|In 2007, a chance phone call from Jimmy to Scotty led to a couple of good Solo
Keyboard / Piano players meeting up to form a one off Duelling Piano Show for
the Tamworth Country Music Festival. What was supposed to be a week long
contract has turned into bigger and better opportunities for both the boys.
They have appeared over several years at the Tamworth Country Music Festival as
well as numerous performances at The Gympie Muster Festival in QLD. They are
an ideal choice of entertainment for Corporate Events and Parties, as well as the Office
Xmas Party or perhaps even the local end of year sporting presentation night.
They have performed on numerous Cruise Ships and countless gigs in the Clubs and
Hotels around Australia
Both Jimmy and Scotty were already well established solo performers, having both played
on stages all over the world for the previous 25 years or so. It was when they first met, that
they realized they had matching heads,and they knew that this would somehow be a good
look on stage.
The 'Big Shots Duelling Piano Show' can really make a 40th, 50th or 60th Birthday party
special and unique. They can handle all the musical requirements of a Wedding Reception,
from the easy going background music when the guests arrive, right up to the Bridal Waltzes
and the subsequent free for all dancing part of the late evening. With the two of them always
present, they have also been known to handle the responsibilities of the Wedding MC as well.
When you mention Dueling Pianos, a lot of people think of a somewhat subdued style of music,
but to the contrary, the Big Shots Duelling Piano Show is anything but ! Jimmy and Scotty have a
natural interaction with each other which is obvious from an audiences perspective and they really
do know how to judge their audience's age group and always come up with an appropriate
repertoire for the night.
Their songlist is nothing short of impressive and really do cover songs from a wide list of well
known acts. They add their own personalities and interactions with the audience, coupled with
a state of the art PA Sound system that they take everywhere. The grand pianos that they use
were designed by jimmy & Scotty and only add to the impressive stage presence.

|There is no denying that after more than forty years in the music industry,
John Williamson is truly an Australian icon. John released his new album
“A Hell of Career” in July 2013 and is now touring Australia performing
his biggest hits.
It is hard to describe John Williamson and his music without thinking that
you have left something out or underrated his contribution and achievements.
How do you sum up an artist who has captured a country in song and had
such a successful career in one of the most cutthroat industries around?
It's an almost impossible task.
Very few artists have experienced and earned the longevity of such a career
as John Williamson. It's quite rare but when you review his albums and songs
you can see why.
After 43 years in the music industry, touring continuously for that period,
John's career is stronger than ever and he is still writing and recording new songs.
But during this time, he has shunned celebrity and resisted offers to take his music
to the international stage, preferring to stay true to his passion: Australia.
An ARIA Hall of Fame member, John Williamson has won 3 ARIA Awards, 4 APRA
Awards, 8 TSA Awards, 8 MO Awards, 24 Golden Guitar Awards and sold more than
4 million albums in Australia earning numerous GOLD and PLATINUM Records. On
Australia Day 1992, Williamson was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM)
"for service to Australian country music and in stimulating awareness of conservation issues".
John is not only an artist of unbelievable musical poetry but also a man of integrity. He
has always stood firm to his own beliefs and his courage of his conviction regardless
of the outcome and without regrets. He is truly proud of his country and stands and
sings tall with each note.
John Williamson is without question, an Australian icon. His voice and sound are as
recognisable and important to Australia as the Southern Cross is to the flag. He's performed
at some of Australia's most historic and nation stopping events, and to battlers across this
vast country. His songs and music are simply for everyone.
Perfect... any season, any reason!
