Special Exclusive Once Only Show

December 4th, 2015
The Angels - Brewster Brothers - Moonshine Jug & String Band - Foxtel - Thursday - 14th January - 2016

The show is a musical tour de force that chronicles, in word and song, the tumultuous path of seminal rock band The Angels through their different influences and incarnations.

John and Rick Brewster grew up immersed in music and surrounded by musicians. Their grandfather Hooper Brewster-Jones was a highly acclaimed musician, composer and conductor, as was their father Arthur.

The family tradition continued when John as a teenager began learning Bob Dylan songs on an acoustic guitar while Rick studied classical piano.

They began their first band Moonshine Jug and String Band with some close friends and quickly gained a large and loyal following.
Along the way they recruited Doc Neeson and, together with Doc, abandoned their university studies in favour of starting The Angels.

Now, for the first time ever, the story of The Angels will be told in a show which features music and musicians from the earliest days through to the present and into the future …

Presenting

Rick and John Brewster
Dave Gleeson, Nick Norton
Sam, Tom and Harry Brewster
(John’s three sons)
Spencer Tregloan, Pete Thorpe and Craig Holden
(original members of Moonshine Jug and String Band)

The Angels Set For More Big Hits

October 20th, 2015

The Angels Sponsor North Ryde Junior Rugby League Football ClubIconic Australian rock band The Angels are set to score big hits in 2016 with a whole new generation of little rockers! The band have a long history of making the ground shake, their music has provided a back drop to Australia’s Rock and Roll scene for the last 40 years and continues to do so.

In 2016, they’ll be backing the North Ryde Hawks Under 8’s in their ambitions to rock Sydney’s suburban Rugby League grounds.

The Angels have a rich history; with over 20 albums and 30 single releases with more than 3 million worldwide record sales. They are well known for their many chart topping Rock and Roll anthems including “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again”, “No Secrets”, “Dogs are Talking”, “Marseilles”, “Take a Long Line”, “We Gotta Get Outta This Place” and “Shadow Boxer.”As well as thousands of live concert performances around the world. The North Ryde Hawks 50 year history also boasts some big name NRL stars. The club has helped produce players such as Curtis Sironen, Mitchell Pearce, Dene Halatau and Matt Ryan.

The Angels Sponsor North Ryde Junior Rugby League Football ClubThe group are as keen to continue rocking Sydney as these young boys are keen to grow into the next generation of NRL stars. After hearing about the exploits of The Hawks Under 7’s throughout 2015 from their Agency Management Team, founding band members Rick & John Brewster decided to support their 2016 campaign through an Industry first Rock and Roll sponsorship!

North Ryde Hawks president Glenn Hillier said “We believe this is a first for the Rugby League and Music Industry to come together for a Sponsorship of a junior footy team and we are very proud to have the band on board“. In 2016, the Under 8’s will wear jerseys featuring The Angels distinctive script logo on the front of the jumper as part of their Major Sponsorship Agreement.

Founding member and lead guitarist Rick Brewster said “…we’ve always supported young musicians by having them tour with The Angels and we instantly loved this idea as we try to support those who are having a go”. When talking about his own family, he reminisced, “My Dad was quite a sportsman, and he always said, Remember where the victory lies, in the game, not the prize.” – Guitarist John Brewster emphasized the entire band had been parents over time, rising early Saturday mornings to take their own kids to junior sport, and whilst those days have passed for John, his loyalty to their agency management meant supporting The Hawks was an important thing to do.

Rick Brewster - Tony "Grace" Guarrera - John Brewster - (F) Luca GuarerraLead singer Dave Gleeson, who grew up in the Rugby League heartland of Newcastle said “I advised my wife on my 35th birthday that I had officially retired from the NRL, but only when I had finally resigned myself to that fact my beloved St George Illawarra Dragons were not going to call offering a contract”,

Dave’s junior club was the Cardiff Cougars in the Newcastle DJRL, he still keeps a few of his junior jerseys from those formative years and hopes that the North Ryde Hawks love their “The Angels” emblazoned jerseys to the point where they themselves become keepsakes for years to come! Certainly some of the proud parents of these little footballers, such as Craig McQuillen (Under 8’s Coach) who has grown up with The Angels as a soundtrack to life is so excited, he’s ordering his own jersey!

So… Rock On as you Kick On!

June 17th, 2015

The Angels - London Bridge Station - 3rd June - 2015It may be decades since The Angels graced the foreign shores of Europe and England however the international acclaim of their music has very much stood the test of time.

Throughout the band’s constant evolution the songs have been a mainstay both here and abroad. Shining as a testament to the global success of their many rock anthems The Angels recently returned to the northern hemisphere to a very enthusiastic reception as they performed live in England, France and Sweden.

At The Garage in London the crowd roared after every song loud enough to pin the band’s ears to the back wall, at Le Forum in Paris they sang the guitar solos and the lyrics louder than the band as well as calling for 2 complete encores after a 90 minute set and two support bands. During the huge Sweden Rock outdoor festival the crowd tripled in size as the band made their way through a set which included a special guest appearance from aussie-icon Jon English singing Fashion & Fame.

The Angels - Jon English - Sweden Rock - 6th June - 2015Fresh from their overseas stint The Angels are now looking forward to Round 2 of their 2015 national ‘A to Z’ Tour which starts at the mighty Maroubra Seals Club on Fri 3rd Jul.
