Hard and Classic Rock with side experiments in techno, jazz and many other styles.


OzTronix started work in Melbourne in the early 1990's, did several gigs and produced several records, including a 10-song CD, which was mastered at the band-owned studio.

The initial lineup was Mark Fogarty (guitars, vocals), Michael Vranic (guitars/vocals/AV production), Brian and Simon (keyboards & drums). The style was Hard Rock. The band was called 'Foghorn' until 2001.

During 2001, the band changed its name and structure: Michael and Mark (guitars/vocals/keyboards, production...) Lisa Patterson (bass/vocals/multi-instrumentalist). Several other changeable female vocalists also cooperate with the band.

The band sometimes plays as a trio, sometimes as a quartet, depending on the need, using the latest state-of-the-art equipment, and combining this with a deep knowledge of rock, to create an advanced yet innovative sound on today's scene.

The show is owned and organised by OzTronix including the equipment especially chosen for playing various music styles as the band does.

Individual members have a great deal of experience in the entertainment industry, working with some of the world's greatest artists.

Michael has years of experience in the European music industry,(doing everything from stadiums to hotels, and a/v production). Lisa has experience performing as a vocalist and instrumentalist and has worked with some of the industry greats, on a variety of projects... Mark has been writing songs for well over ten years and his artistic contribution originally supported the backbone of OzTronix.

The sound is normally multi-styled: rock/metal/grunge/techno & dance, with combining these styles on different songs. We call it 'rock fusion'. Please, relax, and enjoy!!!

As you can see from the list below, we have been quite busy and in-demand!
