Biography

The finest in dancefloor hits from the 70s to the Noughties, super soulful rhythms and futuristic heavyweight funk.

Leading the band, and one of Australia’s foremost exponents of Acid Jazz and Urban Groove, Saxophonist Rick Robertson has a wealth of experience and success being one of the founding members of D.I.G and Eon. He has played all over the world at major festivals, from the St Kilda festival in Melbourne to the Montreux Jazz festival in Switzerland, and funky clubs from New York to Berlin. Ian Mussington Originally from London, where he worked with the likes of Lonnie Liston Smith, Cameo, Stevie Winwood, Courtney Pine, Paul Weller and Steve Williamson, drummer Ian Mussington spent five years in the States touring and recording with Soul Asylum. He now resides in Sydney and is laying down wicked beats with a truly international flavour. Gerard Masters is one of the finest and most innovative young Keyboard players in the Sydney scene. International tours with Missy Higgins and regular gigs with Glass, Virna Sanzone, Lily Dior and his own trio make him a very sort after artist. Evelyn Duprai is a true soul diva who has emerged on the scene in style bringing her amazingAretha Franklin meets Grace Jones vocals to set the place on fire. She has toured with Silverchair, Paul Mac and James Morrison. Alex Hewetson, commonly known as G.O.B (god of bass), has toured and recorded with many great acts including Savage Garden, James Morrison, Swoop and DIG. His grooves have been heard all over the world and we are very lucky to have this man in town. Eon Beats was formed to play the Sydney club scene and was immediately in demand with a residency at Bennelong at the Opera House, festivals all over Australia including St Kilda Festival, Darling Harbour Jazz Festival, Vibes on a Summers Day and the Playground Weekender. Sold out gigs at the Basement in Sydney, featured spots at the Darling Harbour Jazz Festival, and the release of “Blue Rhythm People” late 2008 have propelled this band well into the new decade. Eon Beats now regularly performs with 6 or 9 musicians onstage featuring Percussion, DJ, and Horn section.
