“Col Joye has hit Australia with an impact equalled by only a few world famous artists.

The group started with Col Joye, Guitar and vocal: Kevin Jacobsen piano: John Bogie, drums. They played at parties, weddings, etc. and Col always brought the house down with a song.
Col was working at a jewellery warehouse at the time a young fellow staff. His name was Dave Bridge, and he’d been playing guitar since his ninth birthday. Col decided to build the group up, so Dave joined, and then Laurie Erwin was added. Laurie played tenor sax. Next came a bass player Kevin Jacobsen.
This was a fairly big group, so they had to get big jobs. They auditioned for a job in one of Sydney’s biggest hotel lounges and landed it. After two weeks in the lounge, the public were queueing up before opening time to get in.
An Australian promoter heard of this and offered Col a spot on a show packed withAustralian and well known artists. Col and his group left the Hotel lounge for better things. Col recalls the lounge manager telling him he was a “dreamer”when said he said he was going to make records and perform.
In the Tv world, col has emerged as a unique personality, his appearances resulting in a flood of fan mail that was previously unheard of .
Col has literally stunned the public with his electrifyng performances Sydney Stadium, The mecca of entertainment in Australia, and since touring with Lee Gordon, he has proved to be world class.
The songs presented in this album, represent Col Joye’s greatest Stadium successes. Each one has ‘brought the house down” and the stadium has been shaken by tumultuous applause that has greeted Col’s performances
