Intel's Philip Cronin and his band mates performed live at the Sandringham Hotel in the Sydney suburb of Newtown last month.
The band, formally known as The Tarps and now sporting the new name, Unlucky, brought down the house with Indie hits from The Clash, You Am I, The White Stripes and a guest saxophone solo from Ro Wright.
Along with Cronin as lead singer, Unlucky consists of a galaxy of IT stars including former Symantec vice-president, John Donovan (lead guitar), Impact Finance's Enda Mahoney (bass guitar), AnimalLogic's Brendan Donovan (rhythm guitar) and The Marketing Factor's Andrew Donovan (drums).
In the past the Sandringham has housed rock and roll royalty such as Inxs, Midnight Oil and Billy Bragg. Unlucky shot a video of the night, which will be a part of a documentary on their exploits that will be appearing on YouTube. The band has already hit the studio to record a new CD that will be out just in time to put in the Christmas stocking.
