Code-201OL-Vintage Jazz-Melbourne


The band gives you the genuine jazz experience from Melbourne's best working band. The group believes a good band can add atmosphere to an event without drawing the focus away from proceedings but can also provide entertainment when required. Corporate clients include BHP, L'Oreal, Ericsson, Ernst and Young, IBM, GE, Pfizer, Accenture and Telstra. In 2001 the group completed a six month contract at the Hotel Sofitel, Vietnam. Wedding performances are also a specialty. The genre is jazz but more specifically the sound is a blend of swing/blues/bossa nova and groove. Inspiration and repertoire comes from the swing of Louis Armstrong and Oscar Peterson, standards and show tunes of Frank Sinatra, smooth and subtle bossa nova of Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim and the cool and groove of Miles Davis and George Benson. The instrumental Trio is most appropriate for sophisticated and atmospheric background music but if dancing is anticipated we recommend adding our vocalist for later in the evening.

Luscious, exciting and virtuosic are words that easily spring to mind regarding both the music and the musicians themselves. Gypsy melodies, seductive tango rhythms and sensuous songs from Europe and Latin America are their staple - this is music to swoon by. They are a dynamic and vibrant trio featuring violin, accordion and bass. They perform with extraordinary emotional range from extreme delicacy to blazing intensity and more than a touch of humour. Their performances do come with a health warning: the velvety seduction of their 3-part harmonies on Latin, Yiddish and Hungarian love songs. The trio can roam and play or do a concert.

Code-292DS-musical Saw-Melbourne

Voted the most ‘Talented’ Musical Saw player (or Sawyer) in Australia,
He has once again emerged from the dark alleyways to bring a little bit of light and a whole lot of weird into your lives. You are probably all familiar with his musical saw (if you’re not, her name’s Gretel) but who exactly is this odd little clown? What other tricks does he have up his sleeve? And more to the point, how on earth does one actually find the world’s smallest orchestra when they’re so very, very small. Watch him and Gretel reveal the answers to all these secrets and more through physical comedy, story-telling, and puppetry. David puts the ‘Devil’ back into ‘Vaudeville’ and a smile upon your face.
Act 1 Musical Saw
My musical saw work can be performed in a continuous loop. Basically, I set myself up and commence serenading-performing for the punters, by playing renditions of famous tunes on my saw. I would do this for a 1 hour set.
Act 2 Skeleton Marionette work
Much the same as the above idea, I can perform with Frankie Bones (my marionette), for a similar length of time. He does song and dance numbers to pieces of old time music on a portable fold-out stage . Again, more of a walk by piece rather than a feature length show.
Act 3 Musical Saw and Skeleton Marionette work
I can also offer a mixture of the above acts with both the Musical Saw and The Skeleton Marionette, swapping between the two if the client prefers (1 hour duration).
OR
Offer a 13 minute silent clowning act incorporating the above skills, as well as some audience participation.
Acts require little more than a spot to perform on (away from the wind on days with strong winds), as well as background music that played through a small battery powered portable amp.

Code-294EGB-European-Melbourne

The group are as experienced at concerts as at the European art form of serenading at tables and taking requests as well as creating an atmosphere in a street festival.
They specializes in Jewish music and in Middle-Eastern music. They have worked together with theatre and dance events for Russian, Armenian, Jewish, Turkish, French and Italian and other productions and communities, as well as parties and weddings.
Tunes from Russia, France, Italy, Klezmer, Jazz , Classical,and Tango. Can be a trio.

Code-333CP-Drum floorshow-Melbourne

This is the ultimate ensemble to add a unique flair to your next event, party, product launch, or conference. We can deliver a group of anywhere from one through to fifteen immensely talent drummers and percussionists to create a dynamic and entertaining show which will undoubtedly impress your clients and generate a presence unlike any other.
They will not only look good and establish funky, toe tapping grooves, but will develop complex, awe inspiring visuals and movements that will have your clients’ mouths agape
The stage show is designed to capture the attention everyone in the room and provide short, sharp, hard hitting entertainment. If you need a spot quickly filled, or need a massive opening or closing to your event, this is the way to do it. As the name implies, such a performance requires some kind of stage or defined performance area in order to ensure everyone present can see and marvel at the show.
These sorts of shows generally require a group of at least nine performers and should not exceed more than roughly 10-15min. While our group is visually exciting and groovy, there is only so much that one audience can handle! That said, with enough time to develop a show and enough scope with regards to budget, there is no reason that we cannot develop a specific, tailored performance of anywhere up to 2 hours.

