The first Blue Commotion gig in February 2012 was a culmination of a ten-year musical partnership between Zoe Schwarz and guitarist Rob Koral. Through their intense musical journey and compatible desire, they developed a perfect collaboration and empathy, which, when analysed, comes from two completely different starting points. Because of this melting pot of musical diversity, there is a depth and uniqueness to the band's music which is hard to pigeon-hole and categorise. Into the mix comes the sheer virtuosity of each of the band members who are allowed the freedom to express their musical authority, and stamp their own personal magic to the song writing of Zoe and Rob. A testament to this chemistry is the sheer volume of music coming out of the band, and 'Exposed' will be Blue Commotion's third album in two years. Zoe's unique, yearning vocal style is blended with Rob's ability to come up with catchy vibrant riffs and musical arran...

Our wedding reception was quite simply the best ever, and the reason for that was you guys. People have been coming up to us to tell us how amazing you were and even asking where we found you! We had one guy, a singer himself, tell us you did the best Bon Jovi cover he'd ever heard! The sight of everyone dancing and enjoying themselves will never leave us. Thanks so very much.
If you think you know about partying, you don't - until you've seen That Eighties Band rock the place! They never stopped, even getting a few minutes for a quick drink was tricky because the music these guys were playing was so awesomely infectious!! Travis himself is a fabulous person to work with, heaps of fun and really easy to get along with! Nobody needs to hire a DJ for a real party if they have That Eighties Band available to bring the house down!! There's honestly no other band I've ever seen who can match them for bringing a totally rocking party to the house!!!
Hired the band for our School Burns Night and was blown away by their professionalism and performance! They had all our staff on their feet to dance the night away. Lovely friendly guys, would not hesitate to book them again! Cannot recommend them highly enough!
