Looking for a high-energy versatile band to play at your next private or corporate event??
Then look no further than “McKenzie”!!
McKenzie are one of the youngest bands playing at leading venues, weddings, festivals and corporate events around Australia, and with good reason. The Gold Coast based 4 piece band perform songs from the 50’s to today, backed with their high energy interaction and stage presence (sometimes with a little McKenzie twist). McKenzie’s key focus is to keep the crowd involved and to put on a great show no matter what the occasion.
There aren’t many venues or shows McKenzie haven’t had partying the night away. From top venues along the East Coast like Surfers Paradise Beer Garden, Byron Bay Beach Hotel, Broadbeach Tavern ,Treasury Casino Brisbane, The Hoey Moey, Cairns Reef Casino and The Cooly Hotel to South Australian Wine Festivals. McKenzie have also mixed it with world renowned shows like “Rock the Boat Cruise” supporting bandslike “Foreigner”, “The Romantics”, “Ross Wilson”, “Shannon Noll” and “Reece Maston”just to name a few. Recently Mckenzie were invited back onto the 10 year anniversary criuse with Suzi Quatroas the headline act.
McKenzie has also supported shows for James Reynein the red centre at Alice Springs and a massive Australia Day gig with Daryl Braithwaite at Kingscliff in NSW.
McKenzie can also be used as a duo, trio, 4 piece or 5 piece to suit any function and more recently an 8 piece big band. With their own PA and lighting rig playing in any venue is all too easy.
