Chevy Metal at Quiksilver Pro on Friday

Chevy Metal, the cover band formed more than a decade ago by Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters/The Birds of Satan), will play a free show at the opening stop of the 2015 World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour, the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast, this Friday, March 6th at 4:30pm at Snapper Rocks. Featuring Hawkins along with Wiley Hodgden (Bass/Vocals), Chris Shiflett (Guitar) and Rami Jaffee (Keys), Chevy Metal will rip into some deep cuts off albums by Rolling Stones, Queen, The Police, Black Sabbath, Van Halen and more. Hawkins, Hodgden, Shiflett and Jaffee are looking forward to some Gold Coast surf action, playing some rock and helping to raise awareness for the Mauli Ola Foundation. The Mauli Ola Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing hope and confidence to individuals living with genetic diseases.  Harnessing the healing powers of the ocean, the Mauli Ola Foundation introduces surfing and other ocean based activities as natural therapies. The world’s best surfers took a break from competition on Monday afternoon to spend time in the water with kids from the Mauli Ola Foundation. “Spending time with these kids is really special,” Mick Fanning, three-time world champion, said. “They were having the best time and it’s inspiring. We had a great turn out from the top surfers in the world and the kids were absolutely ripping. Thanks to Mauli Ola for organizing such a fun afternoon.” More information about Mauli Ola can be found at MauliOla.org Catch Chevy Metal this Friday, March 6th at Snapper Rocks and the world’s best surfers in the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast LIVE via WorldSurfLeague.com]]>
