Creedence Clearwater Revival, KISS, Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac
There is something about going out for a night at a pub and knowing you are definitely going to enjoy the music. And it is a great night because you know the lyrics inside out and back to front. You grew up with them.
Sadly, you can't always see the real bands. Many of them have long ago disbanded with some members even taking that stairway to heaven.
But tribute bands are the next best thing. They try to look and sound as close as they can to the original band - the one their audience remembers so fondly.
Most also command a high entry price as nostalgia does not come cheap. But if you are after a free night out and love certain bands then The Dingley Hotel is offering a series of free tribute nights to some all-time favourite bands.

Creedence Clearwater Tribute Show
Who could forget classics such as Bad Moon Rising, Going Up Around The Bend, Proud Mary, Suzie Q, Green River, Born On The Bayou, Fortunate Son, Have You Ever Seen The Rain, Travelin' Band, The Old Man Is Down The Road, Rock & Roll Girls and so many other great Credence Classics.
The 'HEY TONIGHT' Creedence Clearwater Show takes you on a swamp rockin' musical journey revisiting the golden years of CCR & the band's renowned vocalist John Fogerty.
Kiss Thiss provide the look, the sound and the show. There's the trademark face paint, the outrageous personas and the pyrotechnics as they deliver classics such as I Was Made For Loving You, Rock & Roll All Night, 'Shout It Out Loud, Sure Know Something, 'Shandi', 'God Gave Rock & Roll To You' and other favourites.
Friday 23 August 2019 The Australian Bon Jovi Live Tribute Show.
Offers you the ultimate Bon Jovi experience. With Anthems such as "Living on a Prayer", "Always", "Bed of Roses", You Give Love a Bad Name" and "It's My Life" to name a few, the show provides over 2 hours of high energy and truly passionate delivery.
The Australian Bon Jovi Show has toured nationally for Bon Jovi and Hard Rock Fans across the country. There is careful attention to detail and the show captures the live performance of the 2000's era with the look and stage presence almost identical to Bon Jovi's much-loved show.
The Australian Bon Jovi Show has over 50 Bon Jovi Songs in their repertoire and they typically do a two hour plus show.
Friday, 20 September 2019 Tribute to Fleetwood Mac & Stevie Nicks.
This show features classics from Fleetwood Mac's best-selling album 'Rumours' along with a showcase of Stevie Nicks' solo career. It is not just about recreating her music as closely as possible with a high-calibre band, but also the same feelings and performance that you would have if you were viewing one of the original concerts.
Dingley Village is in the South Eastern suburbs in the vicinity of Moorabbin Airport.
The Dingley Bistro is open for pre-show drinks and dinner.
For all bookings call 9551 8344.
The shows go from 8:00 pm – 11:30.
And while it might be tempting to bring the kids so that you can show them a bit about what your youth was like this is an 18 plus event so you will just have to have night out without them and enjoy yourself as if it really were the good old days.
