Still no Sound Substitute for Sax Appeal



Who: Berocka
Where: Belmont 16ft Sailing Club
When: Saturday November 25, 2000

TECHNOLOGY may have enabled musicians to bring a full band sound to venues at a fraction of the cost of a live band, but Newcastle trio BEROCKA knows there are some sounds that can't be replaced.

Berocka, playing this Saturday night at Belmont 16 Footers and on Sunday at the Queens Wharf Brewery, features the gorgeous sounds of saxophonist MATT KILEY who also plays keyboards.

According to guitarist PAUL JOHNS Kiley's live saxophone is a strong component of the trio's live sound.

'You try and program a saxophone into the sequencer and it just doesn't sound as good as the real thing,' he said.

'Audiences too just love watching someone play the saxophone live.'

Johns and vocalist KERRIE REDGROVE formed Berocka three years ago after folding their band FIRST DEGREE after 10 years. Kiley joined the trio after stints with WOBBLE and REDNECK MOTHERS. The trio performs popular music from the 1950s through to the 1990s. TE
