Frank Breen (Lead Guitar & MD):
Frank has been playing guitar for over twenty years and has played in various bands invarious genres over the years including New Orleans style funk, big band jazz, pop, rock and over 10 years playing in Melbourne blues band ‘Black & Blue‘. Frank also plays bass guitar, lap steel guitar & even dabbles in some banjo playing.
Despite being a big fan of the Disco and 80s era Bee Gees, Frank was only vaguely aware of their extended legacy from the early 60s through to the start of the 21st Century and their song writing for many other artists but is now an even bigger fan and is looking forward to adding more Bee Gees songs to the ‘Night Fever – BeeGees Revival’ repertoire.
Tony Mason (Rhythm Guitar):
Music and playing guitar has always been in Tony’s life. He can’t remember a time where he hasn’t been involved in it in some way or another; from school bands to garage bands to party bands and to his kids’ bands.
While he doesn’t call himself a muso, Tony loves performing and being part of musical outfits in some way or another. As a guitar player he’s always been drawn to the Blues masters who have created and built the foundation for much of the music we’ve enjoyed, and like these masters, the BeeGees have been a huge part of adding to that foundation.
Tony is now having a great time playing their contributions. And when he’s not strumming BeeGees songs he’s indulging in some traditional blues with a little blues outfit called ‘Crafty Anne‘.
Peter Rufus (Bass Guitar):
Peter has been playing Bass for 15 years. He commenced on rudimentary bass in his early 20’s (with no prior music theory or experience on guitar) to assist a young post punk / ska band & then stopped playing to start a family. He considers himself a passionate bass guitarist. 9 years on the live circuit starting out with Blues, Rock, Pop & filling in for his sons bands on originals and covers. Have been fortunate to play in more than ten bands over the 9 yrs. Also involved with Melbourne originals Ska band “No Nonsense” from the 80’s.
Love the song compositions and sing-a-long harmonies of the BeeGees and relish in the bass driven funk arrangements of their Mythology.
Jack Setton (Percussion):
Jack has been playing drums since being captivated by The Beatles in the mid 1960s.
Since then, he has played in bands covering many musical styles including rock, jazz, R and B, and folk. He has performed in concerts, musical theatre productions and many corporate and private functions.
He has a broad and diverse musical taste and when not cycling or sailing, spends much of his time as a sound engineer and music producer, working with other musicians and song writers at his recording studio, Mad Cat Sound (www.madcatsound.com.au).
He is excited to be part of ‘Night Fever – BeeGees Revival’ and to recreate the wonderful songs of the BeeGees for the public to remember and enjoy.
Tom Di Pasquale (keys/synth):
Tom’s passion and love for music has been an integral part of his life from a very early age. He has long enjoyed playing keyboard instruments, covering an eclectic range of musical styles including light classical, R&B (60-70’s), rock/pop (50’s through to today’s), reggae and funk.
His performance experience spans over 30 years, having played keys in many 80/90’s pub rock bands, corporate/function/show bands, as well as extending his repertoire with ethnic styles and folk bands as well.
As the newest addition to Australia’s leading live BeeGees Tribute Show ‘Night Fever – BeeGees Revival’, Tom takes on the responsibility for all string/brass/synth parts. Tom’s love of music synthesis, catchy melody lines and full orchestrations (a Gibb Brothers’ specialty!), puts him in a strong position to complement the existing comprehensive sound with added richness and sensitivity.
