CLUB WILLOUGHBY – 13 SEPTEMBER 2019
Our next show is on Friday September 13, 2019 when we bring to life the event that launched the famous 'Summer of Love' in 1967 - The Monterey International Pop Music Festival.
This will be a very special night, in which band members will also pay tribute to the creator of this incredible show, the recently departed and already sadly missed, Damien Lovelock.
Opening the show is is teenage Indie Rock band, Amish Tech Support. If you like bands such as Green Day, Powderfinger, Jet and Blink 182, chances are you’ll like what these young North Shore rockers are doing.
MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL TRIBUTE
“To hear Amanda Easton-Morel sing Grace Slick and Janis Joplin is to die and go to Hippie Heaven!" – BRIDGE Hotel, Rozelle
Most of the world hadn’t heard acts like The Who, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding until Lou Adler, the renowned Los Angeles record producer and John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, created the Monterey International Pop Festival.
For “three days of understanding” (as Eric Burdon sang), from June 16 to June 18, 1967, the event that launched music festivals into the public consciousness forever, took place at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California. This iconic event ushered in the famous Summer of Love. Quite simply, without the Monterey International Pop Festival, there would have been no Woodstock.
AMISH TECH SUPPORT
“They're only teenagers, but these guys are already Australia's Green Day!”

Born on the North Shore and in The Hills district, Amish Tech Support is the spring in the step of Sydney’s Live Music scene.
Influenced by the likes of Green Day, Powderfinger, Jet and Weezer, these guys are bringing back the fun Rock ‘n’ Roll vibes of the '90s and Noughties. They play a mix of Pop / Punk / Rock and alternative music that has seen them win Band Comps. all over Sydney and the opportunity to record with Sony Music.
