Original Masters Apprentices Members to Reunite at Adelaide Fringe
For the first time in 50 years most of the original members of the Masters Apprentices will play a fully professional concert in Adelaide tonight.
The band, now billed as the retrofitted '1965 Masters Apprentices', will give our newest Fringe venue The GC an impressive debut with its first 'SOLD OUT' show*.
They also will 'jump start' the Fringe, which opens officially tomorrow.
The show reunites original, surviving M&A members Mick Bower, Gavin Webb, Brian Vaughton and Rick Morrison; augmented by musicians Rob Pippan, Polly Politis, Nanette Van Ruiten and Craig Holden.
Their warm up and sound check at The GC's preview launch earlier this week nearly lifted the roof!
The band is part of The GC's 'Icons & Tributes' series also featuring the Brewster brothers (Angels) Moonshine Jug & String Band; former Spectrum front man Mike Rudd in RETROSPECTRUM; RUMOURS, The Fleetwood Mac show; ABBA GOLD featuring the Flaming Sambucas (also 'SOLD OUT'); BLESS MY SOUL: The Gospel Music of ELVIS; Andy Seymour's High Falutin' Playboys in REDNECK JAZZ; Gary Burrows as John Lennon in ORANGES & LENNONS; plus the long-awaited return of the Bald Eagles (sold out in 2015).

So - fasten your seatbelts and "turn up your radio". Better still, come relive your youth and feel the vibe LIVE - Feb 11 through 21st.
