About The Event

The Countdown era! When live bands ruled the airwaves, and Australian teenagers and parents huddled around their television sets every Sunday night to get the best local and overseas artists performing their newest hits – enter HUSH, playing hit after hit like ‘Bony Maronie’, ‘Glad All Over’, ‘Come On We’re Taking Over’ and ‘Nothing Stays the Same Forever’ in platform heels and satin outfits through roaring Marshall amplifiers. HUSH ruled the airwaves and concert stages of the 70s, defining good time rock’n’roll. The Bridgeway will Get Rocked! when original HUSH members Les Gock, Rick Lum and Choirboys' lead singer Mark Gable with full band pump out HUSH’s hits, plus Oz Rock Favourites, the tunes that influenced and shaped the story behind the songs.
