​Get your tickets now for The Jam – Band Battle '19

Calling all music fans! The guitar licks will be hot, the beer will be cold, and you're sure to be transported to a time when you had more hair! This is a night likely to go down in history as one of the best, most raucous and rocking Old Boy events. Catch up with old school friends, support and cheer on some amazing bands and mingle with our Old Boy rock stars at iconic music venue The Triffid, owned and operated by Old Boy John Collins '87 from Powderfinger. 

This event at The Triffid is open to the wider community, so bring your friends and family.

The Old Boy bands have been chosen and the competition for the title of Best Old Boy Band will no doubt lead to some superlative performances. Old Boys from the 1960s to today are represented in this band battle, so you're sure to recognise (and enjoy) some of the music.

  • ​​Deafadders – Bryan McLennan '61

  • The Chordites – Bryce Lawrence '80 and Paul Prendergast '95
  • The John Statham Band – John Statham '78

Bands will be vying for:

  • A day in Airlock Recording Studios with Ian Haug '87 from Powderfinger and The Church
  • The opportunity to have your recorded song streamed via GYROstream thanks to Andy Wilson '79