Code-333CPM-Marching Band

Perfect  for smaller performance, longer shows, and dynamic audiences. Unlike a stage show where the drumline is intended to take over a room and hold the attention of an audience for a defined period of time, a smaller, roving group of our most groovy drummers designed to be highly portable and entertaining
This sort of performance is perfect for public events, or any situation where you have a crowd moving through an area over a longer period of time – this dynamic audience will mean there are always new people coming along to be entertained, and as soon as an individual has seen enough, they can move on. The drumline can also quickly and easily move to other areas and quickly create hot spots of activity before moving on.
This kind of performance has been used in the past at conference stands to draw attention to a specific stand, public outdoor performances such as at the RMIT World Week to entertain a dynamic audience over a period of roughly 3 hours, and to lead important guests into dinners such as at the OTEK Australia SRR Conference. Due to the small size of our Band, the whole drumline can also take on a specific theme to suit the needs of your event – latin drummers, traditional military drummers, hip hop drummers or any other type of theme you can envisage.

Code-334IP Marching band-Melbourne

This band is a unique concept in entertainment combining a high musical standard with theatrical routines, comedy, and precision marching. Very funny and great for any event. Suitable Corporate, Festivals.

Roving shows are guaranteed to attract a crowd, and if you need to move people around a venue the Band are the ideal group to lead the way. Once everyone is arrived we can cap off the performance with a static, theatrical routine
The Band is incredibly flexible, and roving performances are a great way to entertain large, mingling crowd.

Parades
With roots stretching back to the dawn of the marching band, the Band is ideal for any type of street parade, be it a returned serviceman parade, a festival or a celebration. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, they will break into all kinds of mayhem while the Rear Admiral tries desperately to regain some form of order.
The Band has regularly performed in the Bendigo Easter Parade and has made appearances in the Melbourne Moomba parade, ANZAC Day and Melbourne Cup parades and in numerous other street parades around the country. With their colourful costumes and eccentricities.

Tattoos and arena

While they’re known for being a little naughty and unpredictable at times, the Band is a professional, polished ensemble. Anything can, and most likely will happen during a performance, and this theatrical, satirical take has been a welcome addition to tattoos and arena shows around the country. Their  performance at the 2003 Adelaide Police Tattoo was a roaring success.
Just when the audience is expecting to see another regimented, military marching band the Band will turn tradition to the wind and run amok. With their ever-so professional Rear Admiral at the helm the band regain focus and continue with their display.

Corporate and promotional
The Band is renowned for its work in the corporate entertainment industry. They have performed at Crown Casino, the Carlton Crest and Rydges hotels and at venues around Melbourne and are at home in small and large spaces alike.
The band is perfect for circus-themed events, with their Drum Major becoming a ringmaster who can move around the room ushering your guests from point A to point B. The band can make a grand entrance and form a guard of honour, or make a subtle entrance and appear out of nowhere.
Whether you’re hosting a social function or a conference, a board retreat or a morning tea, they can work with you to create a show that will leave everyone tapping their feet.

Roving 288A-gypsy and languages-Melbourne

A string quartet with a difference! Playing light classical, beautiful ambient background plus jazz & latin styles. They also play Tango, Gypsy, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Greek, Italian and Irish (just for fun). The group will tailor the music to suit the requirements of your audience and your venue. The group also has a completely mobile set-up which means it can play anywhere outdoors and in a large venue can change position several times if needed, The band is also happy to play acoustically if that is more suitable. The band loves to play gypsy music because of the combination of instruments and their common attraction towards the beautiful melodies, dramatic mood swings and high energy inherent in this Eastern European musical style. They have found a wide range of audiences responded positively to the music because of its haunting melodies, passion and liveliness. The band has also pursued the very gypsy tradition of serenading people at their tables and attempting any special requests thrown their way. The barriers between the band and the listeners breakdown - the audience often joins in singing and are more willing to get up and dance.

Because of the diverse groups of people this band plays for, other European music crept in. Hence the equally exciting styles of Tango, Jewish, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Italian, Greek, Irish, and Latin are explored.

Equally important, they play Classical music, beautiful ambient music and swinging Jazz and Latin Styles, tailoring the mood of the function to suit the venue and client, (ranging from beach shirts at poolside parties to black tie functions). Great fun band.
