Simon Rhodes
With an extensive and diverse amount of experience playing live shows in front of thousands, down to intimate theatre or piano bar gigs, Simon's keyboard skills are second to none! Simon’s strength is diversity. From an emphasis on pure classical piano playing - to a cool 'blue-note' rhythm & blues style - to a terrific hard-rocking piano & funky Clav rhythms - to high-tech futuristic synth & string pads or just pure Hammond organ... Simon has - and can play it all!
Michael Farrugia
When it comes to the low notes, Michael has you more than covered! With 40+ years of experience playing in original and cover bands such as Xpozay, Vibe and most recently with the original group “Oh North”, Michael brings a big and powerful presence to the stage and always delivers the groove!
Peter Ivosevic
Peter’s high energy and infectious groove have kept him in high demand in the Melbourne music scene over the years, playing in numerous bands, including the original Sydney based band “Big Bang Theory” who supported “Guns n’ Roses” on their 1993 Australian tour. More recently, Peter played drums for original band “The Need”, fronted by Mark Spano (Australian Idol) and “Making Waves” Melbourne based cover band.
Paul Rose 
Paul’s love for music started at a very young age. As the son of Australia’s “Piano Man” Marty Rose, it was inevitable that Paul would be drawn into the music scene. Playing in cover bands from an early age and then professionally from the age of 21 with duo “Instant Karma”, 60’s cover band “Rainy Day Mushroom Pillow”, Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band “Blood Sugar Sex Magic” as well as a founding member of the original band “The Word” Paul has a wealth of experience on stage and an infectious passion for music and performing live.
