GRAND WAZOO : 25 YEARS in 2006

GRAND WAZOO — Australia’s Legendary Kings of Soul is a unique 14-15 piece outfit, which passionately pays homage to the great Afro-American Soul and Rhythm & Blues Legends of the late 50s, 60s, 70s and their music, along with the iconic bands of the period, such as Tower of Power & Blood Sweat & Tears, with an occasional Band original thrown in to the mix.

Australia’s Ambassador of Soul, JOHN MONTESANTE, a renowned Musician and Arranger, founded Grand Wazoo in 1981 and the outfit has performed continuously since, proving that quality endures. Montesante’s talent as a world-respected Arranger has been a key factor in Grand Wazoo’s musical excellence and longevity. All 300+ tunes performed by the band have been especially orchestrated by him.

GRAND WAZOO plays Montesante’s vibrant orchestrations of the great R & B and Soul classics, and the band is acknowledged as a ‘Soul Institution’ ; the only one of its ilk within Australia. Grand Wazoo has backed and supported many International and local artists, and fostered talents that have become ‘names’ within the Australian Industry. Some of these are: Kate Ceberano’s 1st engagement with a Soul band, Marcia Hines, Venetta Fields, Max Merritt, Joe Camilleri, Renee Geyer, Normie Rowe, Jeff Duff, Jackie Love & others... Sam & Dave (USA), Wilson Pickett Band (USA), Delilah (USA) Hollywood Brown-Platters (USA) & supported Hot Chocolate (USA).
