The Hired - Live Music

The Hired is a power duo, two thirds of popular Brisbane high energy trio “The Firing Squad”, who have recently relocated to the Sunshine Coast and are gathering notability with their unique vibed up representation of hits that have otherwise been pushed aside as too hard or simply underplayed.
These boys don’t shy away from a challenge.
With a solid wall of sound and strong vocal colouring, The Hired are a duo keen to wander out of the well worn tracks of those sets that have been heard too many times before.

The Hired duo is a very popular choice for weddings, corporate events and other private functions with a fresh mix of easy listening, modern pop, modern country and classic rock hits.

Also available as -

Acoustic trio with acoustic guitar, bass, drum/percussion
Band (see The Firing Squad)

Sound Application - Minimal space and maximum sound control

To perform is one thing, but to produce a quality sound that is enjoyable to everyone is another.
And this does not mean that volume is energy.

As professional musicians should, The Hired have invested in high quality equipment strengthening their position in the entertainment arena as a versatile act that can perform within the needs of any sound conscious or space conscious client or venue.
With the use of in-ear monitoring and instruments direct input into a high clarity and compact PA (eliminating on stage amps and noise) with electric drums, volume is as simple as one overall slider.
For the more generous venues, a larger PA system - which still possesses the same audio brilliance - can be combined with a full back-line of onstage amps and acoustic drums.

To compliment the acts performance and audio pleasure, a first class lighting and effects package complete with smoke machines, laser lights and moving LED's can also tastefully added. 

Hi Treva,
It was a pleasure,  from the first time I heard you guys in Toowoomba, I knew immediately you would be perfect for our event.
You were very pleasant to deal with and you fit in so well with our varied group of all ages.  Very professional in all dealings as an entertainment provider.
The feed-back was also very favourable and your repertoire was perfect !
Looking forward to catching up again.

Hi Treva
Just a quick email to compliment you all on such a smooth operation 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 !

Good morning Treva,
Thank you both so much for your wonderful entertainment last Saturday evening. It has been a long time since we have seen people get so involved so quickly.
We would also like to mention that it was a pleasure to work with someone who knows exactly what is needed and how to go about it from our first contact right through to soundcheck with Dreamweavers to closedown. Our jobs are made much easier when we don't have to try and deal with the finer details only a musician would understand. 
Jess and I will be recommending Queensland Entertainment and The Hired to all of our clients and contacts.

Hi Treva,
Thank you for coming out and playing at the event, all three of you did a fabulous job with a really good choice of songs. The sound and lighting package was well worth it too.
