Star Attractions is an Entertainment Touring Company founded by Roger Felice to promote Events throughout Australia.
Roger Felice has been involved in the Industry for over 40 years, and his career spans virtually every facet of the Entertainment, Public Relations and Marketing arenas in Australia, Europe and the United States.
Beginning as a musician in the mid 60’s, Roger performed and recorded with many top artists including the Bee Gees, and he also toured England and Europe with Britain’s No.1 band, ‘Thunderclap Newman’.
Retiring as an artist, Roger was appointed as Marketing Director for J & B Records, and steadily broadened his ambitions to become one of the leading promoters of major entertainment events in Australia.
Throughout the 1980’s Roger was at the helm of the vibrant Australian pub-rock revolution involved in booking and promoting Australian and International Touring artists on a national basis… And in 1985, was enlisted as a Consultant for the ‘Contemporary Music Industry Report’ to the Australian Federal Government.
Borrowing on his PR grounding, Roger entered the world of Sports Events Marketing when he was sent to Los Angeles to oversee the promotional effort for Oz beer giant, ‘Fosters Lager’ for their AFL “World Cup Challenge”, and then went on to co-ordinate the inaugural ‘International Karate Spectacular’ – Australia Vs America – featuring Ed Parker – “The Father of American Karate”.
In the 1990’s, Roger created, managed and promoted his own unique production show: “Idolz In Concert”, which broke all house records in Major Venues across Australia and South East Asia, and was listed by Variety Magazine in the “Top Ten” shows that consistently draw the largest crowds.
Roger then took Rock’n’Roll and Hollywood direct to the Australian retail heartland; And in association with Westfield Shopping-towns, he created, toured and promoted Major mall displays exclusively imported from the U.S.A. These displays were successful in attracting record crowds and huge media attention in all participating Centres – Tours to date include:
“The Elvis Exhibition” – “The Sci-Fi Expo” – “Penny Lane Festival” – “Hollywood On Tour”
In 2000, as International Marketing Director for Internet service ‘Kidz.Net’, Roger was instrumental in steering that company’s profile from its early stage of conception, to world recognition with offices in Australia, Europe and the United States.
In 2004, Roger and Damian Negus met and collaborated together on the marketing and promotion of the opening of a new Sydney music venue and forged a creative and business partnership.
