cover bands in brisbane highway 409


Highway 409 rocks the music of the greats like Chuck Berry, Bill Haley, Eddie Cochran, Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, the Everly Brothers, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, Cliff Richard & The Shadows, Ricky Nelson, Chubby Checker, Joey Dee, Bobby Vee, Booker T. & the MGs, Floyd Cramer, Fats Domino, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Ray Charles, Duane Eddy, The Drifters, Status Quo, Queen, Billy Joel, Dire Straits, The Beatles and Elton John.

Highway 409 takes you there, sometimes just the way they played it back then, and sometimes with their own modern spin on it.

These five musicians have been delighting audiences for many years as members of some of the best bands in south-east Queensland. In early 2008, they came together under the "409" banner and their individual and collective talents flourished.

It's hard to stay in your seat when the late `50s and early `60s grooves of Great Balls of Fire or Summertime Blues or Jailhouse Rock are filling the room. And the band does not limit itself to the ‘50s and ‘60s. If it rocks and it’s a good dance number, it’s probably in the repertoire.
The band is Alex Herbert (lead vocals), Ray Abbott (bass), Greg Marsh (lead guitar and vocals), Norm Hunter (keyboards) and David Jones (drums/sax).

All are experienced musicians in a variety of styles, but it's their passion for the glory days of rock 'n' roll that brings them together as Highway 409.

To quote from their repertoire: when the band plays that Old Time Rock 'n' Roll, they'll have you Rockin' All Over The World. You'll want to put on your Blue Suede Shoes and head down Route 66. In fact, by the time they've finished, we guarantee that you'll be All Shook Up!
