Pete is regarded as one of Australia’s greatest exponents of the trumpet and has played lead with several fantastic bands – The Daly Wilson Big Band, The Glen Miller Band, Ed Wilson Big Band.
Khristina Joy has enjoyed a wonderful music career as the featured vocalist with bands like The Ed Wilson Big Band, and legendary musicians Julian Lee, Bob Barnard, and George Golla.

Jill Harvey began her career in Victoria, appearing on several shows with up-and-coming stars like The Bee Gees, Johnny Chester.
