The current members of the band include Chris Allen on lead vocals, replacing Reg Presley who died in 2012, Chris Britton on guitar and backing vocals, Pete Lucas on bass and backing vocals and Dave Maggs on drums.

Tickets to the show will cost $45 and are available at the hotel now.

Then on November 12, Australia's beloved pop group Mental as Anything will perform at the hotel.

Their hits include several Australian top 10 singles, including If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too, Too Many Times, Live it Up and Rock and Roll Music.
