Rocktober ready to roll

October is upon us, so let the “legends” do battle! It’s gonna be a musical rampage! And Rocktober is just around the corner.


By The Phuket News

Thursday 9 October 2014, 11:00AM


Yes, for the first time, Phuket’s young, award winning Legends of Siam band and the exciting The Colin “illy” Hill Band of Phuket’s famed Lost Legends, will take the lead on stage in a non-stop whirlwind of top class music for three Fridays in October. (October 10, 17 and 24).

It is pop punk and pop rock versus classic rock’n’roll.

Rocktober will rock for more than two hours of non-stop solid rock’n’roll, punk and pop rock, rhythm and blues, and a touch of the classics at the colourful Underwood Art Factory, scene of numerous “Lost Legends” performances in 2012 and 2013 and last year’s The Phantom of the Popra.

Special guests, Lost Legends star, Pjae Stanley (October 10 and 24 only) and also and pianist and opera singer, Andrew Snape, star of successful Phantom of the Popra show at the Factory last October, will bring their unique styles to the proceedings.

Rocktober will fuse the sassy, youthful style of the teenage Legends of Siam – whose music video “Geek Gone Wild” is licensed to play in Hard Rock Cafes worldwide – and the world-class and hard-driving individualistic guitar style (echoing the classic 1970s rock era) of Colin “illy” Hill, doyen of Phuket guitarists.

What can patrons expect? From the Legends of Siam there’ll be songs by Chuck Berry, Led Zepplin, Kiss, Bon Jovi, Nirvana, Green Day and others. The group will also play some of their own songs in a “Punk” section, from their soon to be released debut album.

Splash Beach Club

From The Colin Hill Band expect a grand mixture of “guitar-hero classics” by giants of the music industry such as Mark Knopfler, Gary Moore and the late great Jimi Hendrix. There will be Neil Young, Free, traditional Chicago/Delta blues and even rock versions of classical music.

Each band will perform for an hour, then come together with guest stars.

Pjae will bring her high-tempo brand of rock, rhythm and blues and jazz, and Andrew, who will also be master of ceremonies, will deliver some songs from Phantom of the Opera and Queen’s classic, I Want to Break Free. There may even a guest appearance by a rapper!

Tickets B500 pre-sale or B700 at the door. Children 12 and under free. Show starts at 8pm sharp.
