Solos and Duos:

Jeff Fallon

In a career that spans over 20yrs, "ACE  & Mo AWARD WINNER" FALLON has earned the respect of an industry. With International Corporate performances in the likes of Vienna's Hof burg Palace, the Rome Hilton or our own Sydney Opera House, FALLON has been there and "blown them away!!!” After more than 5000 shows FALLON has trained his voice to do things others only dream about. "My passion has always been to give a song the same emotion and raw energy as the original, or more if that was possible". FALLON said. This explains his amazing ability to imitate virtually any singer. Tom Jones, Elvis, John Farnham, Meatloaf, Louis Armstrong even today’s a star like Jimmy Barnes, Rob Thomas or Bono etc. This natural talent has enabled FALLON to crossover into many genres, making a name for himself in Cabaret, Tribute Shows, Solo, Duo and straight out Rock Bands.Filling large venues is no problem for FALLON, with sold-out shows in the big International rooms like Panthers Evan Theatre, Rooty Hill RSL, Blacktown Workers, Hornsby RSL to name a few. Versatility is the name of the game in any business and Fallon has it in "SPADES".
Jesse is a guitarist/vocalist of exceptional talent. He can work just acoustic guitar and vocal, with backing tracks or a mix of both to suit all types of venues and functions. As he has a wealth of experience in major shows, bands and solo/duo engagements he can “wow” any audience. Material ranges from classic Michael Buble and Tom Jones favourites to the pop hits of today so all musical tastes are catered for with a class that put him in the top echelon of Australian solo performers. His regular clientele include most of NSW major clubs, hotels and function houses so his available booking dates are always limited. Jesse is one of Australia’s hardest working solo artists. This alone is a testament to his quality as a performer. He is a must for any venue entertainment roster.
