Matt Bradshaw and Paul Shirley have been friends and band colleagues for over ten years and it shows in every facet of their performance. The energy they create onstage as “just an acoustic duo” has to be seen to be believed. They each have an almost innate ability to read an audience and tailor the perfect atmosphere for a memorable performance, every time.

Musical prowess and manic humour combine to make this act one of Melbourne’s most sought-after and long-lived.

Dom Italiano joins Matt Bradshaw in this acoustic act that has performed in Melbourne’s best-known and most-revered clubs, pubs and venues. They perform the best classic pop and Top40 in an acoustic style with a repertoire comprising well into the hundreds of songs.

Also, Two Ring Circus performs as a Crowded House Tribute Show, most recently for a week-long season at the iconic Butterfly Club here in South Melbourne.

From his article: “Wonderfully more than a tribute show”, Adam Tonking wrote: “This was clearly a well-honed act that flowed beautifully between heartfelt tribute and just damn entertaining. Bradshaw and Italiano play easily off each other, and off the audience, without any pretension or self-consciousness. Their skills as musicians are impeccable, their voices heart-melting, their guitar-playing breath-taking.”
