The Rockstar Bar

RSBF 004

The RockStar Bar is Melbourne’s new home of Rock ‘n’ Roll!

Not just for the locals of the Mornington Peninsula, it will be a major tourist destination for all Melbournians, Australians and the international community.

Situated in the heart of the vibrant waterfront of Frankston – which has long been a centre for the arts – The RockStar Bar’s retro feel will take you back to the classic days of The Rainbow, The Whisky Au-Go-Go and Studio 54, all the while merging with modern sound, lighting and production techniques.

The ambience promises to create a space for lovers of rock music to call their own.

The RockStar Bar is a place you’ll want to be seen at – the team have globe-trotted the world and seen the best of the best. Now they’ve brought it home for everyone to enjoy!

With more than 30 years in the music industry as musicians, promoters, technicians and punters between them, The RockStar Bar’s proprietors began to develop an idea… the seed was planted and the decision was made to bring a venue of such quality to Melbourne.

With a well-stocked bar and wall-to-wall music memorabilia, this is a true fest for the music buff and rock historians out there.

Their team of dedicated staff want you to feel genuinely comfortable upon entry, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the vibe – there’s plenty of parking, easy access and it’s close to public transport, with an ethos focused firmly on bringing the best of national and local acts to Melbourne’s often-neglected South East and Mornington Peninsula region.

Whilst initially concentrating on a diverse musical roster, The Rockstar Bar will eventually expand to incorporate all elements of the arts, from music workshops and clinics to film nights and art shows. It’ll soon grow to implant itself as an Iconic part of the musical landscape of the Mornington Peninsula and the nation.

Headlining their opening event is the AC/DC tribute band, Thunderstruck.

When it comes to tribute bands, you can’t go past this show. Thunderstruck is not only one of the best tribute shows going around, they are regarded as the best AC/DC tribute in Australia.

Thunderstruck gives you the full spectacle, so you not only have a great musical tribute, but a fully-fledged show that will leave you feeling as if you have just witnessed AC/DC themselves in the ’70s! Lead vocalist, B.J. Vernal sounds so much like Bon Scott on early AC/DC records you’d be forgiven for thinking “he’s possessed by the great man’s spirit”, as many fans have put it.

Opening the night (Saturday 7 May) will be the Melbourne debut of Shout At The Devil – The Motley Crue tribute we’ve been waiting for, with a full make-up and costumed show! Focusing on classic early Crue with music from Too Fast For Love, Shout At The Devil and a few hits from later albums, tickets will be available at the door and, 1300 GET-TIX, on and all moshtix outlets.

The first 5 people to text ROCKSTAR to 0414 352 225 will win free entry for two, plus a free drink to boot!
