Unlocking The Doors set out to capture the Shamanistic presence of Jim Morrison, the hypnotic bass lines and swirling keys of Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger’s legato blues inspired guitar modality and John Densmore eclectic fusion of Jazz, Rock and Latin drum beats for the ultimate Doors experience. Unlocking the Doors are four Wollongong based musicians dedicated to capturing the magic of the live performance and sound that was unmistakably The Doors. Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin…….

    Unlocking The DOORS

    "In that year there was
    an intense visitation
    of energy.
    I left school & went down
    to the beach to live.
    I slept on a roof.
    At night the moon became
    a woman's face.
    I met the Spirit of Music."

    Come & celebrate the results of this love affair that #jimmorrison encountered for all of us to enjoy at The Bridge Hotel Rozelle, New South Wales, Australia.
