Masuak giving a Masterclass while on tour in Australia

Written by Barman on . Posted in Maz-o-News


Australian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chris "Klondike" Masuak (Radio Birdman, Hitmen, Screaming Tribesmen, New Christs, Juke Savages, Viveiro Wave Riders and Klondike's North 40) is undertaking his first Australian tour in six years in May and June 2023. After years of requests, he will conduct a one-off Guitar Masterclass, downstairs at Petersham Bowling Club in Sydney's inner-west, on Saturday, May 20.

This is the chance of a lifetime to learn from a true master. Chris has been the main songwriter for his own bands and a key player in arranging many Radio Birdman songs. He'll talk tone and technique and take you inside the songs. Nothing will be out of bounds and you'll be able to tap his secrets.

You'll need to be an intermediate player and bring your own guitar (plus any stash you'd like signed.) Amplifiers will be supplied. 

The Masterclass will go for three hours from 12.30pm sharp. Participants will receive a T-shirt and an autographed copy of "Faith and Practice in Bedlam", the Masuak-penned book. Attendee numbers will be capped. Direct any questions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  and book tickets here.

Chris Masuak returns to Australia for national tour

Written by Barman on . Posted in Maz-o-News

cm tourSix years after his last visit to Australia, former Radio Birdman guitarist Chris “Klondike” Masuak is returning with his hand-picked local band, Dog Soldier, for a select run of East Coast shows.

Masuak and Dog Soldier will play a three week tour with shows in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and the ACT.

Masuak’s musical history reads like a muscle car ride through the mean streets of Australia’s rock and roll underground.

The Canadian-born Masuak achieved notoriety as teenage guitarist for Australia’s legendary Radio Birdman, and then waged a War Against The Jive with the country’s hardest working rock and roll band, The Hitmen.

Next came a stint with the original live version of the New Christs, followed by international prominence with the chart-busting Screaming Tribesmen.

A member of the ARIA Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Masuak has an impressive back catalogue of rock, pop and blues releases under his own name and fronting the Viveiro Wave Riders. He is now based in Galicia in northern Spain.

Dog Soldier comprises bassist Tony Bambach (Aberration, Green Spiders, ex-Lime Spiders) and drummer Stu Wilson (Aberration, The Rivers, ex-New Christs).

Their tour will re-trace Klondike’s storied career, drawing on material from his key bands - with a few surprises thrown in.
