Our background…



PETER KEMELFIELD MANAGEMENT
Peter Kemelfield began managing and acting for original bands in the eighties as Peter Kemelfield Management. After many record deals, occasional top forty singles and charting albums with some of Australia's larger acts, 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.

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, TIM CAMPBELL, BJORN AGAIN (a major success story, both in Australia and O/S), PHIL CEBERANO, HOUSEQUAKE, COMBO FIASCO , 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 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.

Mission statement...

Our aim is to provide a professional & pleasant booking experience, with the outcome being a pleasant & stress free event. Service is not a lost art. We look forward to working with you.

Venue entertainment...

We are currently providing entertainment regularly for the following venues:
CROWN CASINO, TATTERSALLS throughout Vic., THE MELBOURNE AQUARIUM, THE LANGHAM HOTEL, CAROUSEL, THE PORTLAND HOTEL & many others.


Our corporate clients include...

THE VICTORIAN RACING CLUB, KPMG, MCDONALDS, SENSIS, PRICE WATERHOUSE COOPERS, SAFEWAY, GRIBBLES PATHOLOGY, TELSTRA, KENMAN KANDY, MARS CONFECTIONERY, TOYOTA, GILLETTE, MICROSOFT, CUB, AUSTRALIAN UNITY, TATTERSALLS, MAN POWER, AUSTRALIA, BP, ESSO, leading hotel chains, AFL clubs & major charity organizations.

"Hi Ella,
Matt Hetherington was superb, songs were great and interaction with our guests was spot on.
WALK LIKE A MAN - (A Salutè To Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons) performed brilliantly and certainly got everyone up on the dance floor. Made John"s birthday night a very special night! We would have no hesitation in using Matt and the band again. Please pass on our appreciation."
Lynne Booth

"Hi Ella,
We really enjoyed the performance of the Tim Campbell Band at our recent Gala Night. The band was really great and Tim himself was a “ball of energy” during his performance – he was terrific."
Dennis Freeman

"Hi Laura
Housequake were fabulous!!! Every person at the function on Friday night has said the band were excellent, extremely entertaining. I have received nothing but rave reviews about them and would highly recommend them to anyone. They played a great mix of music that catered perfectly to our varied ages of guests and constantly had the dance floor full.
On behalf of our Social Committee I would like to thank both the band and the people at bandshop for their professionalism during the organisation of the function and on the night itself. The band were fabulous, they worked into our schedule even after we were running behind time. I would, in the future, recommend both Housequake and Bandshop to anyone.
Thankyou so much for making our Christmas Party such a wonderful and successful night."

"Hi Tim (Tim Campbell Band)
The feedback from last night’s event has been outstanding. To get that many managers up dancing at this event is unheard of. Thankyou to your and your band for giving an excellent performance.
Many thanks."

"Peter, with the conclusion of the 2001 Melbourne Cup Carnival, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support throughout the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Your assistance with helping us solve our entertainment problems for the major race days was very much appreciated. A lot of time and effort goes into making these events the huge successes that they continue to be. Thanks for all your help."

The quality & presentation of the bands coupled with your professionalism created the perfect recipe & assisted in making this year’s events our biggest yet. I look forward to working with you again."

"Peter, on behalf of the St Kilda Football Club please accept our thanks for organizing the Funky Film X-Press to play at our Dinner Dance at the Hilton on Saturday night. The band were fabulous & really made the night a success. I was thrilled with the way the band vibed everyone up & had the dance floor packed. Thanks to you & the band."
Natalie Dean

"Peter, Babba were a great success at the Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers Association Annual Conference Opening Dinner, which was attended by 480 people at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in Tasmania. The feedback we received the next day from delegates, was that it was our ‘best night ever.’ Many thanks."

"Hey, you guys are great!
Not only was Angie Hilton, MC,  bubbly, vivacious and very adaptable to change on the day, but you managed to create magic (literally) when Peter was able to provide a replacement ‘magician’ – within an hour and a half!  (By the way, Peter Rodda was terrific and had the kids eating out of his hands). Thanks so much for ‘pulling a rabbit from your hat’ when another agent let us down and failed to deliver promised performers."
Ann-Maree Eckersley
Festival Coordinator



"Peter and Erin,
Just a short note to say thank you for making such a great effort to ensure our evenings success on Friday. We have had some excellent feedback, and the teams appear to have enjoyed another great Christmas event."
