Channel Surfers


The Channel Surfers are certainly unlike typical cover bands. For starters, the band mostly play American music from the late 50s and early 60s. The Channel Surfers (and many music fans) simply feel that this original era of rock and roll is as good as it gets! One hit wonders, cult favourites and obscure gems are all featured in the band’s repertoire. This is alongside songs written by the most legendary names of early American popular music (think Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash, Ricky Nelson, Bill Haley, Hank Williams etc).

With 300 bookings in 8 years, The Channel Surfers are no strangers to the smaller and bigger stages of South East Queensland. For the first half of their existence, the band were a successful all instrumental act that focused on resurrecting classic 60s surf rock (hence the Hawaiian attire and the nautically themed name of the act). The band evolved in 2019, adding vocals and a whole new repertoire of 50s rock and roll, blues and country. It goes without saying that classic surf rock still appears in the repertoire too.

As stated, The Channel Surfers are certainly not a typical pub cover band on the circuit. Proof of this can be found in multiple bookings at some of the biggest festivals in South East Queensland – Cooly Rocks On, Blues On Broadbeach, Brisbane Festival, Brisbane BBQ Festival, Bleach Festival, Fish Lane Festival, Bulimba Festival, Noosa Festival of Surfing and Caxton St Seafood Festival. If further proof is required, the band has also released two original albums and was selected to support the legendary Albert Lee for his two Queensland shows in 2018. Who’s Albert Lee we hear you ask? Eric Clapton called Albert Lee the greatest guitar ever.
