LEAD vocalist SHIRLEY ALVES fronts SUCCOTASH, a new band featuring bass guitarist PETER GILCHRIST, drummer LYLE GOODMAN and lead guitarist DAMIEN WATSON on Friday night at the Grand Hotel. Alves performs songs by popular female artists such as ARETHA FRANKLIN, BABY ANIMALS, NATALIE IMBRUGLIA, MADISON AVENUE and KILLING HEIDI, among others. Gilchrist can also be seen with Alves on Sunday afternoon at the Wangi Hotel from 3pm. The SHIRL & PETE duo performs 'more laid-back' material by artists such as TINA ARENA, BACHELOR GIRL, BLONDIE and EAGLE EYE CHERRY.

HORROR ROCK: FOUR Newcastle bands will mark Black Friday by performing in a tribute night to US 'rock horror' band THE MISFITS. Newcastle bands CASE FOR JEFFERSON, IRRELEVANT, CONATION and FMD will perform two Misfits covers each on Friday night at the Hunter on Hunter Hotel. DAVID BUNTING, from CASE FOR JEFFERSON, said at least one band, Conation, would don the face paint and spiky costumes worn by the punk rockers. Punters will see their last Case For Jefferson show at the gig, with band members splitting to go their own separate ways.

JAZZ DIVA: CRITICS rave about jazz vocalist JANET SEIDEL, who will perform on Sunday afternoon at the Northern Star Hotel. Often compared to PEGGY LEE, DORIS DAY and BLOSSOM DEARIE, Seidel has performed in Japan, London, Stockholm and the Greek isles since 1982, when she left a teaching career to pursue performing. In recent years she has co-produced half a dozen CDs with brother David, one of which, THE WAY YOUR WEAR YOUR HAT, was named vocal album of the year by THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN in the jazz category of 1998.

LUCKY 13: ROCK'N'ROLL covers band MELTING POT will mix in well at the Stag & Hunter Hotel on Friday night. Audience members are encouraged to get into the Black Friday theme with fancy dress. The hotel will supply special black drink concoctions.

CHUNKY TOWN: TAKE chunkarama riff rock and add a healthy measure of melody and humour and you have Newcastle band CHIN CHEN, who play this Friday night for THE JAM FACTORY at the Nelson Bay PCYC. Joining Chin Chen on the all-ages bill will be TWO TONNE MONK and SELLOUT.
