Byron Bay’s very own supergroup The Feramones are coming to Ballina RSL…….. put your dancing shoes on!
The Feramones was first conceived in the 1990’s in London when 10CC guitarist Rick Fenn was asked to assemble a band of top shelf London session musicians for the Children with Leukaemia charity ball at the Park Lane Hilton. The concept was, as it remains today, to perform tried and tested classics from the 70’s+80’s that never fail to keep the dance floor busy.
The venture was so successful, over the next ten years the band was reassembled to play numerous show biz parties and events around the UK including performances for members of the Royal family and a host of celebrity private functions.
In 2000 Rick and fellow UK guitarist and Feramones regular, Alan Limbrick, established their homes in Byron Bay. When another Feramones veteran, Alan Park (keyboardist and musical director for Sir Cliff Richard) joined the boys in Byron, the nucleus for a more permanent line up was established.
They recruited the famed Bourbon Street vocalist Col Germano, legendary Australia bassist Greg Lyon and drummer Rick Lloyd and Byron’s Beach Hotel has been their ‘home’ gig for over ten years, drawing a devoted crowd from all over the Northern Rivers.
