More details ↓

Son of a Gunzel are a Hammond combo that play upbeat jazz, blues, and soul, and don’t take themselves too seriously. As sidemen they've toured and recorded with well known Australian artists, but in their spare time they like to get loose and play soul music. Grab a pint, have a boogie, and enjoy the good times.

Sean Simmons (aka Frankie Teardrop) was a main staple at radio stations PBS FM, 4ZzZ FM & RRR FM from 1992 – 2012. Since leaving radio he continues to DJ at venues around Melbourne and festivals & events around the country. Some of his appearances include Melbourne Festival, All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival (at the invitation of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds), Valley Fiesta, St. Kilda Festival and Flickerfest. Expect 50’s strip music, 60s garage & pop AND 70’s funk & soul from all corners of the globe PLUS odd B-grade European soundtrack thrown in for good measure.
