The Ghostriders were well-known as part of the Warrnambool live music scene in the 1960s and 1970s. The Palais in Warrnambool’s Koroit Street was the place to go to see touring acts and local legends alike. The Ghostriders had a legendary 10-year reign of the centre stage at the Palais. Sounds of the Ghostriders are reforming for a special performance as part of Rock the Clock 2017.
