About Us

If you remember the 60s, or you missed out because you were too young, but you still love the sound, then the Breed is the band for you. They play a unique blend of 60s pop / rock, merseybeat, mod, R&B and power-pop and feature the talents of Wayne Crisp (Guitar/Vocals), Dan Graver (Bass/Vocals) and Kenny White (Drums).

The Breed have been recreating the sounds, fun and excitement of groups such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Monkees and The Hollies to enthusiastic audiences across the state. This entertaining and authentic group has an exciting rawness that was prevalent at live shows of the era. A night with The Breed appeals to audiences of all ages from Generation Y through to the Baby Boomers.

With a wealth of musical experience both locally and individually overseas, their energetic sound has seen them playing at various venues and private functions throughout Tasmania. The Breed have a reputation as the ultimate 60s party band, specialising in 60s theme nights. Their song line-up has something for everybody, and the Breed will give you a fun-filled night offering a great time for everyone!

The current line up of the Breed features Wayne Crisp (Guitar), Kenny White (Drums) and Dan Graver (Bass).

Wayne is the founding member and leader of The Breed. He has played guitar all his life and loves the whole mid 60s pop culture. He has an LP collection that would require a semi-trailer to move (almost!). His energy on stage, and rhythm-lead playing style, enables him to carry off a full sound. As the lead singer, his vocal style is in keeping with the 60s influences, but carries a modern flavour equally as well.

Kenny is originally from the UK where he played drums with prog rock band Clear Blue Sky. He is a drummer’s drummer, and brings a true authenticity to the beat of the Breed. His solid backbeat has lifted their sound to the next level.

Dan is a multi-talented musician, playing both drums and guitar in addition to bass. He brings a sense of fun and adventure to The Breed. His solid bass lines and strong vocal harmonies fit well with the rest of the band. In his spare time he collects vintage guitars.
