Good morning John. Just wanted to send you a little message to say thank you. Your band was fabulous. Everyone had the best time sore heads next day. Have to say even worse today no voice left but well worth it. My husband was very impressed. We will spread the word around how great you guys are please thank the rest of the band for me. Cheers



We've been playing Melbourne pubs since we formed this current line-up back in Jan 2010. Recent gigs include, Bar 362 (on St Kilda Rd), The Vineyard in Acland St, The Swan Hotel in Richmond,the Pint on Punt, The Duke of Edinburgh in Sydney Road, The Club Hotel in Bairnsdale, The Alpine in Bright and Beaches Bar in Mornington to name just a few.
We've also played many private functions including weddings, engagements and birthdays, usually as a result from people who have come and seen us play at pubs.

Hi all... I had this Band for my wedding, same as you are right now trying to find the right one, well stop looking, The Other Band also known as The Q Band, would have to be one of the best cover bands I have heard, John ( band leader) was so easy to talk to, communication was great, song list was enormous great choices from 70's to today, you cant go past a female vocalist & Mahalia put on a great performance she entertained the crowd & can this lady sing ***** 5 stars.. John sent me a song list that he thought would suit what I had asked & I didn't change a thing. We had a house wedding (in the back garden) we bought in a taught line truck & the band played on the back like a stage.. fantastic.. kids danced on hay bales, adults danced & sung along all night.. ****** 50 stars to these guys they made our wedding a night everyone will talk about for a long long time... thanks John & the band xx
