The Honey Sliders are bringing the sights and sounds from 1969 back to life - live on stage, in front of a vivid screen projection.

Famously, 1969 gave us the ‘peace and love’ of Woodstock, only a month after the world stopped to watch Neil Armstrong take his giant leap onto the moon’s surface. It was the year The Beatles released their last album Abbey Road, and movies like Easy Rider and Midnight Cowboy broke new territory and were the first of a new generation of rogue film makers. 1969 also witnessed the end of flower power as The Rolling Stones and The Hell’s Angels raised the devil at their free concert in Altamont - all this happened while the Vietnam and cold wars raged.

The Honey Sliders will play the soundtrack to these events and more, in front of a movie projection that pulls you through space and time - right back to ‘69. You’ll hear artists like The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Canned Heat, David Bowie, The Band, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Who, Sly and the Family Stone, Led Zeppelin, Tony Joe White and more…

The Honey Sliders are a band made up of some of the most respected musicians in Australia, including the multiple award-winning Danny Widdicombe (The Wilson Pickers, Bernard Fanning, Tim Rogers, Shane Nicholson), Dan Mansfield (You Am I, Gin Club), Bos Borley (Bernard Fanning, The Resin Dogs), and Ben Carstens (Mexico City). The Honey Sliders meticulously recreate these songs that have touched the hearts of so many people around the world. 

Come watch The Honey Sliders perform the soundtrack to the events of 1969 - the year that marked the end of the most tumultuous decade of the twentieth century.
