Kickstart Duo

 Kickstart Duo are Chris and Hugh from one of Brisbane’s most popular cover bands, Kickstart. Just like Kickstart, the band, we play a great mixture of well-delivered rock classics from the 60s to the present including a sprinkling of some well-loved Aussie classics. As individuals and together we have many years of playing and performance experience and play regularly with the full Kickstart band in the main popular venues and at many private and corporate functions throughout south-east Queensland.

We have tailored our repertoire to include laid back numbers as well as some upbeat numbers to dance to for mid-week and low key events. However we can rock it up for a Friday or Saturday night as well! Whilst we play the standards that people love to hear, we also play some popular numbers that don’t often get played as well as a cross-section of genres so there is something for everyone!
