Snap Scene: John Power Memorial – Jo Jo Zep & the Falcons & the Rock Doctors, Memo Music Hall 17th March 2019

John Power died in November last year after prolonged health problems. He was a much loved man amongst Melbourne and Sydney musicians and music lovers alike. Over his nearly 50 year career he was best known as the bass guitarist/ singer in Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons but he also played and recorded with many other great Australian bands such as Company Caine , Foreday Riders, The Rock Doctors and the Hippos.

Friends of John wanted to pay tribute to him and when asked Joe Camilleri and Chris Stockley were keen to get on board and reform two bands that John was synonymous with Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons and the Rock Doctors for a one off concert in Melbourne.

Musicians, crew and all involved volunteered their time and all proceeds were collected for John’s daughter who cared for him in his final years.
