The Man Behind The Rhythm... Brad Buckley
Brad has been performing in the Queensland music scene since the early
90s in various formats. His career has come full circle since then having
progressed from solo performances, to his six year stint as front man of the
highly successful Brisbane covers act “ Piston Broke ”then on
to another six year run in the very popular duo “ 2 Not Out ” followed by
the next chapter with duo act“ TOO EZY ”.
The key is a broad knowledge of all
genres so as to appeal to a wide
cross range of audience in varying styles.
From a laid back and extremely easy listening bistro style to a
more up-tempo after work public bar audience, Brad can cover it for you.
Although the performance is in an unplugged acoustic style, as this is the
style that this performer prefers, this does not detract from the
entertainment aspect of the show. Requests are always considered and Brad
likes to make his audience feel welcome with his personable and easily
approachable style. Brad took on all of this experience from his band days and past
duo's, incorporating it into an extremely versatile solo act before teaming up with
Sydney descendant & Gold Coast rocker, Debi Martin.
Debi's natural flair for entertaining and infectious personality combined with powerfully driven vocals will leave the audience wondering what wow factor she will come up with next. Just try to take your eyes off her as she transports you from The Divinyls to the Angels and Pink to Baby Animals.
“DISTRACTION” is a Rock Covers Duo which combines the talents of two compelling
vocalists in Debi Martin and Brad Buckley. Throw in Brad’s natural flair for creating a
solid rhythm on his guitar to back the pair and an awesome mix of mainstream
Rock and Popular Covers from the 70s to now and the result is something that has
audiences hanging out to see which song comes next. Both artists have spent years
honing their craft in various acts across Queensland and New South Wales.
This experience brings any venue or function a polished and versatile show
capable of moulding and adapting itself to the individual demands of each performance.
Whether it be a dinner function, partied up pub rock vibe or a blend of both the huge variety of music covered by
this entertaining duo ensures that the needs of the event are met.
