The Firing Squad - Live Music

A unique blend of a trios live energetic performance with the addition of the latest loops and beats provided by an onstage DJ giving a complete entertainment experience.

This is an act that creates a dilema amongst it audience - when do you stop dancing ?

The Firing Squad band is a constant stream of modern live entertainment with a powerful and engaging trio supported by the current dance loops filling intros and breaks by a forth member who creates his craft from spining and layering.

With differences in style Quenel Mott and Treva Scobie share the lead vocal duties doubling this acts versatility and potency.
Sitting in the backrow with his hand firmly on the throttle is Bret Luton, also adding another third to vocal harmonies.
Mixing familiar hooks into the trios soundscape is DJ Scuz who also keeps the latest hits firing through the bands breaks, keeping the crowd warm.

"From what I have learnt about the live entertainment industry and the people that want to be entertained, is that there hasn't been enough thought into what keeps people in front of cover bands. The Firing Squad keeps it's foot down for 4 or 5 hours giving the crowd a fresh mix of rock, pop and dance with lights, atmosphere, energy and on top of that a whole new dimension created by adding a DJ as the forth member"

QE Talent Scout, Brisbane

"We would just love to say how much our guests enjoyed listening and dancing (some very energetically!) to the Firing Squad. Many of our guests have asked who you were and how they can get in touch with you. On a more personal note, you made a very uncomfortable situation very simple. We seriously could not have had a better band perform at our wedding and we are so glad that we were lucky enough to have you looking after our event. It’s always a good wedding when the bride and groom get to have as much fun as the guests, and you guys ensured that this was possible.
Thank you thank you thank you !!!"

"The Firing Squad were not only the most professional band I have worked with, but also the most dedicated act that I have seen.
Their song choice and their ability to perform consistently at such a high level resulted in an overwhelming positive response from the crowd. The bonus was having a DJ on stage to keep the momentum flowing throughout the bands breaks, then cleverly bringing them back in with creative loops & intros. 
With the assistance of UltraSound AV, the whole night was left in very capable hands, with the sound and lighting being effective throughout speeches, awards and entertainment.
An investment in entertainment that went above and beyond the desired outcome."

"... I am a huge supporter of Quenel and Treva on their own - but wow !!! What a team they have put together.
This is is a wake up call for all high end cover bands. Awesome night"

Hi Treva
Just a quick email to compliment you all on such a smooth opperation considering the last minute changes that had to be made. The band worked with the situation quite easily (in my past experiences most would have been put out) The photobooth team couldn't have been more co opperative and treated our guests with a high standard of care and professionalism.
We will being adding you to speed dial !

Hi Treva. Just wanted to say thanks very much to you and your crew for making my surprise 40th such a banger ! Everyone was super impressed with you guys and lots of Sydney people were loving how solid Brisbane rocks.

"I really could not get to thank you all enough last Friday night. The low key selection of music you performed early in the evening, and then timing it perfectly to transform into this high energy act just as it was needed, went down a treat.
Chris from UltraSound, was also a breeze to work with, and we appreciate him going out of his way to fix up our little location problem - which made all the difference in the end. Something we will now be aware of next time.

Also, a big thank you to Troy for the Photobooth. This was easily the most effective piece of marketing the comittee invested in."

Hayley McLean
QLD Fundraiser - Cancer Council

"For the past three years I have use Treva at Qld Entertainment to source a band to travel west to Charleville to play at the RFDS Hangar Ball.
It's a credit to Treva and his team that our event has become a sell out. Every year we are complemented by all that attended on the band that has played. This year was no exception with the dance floor coming alive before the sun went down to the beats by the ‘Firing Squad’. We can not thank you (Treva) and the bands that travel to us (1600km round trip from Brisbane) enough, for your ease of dealings, professionalism when setting and packing up and of course for your fabulous ‘beats’.
Thank you, thank you, thank you !"
