Description

Authentic and entertaining Black Soul Music experience in Australia—featuring the great Afro-American hits & artists from late 1950s,1960s and 1970s, iconic R & B of that era, with a rare GW Band Original added to the mix.

The Band was founded in 1981 by Jazz Musician & Arranger, John Montesante - who still leads the Band today. GRAND WAZOO offers musical excellence, longevity, experience and entertainment value second to none; and is widely revered as a "Soul Institution". The Band's usual offering is a Soul Extravaganza of up to 2 x 1 hour sets, or 3 x 40 min sets — with some flexibility for special events, functions, festivals and media. Grand WaZoo has backed and supported international and local well-known artists, and has fostered talents that have become names within the Australian industry. Just a sample has included Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett Band, Venetta Fields, Jeff Duff, Marcia Hines, Kate Ceberano, Bob Valentine, Hollywood Brown, Hot Chocolate, Lisa Edwards, Renee Geyer, Normie Rowe, Jackie Love, Max Merritt and many others.

Grand Wazoo has recorded 4 albums : Reverend Blues (1985),  Band of 1000 Dances (1998), Tribute to Alvie Lee Johns Jnr (2005), Soul Monster (2007), and plans another in 2010.

The Band has also performed “live”  in the media - including regular appearances on Hey Hey Its Saturday, GMA (Good Morning Australia), Midday Show, Denise, The Don Lane Show, The Footy Show, and also  on ABC Radio & numerous AM & FM radio outlets. 

GRAND WAZOO  is available for Prestige Tours & Corporate Events interstate, as well as International Gigs and Festivals.
