The Dynamic Duo - Live Music

An unbeatable energy with an onslaught of constant hits is the winning formula for local heros, The Dynamic Duo.

Perfect for : Corporate/Private/Public

Treva Scobie and Dean Fraser Young met at a Jam Night and locked in on stage instantly with similar music interests and the same high level of respect for entertainment.

Together they have formed a solid and refreshing live act which consists of their own acoustic interpretations of past and present favourites.

Their song list is forever growing, but is always consisting of many genres which keeps all walks of life engaged and satisfied. And for this reason, The Dynamic Duo has excelled at weddings, corporate events and other private functions.

Also available as -

Acoustic guitar & drum/percussion duo
Acoustic trio with acoustic guitar, bass, drum/percussion
Band (see Gung Ho)

Sound Application - Minimal space and noise

To perform is one thing, but to produce a quality sound that is enjoyable to everyone is another.
And this does not mean that volume is energy.

As professional musicians should, The Dynamic Duo have invested in high quality equipment strengthening their position in the entertainment arena as a versatile act that can perform within the needs of any sound conscious or space conscious client or venue.
With the use of in-ear monitoring and instruments direct input into a high clarity and compact PA (eliminating on stage amps and noise) with electric drums, volume is as simple as one overall slider.
For the more generous venues, a larger PA system - which still possesses the same audio brilliance - can be combined with a full back-line of onstage amps and acoustic drums.

To compliment the acts performance and audio pleasure, a first class lighting and effects package complete with smoke machines, laser lights and moving LED's can also tastefully added.

With The Dynamic Duo .... anything is possible - just ask.

"When I'm putting together a night at the Cow and need an act that will hold a crowd, I love to be able to use the Dynamic Duo. Their total professionalism means less stress for me and I know the patrons are in good hands"
