The BBQ Kings
Musical comedy act
The BBQ Kings is the brainchild of Tony Williams, Pat Drummond and Chris O’Leary – three Aussie larrikins who love sharing a good yarn with mates behind the flame of their barbie.
Also three of Australia’s most experienced stage performers, they specialise in singing sizzling harmonies and burning meat. They are The BBQ Kings.
The BBQ Kings offer great entertainment for corporate dinners, festivals and events.
Cooking up a storm from behind their souped-up, six-burner, eighty-eight piano key barbie with tongs, guitar, and blues harmonica in hand, The BBQ Kings deliver an assortment of quirky original songs, seasoned with a funny, witty and a deliciously tender performance.
Their stage show represents a coming together of interactive comedy, banter, clever song writing, brilliant vocal harmonies and highly skilled musicianship.
Who will be able forget those soon-to-be classics: Manboob, When Your Hair Begins to Go or The Day that Tammy Took the Tong? These are songs that every Aussie bloke relates too and women laughingly understand.
Blending their unique brand of quirky humour, energetic storytelling and musical mastery, The BBQ Kings will bring comedic brilliance to your table.
They’re hot, they’re funny and they do a mean snag. They are The BBQ Kings.
