Gary Johns is one of Sydney’s most versatile, charismatic and experienced performers. He can do any style from cool jazz and soul for dinner and sophisticated events through to nonstop dance parties, that keep everyone on the dance floor from the first song to the last song.

Gary is a very experienced entertainer and boasts one of the biggest and most diverse song-lists in Sydney and is always happy to take requests and interact with crowds to create a really fun atmosphere!

That’s just the surface though, Gary has studied opera and jazz at the University of New South Wales. He holds 2 degrees in music and has travelled the world from NYC to London playing and getting master classes from the world no. 1’s!

So he’s no one trick pony one man band, he plays an average of 3 nights every week in the best venues playing as a solo, duo, trio, as well as a 4 and 5 piece band. His band regularly comprises of the best musicians available so it’s always a thrill to see who’s going to be in the lineup!

He’s been playing and singing professionally since he was 15 and has really got a relaxed rapport with any audience as a result of experience. Aside from his work as a crowd please in the covers scene Gary’s original works have been showcased on national radio as well as on high rating national TV shows and various films.

As well as performing Gary also operates Sydney Funk Collective one of Sydney’s best party bands who regularly perform at functions for companies including Coca Cola, Nine Network and Bupa as well as celebrity weddings at the Opera House, etc.

Why not let Gary and some of his obscenely well-presented and talented colleagues make your next event a success to be talked about?




We just wanted to say a massive thanks to Gary Johns for performing at our wedding. It was so much fun on the dance floor – even nanna made it up there. We’d recommend you guys to anyone who wanted to make sure their wedding was one to be remembered by all. You were so easy to deal with before and during the night and it really took the stress out of the whole event.

Again thanks – you guys rock. – Steve and Kim

Gary Johns was the entertainment at our recent Gala Award Event. The band were absolute professionals and a pleasure to deal with, while also delivering fantastic entertainment for our guests throughout the night.

I would not hesitate in recommending them for your next event whether it’s a milestone birthday or a corporate event, they will deliver.

Gary Johns was fantastic. They arrived, set-up, started and playedfabulous music. They fit in with the proceedings of the party, and played my iPod in the breaks. I couldn’t have asked for a better band.

Thanks. Blair

I recently saw Gary Johns perform at the Orient Hotel and was super impressed with his performance. I then booked him and the band for our corporate party. Wow was all everyone could say. These guys are the real deal, Michael Buble to a tee then they had us up dancing to some classic rock before we even finished our final presentation. I got myself some kudos with my colleagues as the best party organizer ever!!!
