island entertainment presents
Garry, on guitar and backing vocals, and Aly, on vocals and hand percussion, make up Silver Zephyr, a professional Hobart-based duo. - Having performed since 2010 in and around Melbourne, the mainland and Hobart they have a passion and great competence for engaging every audience, from ambient background music to tunes that get your feet moving on the dancefloor. - Their sincere approach to each performance and dedication to entertain is a culmination of years of combined experience and a fine-tuning of their craft.
Garry has spent over 35 years learning, perfecting and performing the six string in solo guitar shows, various bands and duo ensembles.- He started playing the acoustic at age 14, almost immediately after he fell in love with the electric guitar.- While Aly has always had a natural desire for the old time "musicals", she solidified what she enjoyed with professional vocal tuition as well as studying the genres of soul, jazz and blues. - - Both musicians have also spent the last 6 years in a working rock covers band.
Silver Zephyr's varied song list includes covers of the all-time classic hits from modern artists like Robbie Williams and the late Amy Winehouse, to the rock greats of Queen, The Eagles, Elvis and The Beatles, to the classics of Cold Chisel, Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Wonder to name a few.
Playing residencies, at corporate functions, as well as weddings and birthdays, Silver Zephyr are available to perform at your venue, function, special celebration or event.- - The Hobart-based venues they appear at include Cooleys Hotel, Longley International Hotel, the Elwick Hotel and A Wine bar in Bellerive, and they also featured in the 2019 Derwent Valley Autumn Festival. - Their most memorable performances were on the iconic Ghan and Indian Pacific rail journeys across Australia.
In addition to providing a full sound and lighting system down to an intimate set-up suiting all of your needs, Silver Zephyr will make you and your guests feel like part of the show.
