“Money for Nothin was formed in 2017 as a tribute to one of the world’s most popular bands from the 70’s and 80’s – Dire Straits. The musicality and attention to detail has made this show a must see for any rock enthusiast, guitar lover or Dire Straits fan!”
“Fronting the band is Terry McMahon – with extensive experience in the Australian music scene, Terry recreates the famous Mark Knopfler guitar technique and vocal with an uncanny likeness. Playing all the riffs and solos exactly as they were played originally and recreating the signature tone of those famous guitar riffs and solos has been his quest for a long time, and it shows! The 6 piece live band are all experienced players."
