Brisbane Shadows Players are a group of musicians who meet on the 2nd Sunday each month at Gaythorne Bowls Club to play live instrumental guitar music of the very popular British band The Shadows and similar styles, as well as other popular 50s and 60s songs. For those who do not know The Shadows, they were a very highly successful instrumental British band from the 1960s.
Several Brisbane Shadows Players performers played in well-known Brisbane bands in the 1960s and all enjoy meeting up to once again perform the great music they played and listened to as teenagers and to catch up with new and old friends.
All music is performed live with a full band consisting of both amateur and former professional musicians.
Brisbane Shadows Players have been playing together and meeting each month since January 2012.
They played at Albany Creek Tavern for almost 4 years and then moved to Enoggera Bowls Club which is closing for redevelopment.
They have now found a new home at Gaythorne Bowls Club.
Special guest artists have performed at Brisbane Shadows Players meetings including Gary Taylor the Gypsy Jazz rhythm guitarist of the legendary Hank Marvin of The Shadows, and the late Phil Emmanuel and the late Greg Doolan (from the band Wickety Wak).
Visiting amateur musicians from interstate as well as the UK and New Zealand have also performed from time to time when on holidays in Brisbane.
Brisbane Shadows Players have a popular website with videos from every meeting since 2012 and many photos.
