Getback

GetbackGetback is an Adelaide based rock 'n' roll band who re-live the great sounds and fun times of the 50's and 60's era. 

With two main vocalists and up to three part harmony, a very wide range of songs are covered during a single performance. The members of the band include, Richard Przesniak (vocals and keyboard), Alan Reeves (drums and back-up vocals), Bernie Mitchell (lead guitar, harmonica and back-up vocals) and Dennis Neville (vocals and bass guitar).

From slow cheek to cheek hits, to swing, to rockabilly, to full-on rock 'n' roll, they are all there. The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ol'55, Daddy Cool, Stray Cats and Eddie Cochran are just some of the artists the band pay tribute to. The band pays special attention to ensure that all songs are danceable, so a good time is guaranteed.

Although each individual member holds many years of experience, Getback was formed in March 1995, and is now in its fourth line-up.  Since its formation, Getback has been one of Adelaide's hardest working bands and has released / recorded four CD’s to date.
