Zoran was diagnosed with the disease not long after the Chocolate Starfish reunion was announced which is way the shows did not go ahead.

Zoran’s mates will gather for the event. ‘One Night In October – A Concert for Zoz’ will feature Screaming Jets, Models, Boom Crash Opera, Pseudo Echo, The Badloves, Billy Miller (The Ferrets) plus his band Chocolate Starfish. James O’Neil from Gold FM will host the night.

Chocolate Starfish hit the Aussie charts in 1993 with a cover of Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain’. They then followed up the first hit with ‘Mountain’, ‘Four Letter Word’ and ‘Accidently Cool’.

These days, Zoran and Starfish drummer Darren Danielson founded FUR Group and manage Boom Crash Opera, Sean Kelly and Skybombers.

‘One Night In October – A Concert For Zoz’ is on tonight at Trak Nightclub in Toorak from 7.30pm.

Tickets will be available at the door, from Fur Group on 03 9528 5045, from or by phoning 136100.
