w/ Special guest Lisa Bade


Nikki Nicholls presents The Ritual of Rock Volume 1 – Hail to the gods that rock and the divas that roll! Along with special guest Lisa Bade, Nikki and her band will honour the women that rocked in the ’70s and ’80s. Praise to Pat Benatar, Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Tina Turner, Susie Quatro, Heart, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks and more!

These rock goddesses of the ’70s and ’80s gave us solid riffs and rhythm in music that have withstood the test¬†of time. Joining Nikki on stage will be an all-star band, featuring¬†Rick Petropoulos (The Ferrets),¬†Paul Gildea¬†(Icehouse), Nik Pringadi & Davey Porter (Electric Mary). Belting out¬†half of the set list¬†is the amazing voice of Lisa Bade, with her husky gravel sound, she does Janis better than Joplin!


Nikki Nicholls is well known now as the sassy featured vocalist for the acclaimed Jam the Funk band but has also toured (and recorded) as a backing vocalist with John Farnham and with artists such as Kylie Minogue, Stevie Wonder, Suzi Quatro, Lulu and Australian Crawl. She has recently completed a National tour of her successful show ‘You’ve Got a Friend – The Songs and Story of Carole King’.

Lisa Bade recorded her album Suspicion in the USA with mega session musos including Peter Frampton, Waddy Watchel and Mick Ronson. Lisa and Nikki formed The Lovestars that had a cult following in Melbourne for many years. Also at that time, Lisa had become the pin-up girl of Pentridge! Her amazing heavy rock sound has made her unique in the Australian music Industry.

‘The Ritual of Rock’ will get your head banging and feet dancing, so don‚Äôt miss out!
