Cola Koala are a very recent band that formed at Rock Scholars in April 2016 and made up of long-time students Paddy (drums) and Keir (bass), joined by two new members Gus (guitar) and Evan (vocals).
In just 3 short months this band has already developed an easily identifiable sound and a solid foundation of rock covers from the 70s through to current day. The focus in the second half of 2016 is starting to build a set of original material.
Mango Tango's dreamy electro-influenced pop is rapidly winning a firm following amongst Rock Scholars regulars and this could be the big band to emerge from 2016.
The well-matched harmony vocals of Katie and Sam, with very strong instrumental support from Max and Adam on bass and drums, sets Mango Tango apart. Their latest self-penned track Legoland is a delightful snatch of summer - look out for more new material in October.
Despite an average age of only 15 Mixed Signals are already veterans of the Rock Scholars scene with a string of live performances behind them at major Perth venues like HQ, The Rosemount, and The Garage.
A bouncing set made up of all original material is boosted by just launched single 'Insomnia' which can be picked up on Soundcloud or Triple J unearthed. Check out their FB page for regular news on upcoming gigs.
Dream of Empire
DoE are a classic power rock trio and fast developing a reputation as the hardest hitting of the current crop of young Rock Scholars bands. Led by the sizzling guitar playing of dynamic front man Alex, the engine room of this band provided by Si (drums) and Kyle (bass) has the audience jumping in the aisles every time this band hits the stage.
Lots of new material in the pipeline, make sure you catch this band live at the next Rock Scholars gig in September.
These 3 guys joined our band program together in April 2016 and made an immediate impression. Mentored by the mighty authoritarian Sam Blitvich - who became an immediate fan - Aaron, Aymon and Shaun have won everyone over with their unrelenting approach to their music and their amazing independence and self-determination.
The band are currently working on new material while basis Aaron is on tour in the US but will be back together on stage in September.
Lola, Luca and Liam form the nucleus of this band and have recently been supported by stand-in guitar player Billy.
Multi-instrumentalists who are incorporating ukulele and keyboards into their eclectic sound, Parklife are quickly developing into one of Rock Scholars most versatile bands and are joined this term by new guitar player Paddy. With their focus starting to shift to original composition we are really excited to see what these guys will produce during term 3.
