Our Biographies

Piet Collins

I’m probably best known for being an original member of chart topping 90’s band “The Sharp”. The band went on to release three albums through Warner Music (debut achieved an ARIA Gold Award). I’ve also performed in the backing band with the following artists; Normie Rowe, U.S soul legends The Crystals, Tina Arena, Nichaud Fitzgibbon, Fiona Horne (Def FX), Scott Owen (The Living End) Brian Mannix (Uncanny X Men), Paul Norton, Brian Cadd, The Chantoozies, David Sterry (Real Life), John Paul Young, Grace Knight, Paul Gray (Wa Wa Nee) Sean Kelly (The Models), Archie Roach, Russel Morris, Dale Ryder (Boom Crash Opera) James Freud (The Models), The Machinations. Scott Carne (Kids in the Kitchen) Michael Spiby/The Badloves, Alyce Platt and U.K 80’s megastars ABC.

I took a hiatus from music in 1997 and went on to be a scriptwriter/storyliner at “Neighbours” for ten years where I ended up writing over 70 half hours of the popular TV soap. This is where I met my life and business partner Karen Newman who was working as a Casting coordinator on the show. This office romance resulted in love and marriage and two gorgeous daughters. Fast forward to 2016 and every weekend I play in bands at weddings/parties everything and this is where the idea for a high quality event company was born. After 30 years in the entertainment industry I decided to use my knowledge and expertise to provide clients with the highest quality event experience possible.
