about us

DSCN1627 2

Grumpy Old Men is a group of very experienced musicians, based in South East Queensland Australia, who mainly play in Brisbane and Queensland regional towns.

Formed in 2006, we have a flexible lineup of between 5 or 6 musicians, all with about 25+ years each experience.

We play music from the 1970s and 1980s and can provide either a full electric rock show or a more downscaled semi-acoustic show depending on the requirements of the venue.

  • We have an extensive PA system and light show.
  • We are available for both public and private events.
  • We enjoy what we do and music provides an outlet away from our often stressful professional jobs.

We use guitars, amps, drums – nothing artificial – and make music that really rocks, that you can dance to, that you can sing all the words to.

Grumpy Old Men play at well known Brisbane and Queensland hot spots, and are a regular act at the beautiful Canungra Hotel on the Gold Coast Hinterland.
We have featured at the Beaudesert Hotel, The Aratula Hotel, Simons Tavern at Boonah, The Royal George at Rosewood, and the Jubilee Hotel at Fortitude Valley, and many other well known music venues in Queensland.

The band's repertoire includes songs from great Australian bands of the 70s and 80s, such as Australian Crawl, Mondo Rock, AC/DC, INXS and The Angels, as well as from world renowne rock acts including the Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Bad Company, Lynard Skynard, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Joe Cocker.

Grumpy Old Men are available for Corporate Functions, Christmas Parties, Fishing Club Celebrations, Weddings, Divorces, Parties, 21sts, 30ths, 40ths, 50ths, 60ths, or Wakes. Assuming it's not a bill, we would in fact play at the opening on an envelope!
We can tailor our song list to suit your event, as long as the songs have no more than 3 chords or words.
