That’s pretty cool. Sorry… I forgot to mention the band…. I distinctly remember leaving there on more than one occasion, just in time to… For even more gigs check the War & Peace page in our database. ears later I was used as a lesson in the re-training of staff at Jands for power. Yes it was a crazy and fun place. Peter it was a great time for sure. What a time we had. Here is my email. Luckily they had a drink menu and I spotted something that looked familiar, Bacardi & Coke for $1.20. One of my Favourite Venues! And carlotta with her drag show ☺, My mother worked there in the 70s as a bar manager i think.
What are your memories of War & Peace? / Mark Gibson There was a short in the lighting system and in the second last song of the gig – strangely called “Notice Me” – I reached up with the mic in my hand, covered in sweat and grabbed the in-house lighting bar that ran across the top of the stage front, and zap, I copped the full force.
The “lifesaver”, as it was widely known, started out as a wine bar in a couple of terrace houses but eventually, walls were knocked down to… Miss the old War and Peace. / Plus the security guys…PJ…I remember him,Kiwi…a Maori guy.Paul(another kiwi).Barrie who met and married Mary.Lots of memories…great place to be in ones early 20s.
I would regularly see two or three bands per week from the time I was old enough to pass for 18.
Last stop is a disused Chinese Restaurant in Station St, once known as the nightclub Lucky Lil’s that has been transformed into nightclub central.
It was a great band venue and even one Christmas eve they had Izzy Dye throwing frozen chickens into the audience, I caught one. The Bondi Lifesaver was a staple of the Sydney music scene for almost 10 years from 1971 until it closed with a bang on the 31st of August 1980.
Dave, the head tech was actually at the gig and saw it happen…..there you go….the old War & Peace….. For a few years in the 70’s my wife & I were living in a unit @ Nth.
1/9/1983: War & Peace with Hoodoo Gurus and Soft Toys. . I guess my curiosity is whether a girl called Eva. I have made 2 comments before relating to seeing DRAGON , Mark Hunter at WAP in the 70s, but I’ve not seen a reply . I am desperately trying to find my father Mick and this is where they met. Yes W&P was a great place to be back then. Anyway my mate who had been there before stepped in and explained that I would love a meal and we were in. Is Mick King a Muscian.

WAR and Peace is better known as a literary masterpiece but in 1970s Parramatta it was the name of one of the city’s most notorious nightclubs—and it was wild.
This is also known as Online Behavioural Advertising.
I think it was on the corner of Ross street. Deb Patterson…known then as Debbie Clark.Please pass my regards to mum and dad for me.
Antion was the owner btw.
Yes that’s right Shaun. Awesome! Not sure she worked there? Once we had Billy Thorpe (Most People I Know Think That I’m crazy) playing and the manager told us to make everyone sit down. I was in a band called the Aviators that played at WAP often in the 80’s. Are you on face book. Awesome venue. I went round the corner and took my black socks off and put them over my shoes and went back to the door – the bouncer pissed himself laughing and let me in – no way would that happen these days – happy memories. regards, Spider. Hi Jennifer. We are trying to find a Bruce Moir who also worked there around this time.

A few Karen Penn’s but appears only one probably the right age and lives in Canberra. “People used to go out closer to home,” he tells us, which is why Parramatta CBD was once home to more than 20 nightclubs in the 70s and 80s. I’d been to a pub or two & seen some bands but this was like, at least in my 17 year old head, the big time!
Some big nights! You know we were living the best decades in Australian music history and at the time we didn’t realise it. Izzy used to be one of the first late night infomercial people on TV. At least some memory works.
5/5/1983: War & Peace with Matt Taylor
I’d love to see that flyer if you get a chance. Kevin borich. / And a long walk home.
I’d been to a pub or two & seen some bands but this was like, at least in my… Songs like disco inferno and lets not forget the golden oldies from Grease… Wow!! Next stop is Fitness First in Macquarie St, once home to a nightclub where punters would have been getting physical on the dancefloor, rather than the exercise equipment. 65 comments I was a member of “The War & Peace Band” That opened and played at this venue Monday to Thursday back in 1976 (I Have live recordings from the venue) Then we played in Newcastle Fri day & Sat at the other venue that Warwick Miller owned – “The Castle Grape & Grill” Steel St Newcastle

Just thought I’d add some more gigs played at the War & Peace, 15/4/1982: War & Peace Hotel Supporting the Hitmen They weren’t on,I think they were on there way to the USA for bigger & better things, so we got “DRAGON” instead,& that was great ..We now live on the Gold Coast Qld.
