The Sutcliffes
A West Coast homage to The Beatles, they live on!

One in Victoria's most loved bands, the Sutcliffes play mostly, though not exclusively, Beatle material in a take-no-prisoners-no-holds-barred energetic fashion. Their reputation as a live act is well earned! The band says of themselves,  Shows are often so intense that band and audience need a safe word!

Band members: (from their site)

Terry Marshall - lead singer, lead bass player… not so much a frontman as a force of nature. A similar warning is issued at Sea World’s Shamu performance: The first few rows will get wet.

Shaun Wilson - Impossibly high harmonies, boom-a-chang acoustic, the Gretsch Country Gentleman his-self and a few fan fave lead vocals. The man with the hat and one of the best gear movers in the business.

Chuck Simms - Some singing, some playing on a fleet of Rickenbackers that grace stages everywhere. His humorous on stage banter and observations are often met with stunned silence or most likely a comment such as ‘Well, another evening ruined!’

Terry James - TJ is the kind of drummer everybody loves: he brings energy, musicality and joy to what he does. The Big Smooth plays it all with confidence, and his spirited ‘Wipeout’ is surpassed only by his Don Draperish good looks.
