Greg Aspeling is a consummate Swing Singer and entertainer with a lifelong dedication to Big Band Swing music. He grew up in the sixties in a large extended family of his dad’s eight brothers and sisters, who loved their swing music and gathered around the piano every Friday night to sing their hearts out. The love for swing was instilled in him from those early days, so much so, that he always harboured a dream of being a performer like Sinatra.
His dream wasn’t realised until much, much later, when in 2010, after dabbling on the fringes of music for a couple of years, he was asked to join a local big band, Swing Force Big Band, in his hometown on the Gold Coast. Greg went on to produce and perform in many shows with the band – The Michael Bublé Show. The Bobby Darin Show – Mack The Knife. A Tribute To Paul Anka – My Way, the singer/songwriter who wrote the English lyrics for the song most associated with Sinatra. The Kings Of Swing Show which showcased the three artist plus Sinatra.
At the end of 2016 Greg decided to step away from the big band and go solo. In mid-2017 he was approached to join the Rat Bunch Show. The Rat Cat Show gives Greg his other wish – performing as Sammy Davis Jr.
Sebastiaan Scholtens: Born in The Netherlands, (hence the double ‘aa’ in his name), Sebastiaan moved to Australia in 2002. At a very early age, he started to sing and act. Coming from a very musical family, his grandmother being a professional opera singer and the various members of his family playing anything from guitar to trumpet, he has performing in his blood.
Sebastiaan, or Seb as he has been appropriately renamed here in Oz, has a playful style of performing, enjoying the interaction with his audience.
Having worked with a variety of great artists, Sebastiaan is a well-respected and versatile vocalist.
Enjoying a broad selection of musical tastes, his voice is reminiscent of a mixture of Roy, Dean and Elvis, and it is this style that best resonates with his voice. Equally comfortable singing Rockabilly, Rock and Roll, Ballads and Big Band Swing a good night for all is guaranteed.
