Snap Scene: Dave Eastgate and Boner Contention, Frankie’s Pizza, Sydney 9th March 2022

Dave Eastgate is BACK! The one and only comedic king of Hard Rock Karaoke returned to Sydney to re-launch this iconic event. Dave directs the good, the bad, and the unforgettable for all willing to ride the wave.

No event signifies the march back to full swing Frankie’s flavour like the return of HARD ROCK KARAOKE. Our weekly Karaoke event changed the face of Sydney’s late night landscape. A disruptive power punch to the throat of all things tired, predictable and uninspired. Never before had Sydney seen an event as manic, satanic and problematic. The cast of unlikely regulars lining up for a weekly dose of Classic Rock catharsis live onstage was entirely unprecedented and unlike anything we could have imagined when creating the concept.

In fact, the one constant at Frankie’s Hard Rock Karaoke is the wildly unpredictable playout of events. Magic and misfortune waltz to the beat of Bobby Brady’s drum, there are tears, there is tragedy, there is triumph, and there is great glory. Husbands & wives have met under the pressure cooker of the Frankie’s Pizza stage, a place where for this one night a week, novices and nobodies are welcomed with the same embrace as the world renowned masters of the Hard Rock realm.
