The Countdown Band

Based in SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, we are a fun cover band.

After scouring every rehearsal room in the country, a party band was formed that play predominantly cheerful/happy uplifting rock and pop music from the COUNTDOWN & MTV era.

We are not on stage just for ourselves, we are there for YOU and your audience. We understand how to deliver a quality show that entertains and engages. It’s all about great preparation, and a genuine love for what we do.

We play music that YOU instantly recognize, can sing along and dance to. Entertainment is our jam. We don’t rely on gimmicks, props, or recorded backing tracks… we just play hard with Countdown hits and connect with your audience through great song choices.

We don’t pretend to be everything to everyone, but we do promise that we are most of all FUN ! and very conscious of your audience.

Countdown your evening with the Countdown Band.

For a successful event we strongly recommend appropriate music between band sets. Momentum is very important, and regularly overlooked.

  • We supply a suitable playlist for background music between band sets.
  • Hiring a first class DJ is the best option for all additional songs beyond our band setlist.
  • You can supply your media device (phone/tablet/laptop) for essential songs you want played. eg, Bridal waltz / corporate ads etc.
