Kickstart are one of Brisbane’s most accomplished and enduring cover bands. Playing continuously since 2007, we have played in the majority of south-east Queensland’s premier venues and clubs as well as many corporate and private functions. Giving the audience a great night of fun, dancing and singing along is always our aim and our repertoire is geared around this .. so it’s full of classic rock and classic hits from the 70s through to 90s with a few iconic numbers from the 60s, as well 00s and today. We guarantee you’ll know every song! We’d love to hear from you if you’re planning live entertainment for your next event.



Leigh's Pub or Club Gig in BONGAREE, Dec 2021

A great band who played a great range of hits! Were perfect for our venue . Would thoroughly recommend Kickstart to anyone looking for a professional set up who deliver the goods!

Ian's Birthday Party in Greenbank, May 2021

Kick Start were an awesome band especially in the lousy weather that went down on the night. Very proffessional and courteous, on time and a really good sound. I just wish that the weather would have been better for everyone concerned but that is not the bands fault as I was surprised that they persevered

More Info

Sore feet and a hoarse voice from dancing and singing the night away!! Seriously, you can expect a totally professional performance from a band of seasoned musos who have been entertaining people for longer than we can remember. To give you confidence that we know our stuff and can give you a great night, some of our highlights have been playing the Piazza twice for Riverfire, playing Suncorp Stadium for Bronco’s 21st Anniversary Game, being flown to Port Douglas for a private wedding, playing the Stockman’s Bar on the famous first Friday night of the Ekka for 3 years running, playing Twin Towns Showroom supporting the Fawlty Towers Show, regular at Neurum Creek Bush Retreat for 5 years running, CEQ Charity Race Day at Doomben for 2 years running, BCEC and Gold Coast Convention Centre for numerous corporate functions, and being re-booked 27 times to play at The Grand Hotel, Labrador .... and there are many more. We use only the best sound equipment and have our own sound engineer to ensure that the mix and sound levels are just right for the crowd.

CEQ Queensland ...
"On behalf of the Staff, Babies, Children & Young Adults with disabilities at Conductive Education Queensland 'CEQ' I would like to sincerely thank Kickstart for the awesome job they did at the CEQ Charity Race Day 2019. Kickstart has been my go-to for entertainment for Charity Events for a number of years. They not only perform the songs that everyone knows and loves, they become part of the crowd and create a party atmosphere. From set up to pack up they seamlessly get the job done very professionally and nothing is ever too much trouble, they’ve picked up and run with my special requests, from interactive Fashions on the field to Group Karaoke/Pub Choir. I am sincerely grateful to all the band members for what they bring to the events they perform at." - Jody Florance, CEQ Charity Race Day, Doomben 2019

About Booking

We strongly recommend that all communication with Kickstart be kept within CrowdPleaser's secure quoting and booking platform. We can only guarantee deposits paid through the CrowdPleaser website. You should also make sure their quote includes their cancellation and payment terms.

Ideally we require a performance area that is under cover and approximately 3m x 3m but we can accommodate smaller spaces if necessary. Easy access to a reliable power source is essential. Otherwise, we are totally self-sufficient and have our own PA and stage lights. In order to ensure we are ready to go by your show time, we ideally require access to the venue 1.5 to 2 hours beforehand to load in, set up and do our sound check.
