"Shadoz" is Australia's annual tribute to guitar legends THE SHADOWS and other instrumental greats.

The 8th anniversary of  "Shadoz"  was held on Sunday 12 June 2011 at the Northcote RSL in High Street, Northcote (Melbourne). We had to acknowledge the sad passing of two of our favourites in recent months – firstly John Barry, the music man behind the classic James Bond movies and a host of other familiar movie themes. Of course, you’ve probably all heard that Jet Harris passed away on March 18 – Jet was the original, and some say the best, bass player with The Shadows, and indeed it was he who actually came up with the Shadows’ name. We paid tribute to John and Jet throughout the day.
