Rock 'n' roll at the tavern

AC/DC front man Angus Young said if you couldn't see them, see Acca/Dacca.

The nickname is now a band in its own right, dedicated to keeping the soul and energy of the originals alive.

Gladstone rock fans have the chance to see Acca/Dacca, who are still going strong after 12 years of playing, on Saturday night August 11 at the Harvey Road Tavern.

Lead singer Larry Attard said they never disappoint.

"It's the biggest on the planet next to the real thing," he said.

"We've done the Footy Show three times; we appeared on their big grand final show at Darling Harbour. We've travelled all over Australia and the rest of the world. We have an (upcoming) tour of Ireland, Spain, the UK and everything in November.''

The audience can expect to hear classics such as Dirty Deeds, TNT, Highway to Hell, The Jack, Rosie, Let There Be Rock and a mountain of other AC/DC hits.

"The thing is we cover Don Scott, who was their singer up until 1980; we cover his material as well as the latest," Larry said.

"They get to hear the old stuff that they necessarily wouldn't hear AC/DC even doing. It's two and a quarter hours; they get to hear everything.

"If people come, they have one of the greatest nights of their life.That's what people tell us."
