Cool Change

When you are a Little River Band tribute show and Graeham Goble OAM, one of the founding members of the original band, comes to your show and says, “Authentic and Exciting”, and when David Briggs, one of the iconic LRB songwriters and guitarists, posts on social media, “Local Lads “Cool Change” who play the LRB catalogue sent me this link to a tune I wrote back in 1979. Go and support them as It’s as close to the real thing as you will get, without riding on the tour bus!”, you know you are dealing with more than just your average tribute band.

This is Cool Change – The Ultimate Tribute. Cool Change celebrates the evolution of Australia’s most iconic band, and the many musicians of Little River Band, from their beginnings with The Twilights, Axiom, Zoot, and Mississippi, to the John Farnham years, through to all of LRBs greatest and most memorable hits. The Melbourne based band comprises of 6 very experienced and talented professional musicians, including Jim Nash on drums and vocals, Rob Powell on bass and vocals, Shane McKay and Dan Romano on guitars and vocals and Scott Stickland on keys and vocals.

Cool Change are fronted by lead singer Judd Field, who beyond his natural front man abilities, is also a professional TV singer that regularly performs with productions XFactor, Australian Idol and Australia’s Got Talent. Judd performs many of the lead vocals for TV shows including Dancing With The Stars and has been called out by host Darryl Somers on numerous occasions for his passionate vocal performances. In addition to many of his TV gigs and session work, Judd has been fortunate enough to tour with Australia’s latest international musical sensation Tones And I.

Another string to Judd’s bow is the Melbourne Gospel Choir where he embellishes as choir director and vocal arranger. The MGC regularly performs with artists from around the world on events like the Australian Open, the AFL Grand Final, and of course for the last 20+ years they have been a favourite on Ch9s Carols by Candlelight.

Cool Change – The Ultimate Tribute, with this level of talent, the infectious chemistry of band and their world class professionalism, it is no wonder why this show has people coming back again and again to relive these iconic songs in such an “Authentic and Exciting” way!
