Bongo Starkie’s Skyhooks Show – 50th Anniversary of Skyhooks

Sun 24 Sep @ 2:00 pm

Bob ‘Bongo’ Starkie, guitarist with one of Australia’s most loved bands – Skyhooks.

They lit up the 1970s with their catchy tunes and outrageous costumes. Bongo is keeping the Skyhooks’ music alive when he performs live at The Bridgeway with his Skyhooks Show.

The Skyhooks were incredibly influential on Australian music, their album Living in the 70’s released in 1974 is rightly regarded as an Australian classic, being added to the National Film and Sound archive to showcase the very best in Australian culture. Bob was inducted alongside his bandmates into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 1992, cementing Skyhooks’ legacy as one of Australia’s finest acts ever.

Skyhooks formed in Melbourne, March 1973, acquiring their flamboyant lead singer Graeme “Shirley” Strachan a year later, the band would end up touring and recording for nearly 30 years. Racking up number 1 hits like: Ego Is Not A Dirty Word, Horror Movie, Living In The 70s, Women In Uniform and Jukebox In Siberia. Skyhooks also dominated the radio waves with fan favourites: You Just Like Me ‘Cos I’m Good in Bed, All My Friends Are Getting Married, Million Dollar Riff & Balwyn Calling.

Now as a celebration of Skyhooks’ legacy, founding member & guitarist, Bob “Bongo” Starkie has put together a new band with the intention of keeping the group’s music alive. This is the only way you will see Skyhooks’ Aussie Rock anthems authentically played live.
