The Australian Tornadoes - Cowboy For A Night
http://www.thetornadoes.com.au - Reputed to be the longest running working band in the world, the fabulous TORNADOES formed in Wollongong (NSW Australia) in 1960 and have played continually since that time at that country’s premier dance venues.
Fans have always regarded the Tornadoes as "their own". Known throughout the region for over four decades, the fabulous Tornadoes have provided top class entertainment to countless audiences.
The band’s modernised version of that long time classic Ghost Riders (in the Sky) gained huge success at dance and country venues throughout Australia, Britain and the United States and reached Number 6 on the national dance charts across America.
With that success behind them, the TORNADOES negotiated a recording contract with Arcade and Sony / BMG records for release of Ghost Riders in Europe and Australia.
In 2006, the TORNADOES were selected to be a part of the Best of the Best tour of New Zealand. As well as the TORNADOES, the tour featured some of the biggest stars of the Australasian music scene of the past 40 years including Sharon O’Neill, Ray Columbus ( Invaders fame ), and Australasia’s King of Rock and Roll Johnny Devlin. Having played in 11 major cities across New Zealand, the TORNADOES captivated audiences and earned a new legion of fans from across the Tasman. The tour, organized by Pacific Entertainment of Auckland, proved to be one of the most successful tours of New Zealand that year.
Members of the fabulous TORNADOES are Fred Marsh, David Goodger, Harry Mitchell, Rainer Bruckmann, Wayne Rogers and Paul Ainger.
The TORNADOES strong point is their ability to deliver a repertoire consisting of over 40 years of great music. Lead vocals by Fred and Wayne and harmonies by David, Paul and Harry, together with the raunchiness of the rhythm section, form the nucleus of the TORNADOES captivating sound.
The TORNADOES sound is a unique blend of rock and roll to boot scootin’ rock and country to classic ballads which always leave the fans wanting more.
Music fans are always left satisfied after a TORNADOES gig because the fabulous TORNADOES put dance in your pants!
