LIVE and IN PERSON
I’m involved in a lot of different acts – solo, duo, trio, a couple of cover bands, a couple of tribute-type things, some original projects.
4/5/6-piece pub/club/corporate show band
Matt Bradshaw & G-FORCE is a band with a vast repertoire and a keen sense of humour – this means that the band can relate to, and engage with, an audience of any type or demographic. This means also that are perfectly suited to, and at home in, any entertainment environment for which they are booked, be it a pub, a corporate event, or a wedding. Every residency this band has ever had has lasted for years, literally YEARS – be it at Crown Casino (Steakout before its closure, and now Groove on Level One), or any number of pubs and chains around Melbourne, including the well-known Bridie O’Reilly’s and The Elephant & Wheelbarrow chains. That an act can remain – and remain relevant – in the same venue week in week out for such extended periods of time is a testament to the band members’ abilities as musicians, entertainers and friends.
Ugh, not this guy again. :-)
Every Song’s a Winner Baby
The 1Hit1ders concept is simple… every song we perform is a smash hit.
And while the artist’s name has often long been forgotten, their One Hit Wonder still remains.
It’s a great time guaranteed, full of your dance-floor fillers and pub choir sing-along favourites.
It’s the 80s… Acoustic
Available as a solo or duo act, this is the 80’s re-imagined as acoustic, cool and contemporary.
Perfect for an over-28’s function, the beginning of a corporate function for a never-before-seen “point-of-difference”. It’s electro-pop on acoustic guitars with sublime vocals to match.
Duran Duran, Cyndi Lauper, Nik Kershaw, Spandau Ballet, the Eurythmics… all the stars come out to play – in brand new clothes.
4-piece classic & contemporary rock/pop
From covers of classic rock bands like Free, Dire Straits and The Eagles, to contemporary classic tracks like Wonderwall, the boys in BANG! will get you moving from the bar to the dance floor (ad infinitum).
Australia’s Premier Acoustic KISS Tribute
Matt Bradshaw, Rhys Lett and Ràv Thomas come together in Australia’s ONLY Acoustic KISS Tribute. Unplugged. Unmasked. Unexpected.
With songs like Sure Know Something, Hard Luck Woman and Shout It Out Loud performed acoustically, these guys are sure to have you Rocking and Rolling All Nite!
All 80’s corporate event & club/pub band
What more is there to say…? As a music genre, the 80s is just as ubiquitous and all-pervasive as ever it was.
You want The Human League? CHECK. What about Cyndi Lauper. YOU BET. Prince? I SHOULD SAY SO.
Check out The Eighties Strikes Back.
It’s kinda like it never went away.
The (90s) music is out there
We’ve all heard it said that the 90s is the new 80s. No? Well, you should get out more.
If you want to get your groove back in the heart with Dee-Lite and you like your boys to be the Backstreet kind, you’ve come to the right house.
Two Guitars, Two Voices, Too Good!
From Abba to ZZ Top, Arctic Monkeys to Zebrahead, the sixties to the ‘teens, and all Letters, Animals and Decades in-between, TWO RING CIRCUS is here to get your weekend (or your week!) off to a rip-roaring acoustic start.
Melbourne’s Favourite Girl/Boy Duo
One of Melbourne’s most dynamic duos, SarahT & MattyB have been performing together in duos and bands for almost twenty years.
With an expansive repertoire spanning old & new, pop & R’n’B and literally everything in-between, these two know how to read the crowd and tailor the set on the fly to suit. Their energy and sound is unmistakable and unparalleled… you won’t be disappointed.
