Mulga Bore Hard Rock

April 20 @ 9:00 pm - 10:10 pm

Mulga Bore Hard Rock is a six-piece band of brothers and cousins from the remote Central Australian community of Akaye, two hours northeast of Alice Springs. This group of teenagers, aged 14 to 19, brings their own style of hard rock from the heat of the desert. But it’s not just any kind of hard rock: think original songs inspired by the GLAM hard rock of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s greats such as KISS, Status Quo and Guns N’ Roses, written and performed by lead singer/songwriter Alvin Manfong. Formed at their tiny school of 12 students, the band opened for their heroes KISS – yes, that KISS – on the End of the Road tour. They sing in English and Anmatyerre, and opened First Nations festival Yirramboi in Melbourne/Naarm. They were selected for Music NT’s Bush Bands Bash, have performed at Desert Song Festival in Alice Springs, Share the Spirit Festival and St Kilda Festival in Melbourne, and Mona Foma in Hobart, and have opened for iconic Aussie reggae band No Fixed Address.
