ILLAWARRA’S PREMIER ROCK TRIO
Dave DeRosa – acoustic guitar and vocals
Wayne Jackson – bass guitar and vocals
Rob Wales – electric guitar and vocals
One of the Illawarra’s hottest Trio’s. Three mates got together one Sunday Arvo for a couple of beers and a few war stories , about the Old Glory Days of playing in local bands around the Illawarra and South Coast , soon the guitars came out and the tunes were flying , the neighbours and friends soon started to arrive and before you know it, the crowd is begging for more and asking when can we see you guys playing the circuit again , David replied “cause we’re scared “ Rob and Wayne said “How Scared “ to which David replied “Stiff” and that’s how the name came to be
The repertoire of 60’s pop to 70’s/80’s retro to top 40 hits of today, plus many great classics along the way, “Scared Stiff ” delivers a mixed bag of songs that is sure to please every party goer.
Pushing all the boundaries “Scared StiFF ” are aiming to build a dedicated group of patrons ,that support their shows at all of their regular gigs wherever they play , and so far they have never failed to recruit new blood at any new venues. Why?
Because the guys play an enormous variety of hits, and they put on a performance to remember. Lights flashing, smoke effects, entertainment and personality;
David De Rosa – has been entertaining crowds from the age of 18. From small Pubs to Large Concert venues, David has played them all. Good honest Rock & Roll is his passion & nothing pleases him more than seeing a crowd up on the dance floor enjoying themselves.
Wayne Jackson – on Bass Guitar and vocals has been playing around the traps since the mid 1980’s. Good honest Aussie Rock & Roll is his passion, which shows with the highly polished delivery of his bass playing.
Rob Wales - has just about done it all from hard rock as a guitar player in pubs and clubs to being the front man in an Aussie bush band in Disneyland. As a more than competent Solo artist, Rob’s great guitar work lends itself to a performance which rivals most 4 and 5 piece bands.
Working together Scared Stiff will have any venue jumping , a guaranteed high energy show that has something for everyone !!!!!!
