Playing their only Sydney show and first Australian gig in almost a year, the Deniz Tek Group comes to the I-94 Bar Club at Newtown's Sandringham Hotel on Sunday, February 26.

Deniz Tek Group at the Sando on Sunday Feb 26

Led by ex-Radio Birdman guitarist-songwriter Deniz Tek and this time comprising Andy Newman (ME-262, Decline Of The Reptiles, Klondike's North 40, Visitors) and Calvin Welch (Soul Movers, Earth Wind and Fire), the DTG melds a mix of Tek originals and tunes penned for his previous bands.

Riding on the back of the recent career retrospective The Citadel Years, the DTG promises the sort of high-energy jams rarely sighted on local stages these days.

Lending support are those gentlemen of fuzz and Farfisa, the Intercontinental Playboys (back from hiatus), and the entertainingly off-the-wall Men From UNCLE. Doors open at 7pm.
