ozzy Osbourne, Warrant, Van Halen, and so much more.
There was non stop entertainment with DJ Pez keeping the rock and metal tunes going between sets playing everything from the most popular classics to the most obscure – you name it, he had it!
Tickets were $20 at the door and part proceeds went to the charity; Perth Veterinary Bill Assistance Inc. a small not for profit organisation run by volunteers who helps those in financial hardship to access vet treatment for pets who are suffering from illness or accident so they are not left to suffer in pain or prematurely euthanised.
