Mental As Anything and John Paul Young as well as Kev Carmody, Little Patti and The Dingoes will be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame next month.

“I do feel proud and humbled to accept this Induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame, on behalf of my Culture, my Community and my Family”, Kev Carmody said in a statement.

For Little Patti, it will be the second induction for her family. “This induction into the ARIA Hall Of Fame comes as such a surprise, I wasn’t expecting it, I am so thrilled and honoured. It’s incredibly special to be joining my cousin Chrissy (Divinyls) in receiving this recognition.”

Reg Mombassa made the statement on behalf of the Mentals. “It is an honour to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame alongside all the great Australian acts who are already there and those that will be included in the future. We had no inkling of such things when we did our first gigs as an art school party band in 1976. I would like to thank the fans who have supported us and all the people in the industry that we have worked with over the years,” he said

Broderick Smith from the Dingoes said, “The last time I was inducted, it was into the army, this certainly feels a whole lot better. Seriously, the band feels honoured and privileged to be recognised by our peers by being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. For all of us, it’s going to be one hell of a reunion!”

"It's an honour to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, now point me to the lounge room, I wonder who's in there,” said John Paul Young.

The ARIA Hall of Fame will be on August 27 in Melbourne.
