Our Background

PETER KEMELFIELD MANAGEMENT 


Peter Kemelfield has worked professionally in the Music Industry for over 30 years & in that time has negotiated numerous recording & publishing deals, managed, stage managed & worked with some of Australia's best known acts.

With occasional top forty singles and charting album success with some of Australia's larger acts during the 80's, Peter came across tribute bands when asked to represent Absolutely Live The Doors Experience & then Babba turning the act into a million plus dollar a year business.

Peter has also taught The Music Business course at Box Hill College of Tafe part time for 4 years & has held high ranking positions with the Music Managers' Forum & The Australian Entertainment Agents Association.


BANDSHOP


Now, over 30 years later, a new direction has been forged with the continuing success of a wide variety of exclusive managed acts such as the inimitable MATT HETHERINGTON, SAM LUDEMAN, 'COXY' GEOFF COX, DAN HAMILL, BOB VALENTINE and many others. With the introduction of bandshop the flexibility of a professional booking agency has been added so that clients can book the services of our exclusive acts & any other quality artist currently performing.


COMEDYSHOP


And then came comedyshop... Ok who doesn't like a laugh? We love comedians! In fact we love comedians so much we decided to set up an agency for them!

Because of our 30+ years of experience we understand what is required & can choose the right funny person for the right style of event. Distinguishing between a gala event & a smoky pub where language is not an issue is imperative. We make sure that we choose the right comedian for the right job.

In addition to supplying a vast array of entertainment, with our many years of hands on experience we can confidently guide our clients through their PA, lighting & staging requirements & even, if required, suggest suitable venues & caterers. We have a large data base of quality suppliers & work with most of them on a regular basis.

We pride ourselves on being able to source the best person for the job every time & to make our clients feel like they've been looked after from start to finish, with an administration team that is second to none.
