Gary and Shenanigans
In 1980 Gary received an inspiration that Shenanigans was to be the name for a band he was forming with his music teaching colleagues
Christoph and Audrey.
Over the next 40 years many musicians and teachers contributed to the group, which became quite well known at a grass roots level. The 10 CD titles also became widely used in schools and preschools in Australasia, America and Europe. Shenanigans live performances are temporarily in hibernation due to Covid 19 crisis but we are confident we will rise again and continue to provide live and recorded music for educational and celebratory situations.
Gary remains the creative director of the group and manages the administration. He generally acts as the band leader at performances, and spends time researching and expanding the groups repertoire. He is a dancer, musician and writer of songs, mainly children’s items.
With a view to passing on the rich heritage of Shenanigans, Gary has begun nurturing ‘new’ young and talented musicians. The group aims to perform for motivated groups including churches, who seek to raise community spirit.
