More Info


Performer profile “Groove Brother”/ “Godfather of Groove” (aka Mel Tickle) is a very experienced performer. He has performed over many years with a variety of bands and musical styles in South Australia – including a couple of local TV spots. Whilst interstate on an employment secondment he was part of a band that was major placegetter in a Battle of the Bands. He offers overseas (USA) performance experiences in Los Angeles, Memphis and Minneapolis. Back on the local front he has performed in local theatre productions. He developed and refined (to award winning level) his public speaking skills via Rostrum. More recently Mel has applied those skills – he presents a weekly radio program on 88.7 Adelaide’s Coast FM as well as regular presentation of Jazz programs on Adelaide’s Fine Music station 99.9fm 5MBS. “Soul Sister” – Belinda Milliken – is an extremely polished performer. She has a magnificent voice that all who hear her come to appreciate very quickly! Her natural ability has been refined and embellished by the best vocal tutors available – and it shows. Experience-wise, Belinda has performed locally in many formats - solo/duet and band – and coupled with that has had formative on-stage roles in local theatre. Belinda has a beautifully engaging and friendly personality that connects so readily and easily with the audience – on and off the stage. Belinda – really has the soul of the great performer she is. “Groove Brother”/ “Mr Smooth – Lewis G (aka Lewis Murray) Lewis brings a further complimentary layer of performance experience, vocal strength and success to the band. He too has performed over many years in local musical units, but also has a touch of the international with a performance in Los Angeles. On stage appearances in local theatre also a feature in Lewis’s experience base. An ultra-sophisticated look and style is Lewis’s “brand” within the band (some ladies have a second take!). His subtle funky guitar rhythms provide the solid underpinning of the GB&SS sound – and when it comes to party time he is in the front row of delivery – look out girls!

These are the categories of entertainment or other services offered by Groove Brothers and Soul Sister.


"Groove Brothers and Soul Sister" are a trio. Ideally we required an area of approx. 6 meters wide by 3 meters deep for our equipment and performance area. We require access to a safe 240v domestic power supply. Also needed is a small secure area (about the size of a disabled access toilet) where the band can change into and out of show clothes. If performing outdoors then power safety and suitable and safe weather protection for the band is a very important requirement. If the venue has steps or is on the first floor or above and does have lift access - an extra charge may apply. If paid parking is required for the band's car and equipment van - then that cost is the client's responsibility.


We have a song list of over 800 titles which we constantly keep fresh by adding suitable material. Special song requests are invited both at booking time or at the event. The chances of a request being fulfilled is always pretty good, but they even better if we have a couple of weeks notice!
