Playing the best of the British Invasion, The Substitutes recreate that 60s excitement and rawness that often gets lost with cover bands. Listen to a Dave Davies guitar solo or a Keith Moon drum fill and know that the 60s were about experimentation and shock, not just good pop melodies. With the incredible vocals and superb guitar work of Michael Barker, a rhythm section with Pete Robinson on bass (The Strangers) supported by Peter Reed on drums (ex New Dream) plus the punk energy of Adrian Scott on guitar and keys (Air Supply), The Substitutes faithfully produce the sounds of the 60s, just like the record, but with a real spirit, dry humour and a passion that you will remember ... they are simply the best 60s band in Melbourne, bar none!
The Herberts are a band playing the best of sixties music, they could have been transported from playing a couple of streets away from the Beatles at the Cavern club or Carnaby street. Featuring one of the best frontmen in Australia, The Herberts is a 60s concept band playing all the popular dance songs from 60s Britain. They wear the uniform of the era and not only sound great but look great as well. Their appeal is widespread as they have chosen songs that were not only hits in the 60s but have been re-covered by bands in the 80s, 90s and 2000s. These guys are great to listen to, awesome to dance to and funny and entertaining for those who just like to sit back and watch.

The line-up includes best mates Dundo and Matt Powell on vocals/guitar - Matt is an amazing singer and Dundo as frontman will keep you entertained for the duration! Clocking up over 20 years playing alongside the boys also is Australian guitar legend ‘JD’ John Dallimore. Throw in another musical heavyweight Kevin Murphy; an amazing drummer and vocalist (Kev has played with everyone and his smile is infectious) plus Neil (Ozzie) Osborne on keys and sax and Brett Hapi on bass guitar.
