Treva-Main-PicTreva Scobie

For many years two other friends had the jump on Treva in taking control of six strings therefore being relegated to the four thick strings of a bass within their local band.

After travelling Australia and overseas, he has now mastered both and reinforced his skill sets by combining his solid bass timing with acoustic interpretations of rock songs and a well rounded vocal range, to be an all-in-one entertainment package.

His musical journey has given him the opportunity to support or performing alongside many Australian recording artists and musicians.

Treva Scobie also invests his time, knowlege and energy in many ways to strengthen the live music industry. Treva's support and comittment to venues, clients and other performers has been the key to his success.

“You can always rely on Treva to deliver. If there’s 1 person in the bar or 200 he will give 100%. It is hard to believe that he has the time to perform as much as he does and manage as many acts as he does, which is a testament to the professionalism of his whole set up. I always enjoy Treva’s sets and catching up for a chat before, during, and after.”
