The Urge

Booking Enquiry


The Urge has always relished the great formative rock songs of the late 70s and 80s - the stock-in-trade of a working covers rock band - but the boys also have a knack for recognizing current hits along the way that will stand the test of time. A power house act with soaring vocals, big guitars, sweet keyboards and synths and a tight rhythm section - the band just loves to mix it up to prevent becoming stale. So at any show expect to hear a diverse set of hits from a diversity of artists. Although the Urge now mainly focuses on doing select shows in and around their home town of Newcastle, the band has no plans for retirement any time soon. The boys enjoy a continuing popularity at the many regional venues in which they have residencies. Boasting players from such notable acts as Jezabel's Trash, The Smarts, First Degree, Spank 'n the Monkey, Radio Ga Ga, Punkfish and The Idols. The Urge features: Muzz Roach - Vocals, Ross Flynn - Guitars, Vocals, Kane Starkey - Bass, Vocals, Gavin Hodge - Keyboards, Percussion and Chris Lowe - Drums.
