Ciaran Gribbin – (former lead singer of INXS) performing with Adelaide Party Band Audiobox

About Ciaran Gribbin: Ciaran Gribbin is a Grammy-nominated songwriter and performer who, in addition to working with world class artists such as Madonna, U2, Paul McCartney, Snow Patrol and Al Pacino, has toured the world as the singer of INXS.

Ciaran was born during the Northern Ireland conflict and grew up in The Troubles. As a young musician he cut his teeth doing gig after gig in the tough bars of Belfast and Derry. During this turbulent time, Ciaran witnessed the bombs and bullets of sectarian violence and the paramilitary attacks that enflamed a divided society.

Ciaran was a founding member of the popular Irish band ‘Leya’ which toured for seven years with major acts including Snow Patrol and Embrace. The band also released the critically acclaimed album ‘Watch you don’t take off’. The band was nominated for Best New Act at the Irish ‘Metor’ Music Awards.

Ciaran’s first big break came in 2010 when he received a Grammy nomination for Madonna’s worldwide hit single ‘Celebration’, which he co-wrote with the American megastar and English producer Paul Oakenfold. Ciaran soon became a regular drawcard at music festivals around the world including Brazil’s Rock in Rio. He has opened concerts for acts such as Paul McCartney, Crowded House, The Script and Gotye.

Just as his reputation as a performer kept growing, his career as a gifted composer continued to flourish. He has worked on multiple movie soundtracks, including writing all the songs for the U2-supported feature film Killing Bono.

In 2011, Ciaran became the singer of the legendary Australian band INXS. He has toured extensively with INXS throughout South America, Europe and Australasia.

Ciaran’s song ‘Hey Baby Doll’ which was sung by Al Pacino in the critically-acclaimed movie Danny Collins received an Oscar shortlist nomination.

Ciaran is the founder of Rock and Roll Team Building, a business delivering interactive music programs for corporate companies globally.

Sam Kekovich is an Australian media personality, sports commentator, Australian ‘Lambassador’ and former Australian Rules football player. Engaging and highly entertaining, Sam is a great speaker and Master of Ceremonies.

Slammin’” Sam Kekovich is a flamboyant AFL legend and media personality who is hugely known for his out there antics, both on and off the field. He is also famous for his satires as spokesman for Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) to promote lamb.

Sam commenced his football career with North Melbourne in 1968. The following season he was the clubs top goal kicker, best and fairest player and a Victorian representative player. He was instrumental in the team’s first Premiership victory in 1975. A controversial personality, Sam had several running battles with his icon coach Ron Barassi.

He stayed with the Kangaroos for 125 games up until 1977 when he made the move over to Collingwood. However, his time with the Magpies was short, playing only 4 games and retiring after his first season.

His talent was demonstrated only in bursts here and there due to injury and other non-football activities, including soccer, trampolining, and posing naked in the “Truth” newspaper.

Since Sam’s playing days, he has “turned himself” into an entrepreneur and media identity. He is a regular panelist on Channel 9’s Sunday Footy Show and appears on Triple M’s pre-match AFL coverage. Sam Kekovich was a co-host of Melbourne’s 3AK radio breakfast team, a past presenter on ABC’s The Fat, PTI Australia on ESPN, and presenter on Melbourne sports radio station, SEN 1116.

In 2005 he became the face of the hugely successful meat and livestock advertising campaign for lamb where, in true Keka style, he has told the public to buy lamb or they’ll get a serve from him.

Sam is an engaging MC and entertaining story teller. He is extremely humorous bringing together his best moments and the characters he has encountered over the last 30 plus years, not just on the footy field but in life.
