Past Tense

We are a Sydney based Retro Covers band playing some of the best music of the Retro era, when music was identifiable & the lyrics made sense. Growing up in Australia listening to these iconic songs helped shape the best years of our lives

Past Tense has an extensive songlist spanning the decades but the 80's are our thing so think 80's and beyond! We having been playing at pubs, clubs, parties etc all over Sydney for many years & always get a really good crowd & put on a VERY high energy, fun show that has people up dancing usually a few songs into the first set & then the dance floor is always full until the end of the night! We use crazy hats, blow up guitars, feather boas etc etc!!- or we can tone it down too - whatever you require!
Whenever we do a gig the venue & punters ALWAYS want us to come back & play again soon!! We have our own PA & provide posters for upcoming gigs if you need them.
Past Tense performs all the great hits & anthems with talented musicians: Anne Ker lead vocals/keyboard,
Sam Bounader lead guitar/vocals/keyboard,
Pablo Chico bass/ vocals, George Tassios drums/percussion.
Come & dance your socks off to our groovey tunes & Past Tense will give you a night out which you will remember LONG into the future!
