Between 1971 and 1978, Sherbet released 15 albums and 30 singles, many reaching the National Top 40.

RACHEL BECK

Much of Rachael's current time is dedicated to musical theatre, including her most recent role of 'Kathy Selden' in the hit IMG production of Singing in the Rain directed by David Atkins, which earned her a prestigious Mo Award nomination.

GLENN SHORROCK

Little River Band cracked the lucrative United States market in 1976, and began a string of eight Top Ten Hits in the U.S.A. and around the world. The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums, often being credited for opening the door for many Australian acts on the international circuit.

ANDREW DESILVA BAND

Andrew De Silva's raw blend of R&B Funk and Rock catapult him into a league of his own. Defying any boundaries set in the musical genres that he incorporates into his fresh fusions, De Silva's music can't be pigeonholed.

Former  singer and songwriter of R&B group 'CDB', De Silva toured throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia, leading them to accomplish great success, here and abroad. They opened shows for Boys II Men, Tina Arena and K-ci & Jo-jo to name a few...

CHRISTINE ANU

Christine Anu has always been one impressive woman. 

From the release of her platinum selling debut "Stylin' Up", her involvement with the award winning Bangarra Dance company, through to her appearances in amazing musicals such as "Rent", 

Christine has always managed to stay in vogue, in form and incredible.

BOOM CRASH OPERA

Almost from its inception in 1985, Boom Crash Opera was the subject of competition between major record companies in a bid to snare the band. Boom Crash Opera eventually signed to WEA with immediate results. 

Pete Farnan and Richard Pleasance formed Boom Crash Opera in Melbourne with Peter Maslen, Greg O'Connor and newcomer Dale Ryder. Ryder became a pin-up idol, and it seemed Boom Crash Opera would become a case of contrived form over substance. 

DEBORAH CONWAY

Everyone remembers Deborah Conway's hit single "It's Only The Beginning' and the Aria award winning album 'String Of Pearls', but for people whose main contact with music is through commercial radio, she all but disappeared. Those with their ear to the ground, however, know she's been busy. In a business where careers are fleeting and marked by safe choices, Deborah has been pursuing the challenging.
