The “Increasingly Infamous Tasmanian Devils” themselves, consists of the following musicians: Jonathon B – Guitar + Vocals, Myles ‘Flash’ Flood – Guitar, Tom “Bam Bam” Brockman – Drums, Dave ‘The Doctor’ Walsh – Bass
Inspired by their strong musical bond Jonathon Barwick and Tom Brockman created, in 2004, what is now known as TABERAH. The bands sound and live performance is derived from a vast range of influences including the traditional heavy metal stylings of Iron Maiden + Black Sabbath, the rock n roll swagger of AC/DC + Thin Lizzy mixed with the over the top, tongue in cheek theatrics of Queen + The Darkness. All with a slightly modern and original twist.
Taberah quickly became a staple act in the Tasmanian live music scene in 2006 and have now become one of Tasmania’s top exports aroundAustralia in any musical genre. In early 2011 TABERAH blitzed a nationwide vote then were hand picked by Lemmy Kilmister himself to open forMotorhead (UK) on the Sydney leg of their 2011 Australian tour.
Other milestones include sharing the stage all around Australia with high profile international and national acts such as:
Paul Di’anno – ex Iron Maiden (UK), Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens – ex Judas Priest/Iced Earth/Yngwie Malmsteen, Blessed by a Broken Heart (USA), LORD(AUS), Psycroptic (AUS), Black Majesty (AUS), Steve Grimmett – formerly of Grim Reaper/Lionsheart/Onslaught (UK), Elm Street (AUS), Darker Half (AUS) and many more national and international acts.
TABERAH deliver a show that is full of energy, fun, theatrics, wandering solos and plenty of crowd interaction. This earning the quartet a solid reputation of being a “must see” live band.
