The Wheelie Bin Orchestra


The Wheelie Bin Orchestra is a dynamic four-piece percussion ensemble that makes their music on wheelie bins. The concept was born out of a skit for the annual Old Nick Company's "Uni Revue" in 2003 which involved twenty players on stage. The present line-up has evolved the original concept to include an audience participation segment along the lines of ABC-TV's "Spicks and Specks".

The ensemble draws their material from the broad spectrum of percussion music including Latin American, African, US Drum Line, Irish/Celtic, and Rock, all infused with good humour that will have you tapping along.

The Wheelie Bin Orchestra members are Jeremy Sibson, Robert Rule, Ben Smart, and Andrew Colrain. All come from a strong background in percussion and theatre with and all are professional musicians.

The ensemble have played numerous festivals and corporate functions both locally and interstate.
