Brought together for the inaugural Blue Mountains Elvis Festival in 2013, the Legends TCB Band features 4 outstanding musicians, each a hugely entertaining performer in his own right.
Dave Hart – Keyboards / Vocals
Dave Hart, affectionately known as the “Silver Fox” amongst the 50’s and 60’s Rock and Roll Fraternity, proudly admits to an enduring career which commenced in the late 1950’s with original foundation Sydney Bands, the Heartbeats, Cannonballs and the Serpents (with rockabilly legend Ian B McLeod aka Adam as lead vocal) but his first real taste of fame was a tour of Victoria and South Australia with the legendary Ray Hoff and the Offbeats in 1960 which ignited in Dave the passion for playing initially rock’n’roll piano (Jerry Lee Lewis style) throughout the 60’s but which has developed over the years into a classic keyboard style emulating the sound and feel of the different eras.
Dave considers himself extremely fortunate to have experienced first-hand the birth of rock and roll and the growth of the music industry in Australia and truly blessed with the opportunity to play and enjoy the developing music of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
During his career Dave has performed as a keyboard/vocalist in the Midnighters (Central West NSW), Zods (North West NSW), Sidetrack, Blast from the Past, Tezza and the Twistops, the Shakers and 57 Heaven Dance Bands and has musically directed tribute shows, the Elvis Experience, Elvis and Friends, Heroes from Heaven and the 70’s Love Generation.
Now in the twilight of his career, the “Silver Fox” still loves to perform and reproduce that original sound that he heard for the first time many years ago.
Garry Lyons – Drums/Vocals
