Let The Night Roll On With Aussie Rock Tribute
If you’ve been wondering if you are ever gonna see the faces of Dr Damage again, you will be pleased to hear their tribute show to The Angels is back.

The band returns to Bramble Bay Bowls Club this month for another night of hits from one of Australia’s biggest rock acts. 

Dr Damage’s rhythm guitarist Paul Troeger said the audience would be transported back in time to when The Angels ruled the airwaves.

“We will be playing three full sets of The Angels’ most popular songs, covering all the work from the late seventies right up to their most recent work,” Paul said.

Brisbane-based rockers Dr Damage formed in 2018, with the current line-up playing together for the last three years. Joining Paul in the band are Chris Squire on lead vocals, Peter Sillcock on lead guitar, Robert Miller on bass guitar and Jamie Buckler on drums.

Paul said they were all massive fans of The Angels.

“We grew up listening to them on the radio, watching them on Countdown and seeing them at venues like the old Festival Hall and the Rock Arena at the Mansfield Tavern,” he said.

“The original idea for the band was Pete’s and the rest of us gravitated together through old band connections and acquaintances.”

The audience can expect to hear classics like No Secrets, Shadow Boxer, After the Rain and of course, Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again.

“In my opinion, The Angels’ version of The Animals’ 1965 hit We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place gets the best reaction,” Paul said. “Everyone knows the words and the dance floor is always packed when this is played.”

Dr Damage has been returning to play at the bowls club since their appearance at The Sunday Jam in February 2019.

“The Bramble Bay Bowls Club was one of our last gigs before the pandemic and one of our first after it,” Paul said.

“We’ve had capped capacities, rules on dancing with masks, or even having the audience confined to their chairs, which is not an easy task listening to The Angels. The club has powered through all of that and continued to provide the Redcliffe area with live music.”
