Squash Dolly

Squash Dolly (Pete & Jill) are the versatile duo covering the Sunshine and Fraser Coasts. Their act features both male and female vocals with backing entirely on Kurzweil keyboards. From the wedding chapel to the dance floor, from the classical (Puccini, Badalamenti), to the big bands of the ‘40s (Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman), to the classic rock of the ‘70s (The Eagles, Toto, Pink Floyd, Supertramp) right up to the present (including original numbers), Squash Dolly keeps the dance floor moving.




After wowing them in Melbourne, Squash dolly (Pete & Jill) have recently moved their act to S.E. QLD.

Squash Dolly has a full sound that for a duo can only be described as unique. Pete’s mastery of the Kurzweil keyboards combined with Jill and Pete’s multi layered vocal harmonies means that Squash Dolly produces a sound that rivals a full band. From the orchestral numbers such as Nights in White Satin to the haunting guitar of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb it is all done without downloaded commercial backing tracks.

Squash Dolly has a versatile repertoire to suit all tastes and ages ranging from the big bands of the 1940s through to classic rock right up to the present (including their own original numbers).

Squash Dolly knows what it takes to keep the audience entertained and moving on the dance floor – perfect for all functions, clubs, pubs, corporate, parties, and weddings.
