One of my old bands from Sydney just did a gig there. I'll see if I can find out what they did about backline and let you know.

* Carvin B1500, Epifani PS1000, Ashdown Superfly amps.

Dave Burke at Ballina (80kms sound of Tweed Heads) was recommended to me at some time, but I've not used him - http://clarityaudioservices.com/contact.html

My old band got back to me. I thought their gig was in early June, but It's not until early July and they will have backline supplied by the club. If your gig is at the Twin Towns club, maybe enquire if they can supply you guys as well?

Otherwise, there are two Brisbane based companies that will service the Gold Coast: GBH Stage Equipment, or Brisbane Backline. The guys are going to go through their contacts for any other CG based companies but they won't be back in their office until Monday morning.

Hey Pdog,

A drummer friend of mine has been running Gold Coast Backline for a long long time. Has supplied many festivals and touring acts.

Great guy, great drummer and knows his stuff. If you check out his website and doesn't have what you are looking for, give him a ring anyway. Tell him Craig Hamilton recommended him to you.

I did a couple of gigs with him - hands down best drummer i've ever played with! Very "Steve Gadd" style.
