WITH more than 120 years of music experience, tribute band Over The Top hopes to rock the lives of about 200 fans at its upcoming Doc Neeson Memorial Show at The Bassendean Hotel.
The band, which consists of vocalist Tim Watt, formerly of Ballajura, guitarists Dave Lyon and Doug Eames, drummer Ric Shinnick and bassist Pete Borg, will be performing at the hotel on June 9.
Some of the members will also be part of the opening act, Humdrum.
Bernard Patrick ‘Doc’ Neeson, who died in 2014, was an Australian singer-songwriter and the lead singer of rock band The Angels.
Eames said for the past three years, the band had performed a Doc Neeson birthday show and a memorial show at the hotel.
“We will be playing all of Doc’s songs (including) Shadow Boxer, No Secrets, Take A Long Line and Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again,” he said.
“It is almost like our anniversary – the first show was on June 28, five years ago.”
Watt said the band aimed to continue on the memory of Neeson.
“The demographic of the (Bassendean) area really likes this style of music,” he said.
“We have always been passionate about music – every single one of us.”
Over The Top will also be playing at the Newport Hotel in Fremantle on August 16.
