Trataka

Saturday 2nd Sep 9:00pm - Sunday 3rd Sep 12:00am

Trataka

The Beach Hotel
99 Frederick st Merewether
Newcastle, NSW  2291 Map

Trataka is a high energy hard rock covers band from Newcastle , that consists of 4 excellent and experienced musicians that are all at the top their game.

Featuring on lead vocals is Newcastle’s favourite captivating rock diva Donna Andrushack. With loads of rock chick passion Donna delivers a true rock style with the aim to get the audience involved and always leaves the crowds mesmerized and begging for more.

On both the lead and acoustic guitars and with at least 15 years of live experience is the left handed guitar maestro Tony Camillo. Tony plays the more complex guitar solo’s note to note and with ease. You will always see people doing air guitar at the very front of the stage to Tony’s killer guitar riffs.

Drumming with a classic true hard rock hitting style and with the double kick as an asset is the flamboyant and exceptional JC . JC also has a fantastic vocal ability and likes to show his further diversity by singing a popular tune or two during Trataka’s great performances.

Playing the groove and adding extra colour to the sound, and on a 5 string bass guitar is Lee Stanton. Lee loves to rock out and push the elements of the band Trataka to new heights.

All band members also sing and harmonise.
