noasis was born December 1995
in a disused hotel room in Derby England
Initially six lads. Five who played a bit and one who wanted to be the manager. Dragged from the humdrum of big haired glam rock and electronic pop music by the sound coming from their radios, CD players and the Juke box in their local bar, they realised before any other that Oasis were going to be what the music industry and the bored angry public needed. So these lads set about performing anthems such as Some Might Say, Live Forever, Cigarettes & Alcohol, Supersonic and thus creating a snap shot for those unable to secure a ticket to the now historical shows at Knebworth, Main Road, Wembley, Glastonbury and Loch Lomond.
They called themselves noasis and went about creating a backdrop banner which accompanied them to every gig and still does today!
Jump forward twenty odd years and noasis have skipped continent and are here in Australia recreating that inspiring Wall of Sound and a visual experience that will bring generations of live music lovers together. Noel, our kid Liam and the band are the real deal. Don’t forget your bucket hats and Lennon shades... Mad fer it!!!

Darren’s first band slot was at the age of 17 as a percussionist for a politically driven original 9 piece band which had some local and national success peaking by playing on a popular Radio One slot with DJ Adrian Just. A countless number of jam bands as a drummer/guitarist and singer and lots of rehearsing brought him to front noasis DERBY UK as Liam Gallagher.
LEIBERMAN a 4 piece original Melodic Rock band who recorded and played for A/R and got close (but not quite close enough) came next and ran for a few years before splitting to do other things. Darren also worked on the live circuit as a soloist, in sessions as a singer and guitarist, and in a casual duo before emigrating to Australia in 2013.

Tom is from Derby, UK and moved to Australia in his early teens. His musical background began at birth listening to his dad’s band Leiberman, and then in stage productions with his drama school.
His childhood musical influences were very varied with the likes of Green Day and Gorillaz, Oasis, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and The Squeeze. Now days Tom is listening to Jeremy Zucker, Dire Straights, The 1975 and Rap music. Still varied!!
This is Tom’s first role as Noel Gallagher and is excited to see where performing will take him with the band.
Christian began his musical journey in the Barossa Valley in local bands as a teenager playing drums inspired by the likes of Bonham and Moon. Following his early years he ventured off to Europe where he remained for 19 years playing with many artists and also facilitating youth music development based in Dublin, Ireland.
His passion for music has brought him around the globe touring and recording — some of the artists that he has worked with include legendary producer Steve Albini, Glen Hansard and the Frames DC, Eamonn Dowd and The Racketeers, local Adelaide act Zeequil and local artist Lizzie Bradley. Chris continues to mentor youth through his company The EMU Tree based in Adelaide, South Australia.
Originally from Venezuela. Interestingly Os grew up listening and learning his craft exclusively to British rock music. With a wide and successful career as a musician and producer in South America, he moved to Australia in 2010. He has continued with his solo career and has positioned himself on the local and national scene as the bassist for the Australian band Squeaker and now with noasis.
Os brings great drive and groove to the Wall of Sound and is a massive asset to the band.
