Meet our Performers


Rosie Conforto & Robbi Thompson

Check out a little Facebook video from the recent shows down at Docklands.

Two of Melbourne’s most renowned corporate performers from the act Superband Regular performers at major gala events for Melbourne Racing Club, Crown Palladium etc. Jason is also the resident piano man at Crown. Huge repertoire, retro & contemporary crowd favourites in a chilled & smooth piano format. Click here to watch them perform. 


William Paul

William Paula has entertained audiences and the US. Diversifying from covers in the local Melbourne music scene such as Hard Rock Cafe Melbourne and many other long-standing residencies to overseas productions including, 'Legends In Concert' in Las Vegas and showcasing his original music at the Bluebird Cafe and Commodore Grille in Nashville. Will is vocally and instrumentally rich  and smooth with dark and gritty tones like Johnny Cash and Howlin' Wolf taking the stage with Amy Winehouse in a modern retro world. 


Rhys Warden

Rhys is leading the next generation of Melbourne’s premium solo performers. With a very cool creative musical vibe, great guitar work, percussive loops and pedals and tasty vocals. There are not too many young guys out on the scene doing old school soul, through to tasty Michael Jackson covers…and a nice blend of contemporary hits and the classics. Splitting his time between fronting corporate band ‘Spin’ and performing solo acoustic, Rhys warden is certainly the ‘new kid on the block’ making big noise.


Chris Booroff

Chris Booroff has found himself playing in all sorts of different bands & ensembles over the past six years. After 4 years studying music in Southampton, he went on to play in various musical outfits and has toured the UK, Ireland and parts of Europe. Chris played lead trumpet in Southampton based touring Ska-punk band "Mash Attack," and South coast (UK) touring pop-punk band "Kids Can't Fly." He has also played lead guitar in Southampton's functions & corporate events band "Headrush," and the touring folk trio "Wax Jacket," fronted by James Chilton.

In June 2013, Chris travelled to Australia, and continued his career on the opposite end of the world. Chris established a network of musicians, venues and promoters, as he conquered the city by playing in almost every music venue in Melbourne both as a solo artist and in various bands. After 2 months of busking & performing, he formed a trio named "Isoh" and continued to perform constantly within this outfit. By the end of his time in Melbourne, he was hosting his own acoustic jam night - "The Acoustic Library" at The Ontop Bar in Ormond; and was employed to play guitar for shows in the Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Perth Fringe Festival, New Zealand Arts Festival and Slide Cabaret Festival (Sydney). Chris is now based in the Whitsundays continuing his solo career and playing Trumpet and guitar for the Reggae outfit "Sun Salute." His solo shows are unlike any other soloist - an energetic mix of acoustic guitar, trumpet, stompbox and live looping!


Tim Morrison 

Tim Morrison's been back in the spotlight since re-appearing on The Voice and becoming one of the top four finalists on Delta Goodrem's team. Before moving in a solo-music direction, Tim toured extensively out front for Melbourne rock outfit Trial Kennedy. Signing a major record deal, Tim and Trial Kennedy toured and recorded overseas supporting bands including Silverchair, Good Charlotte, The Living End and Fall Out Boy just to name a few. There are a few places Tim feels more at home than on stage, with a great groove and a captive audience.
