Nick Beech (Drums / Lead Vocals)
Nick has been playing drums since before he can remember and it sure shows on stage making it look all too easy. But when the band first formed and had no singer Nick decided to put his hand up. This turned out to be a good decision giving McKenzie something different and turning heads in the crowd. With a vocal range from Johnny Cash to the likes of MIKA the band can play almost anything. With such an out there personality Nick isn’t shy to swap from drums to guitar or even saxophone to really entertain the crowd.
Jordan Beech (Rhythm Guitar / Backing Vocals)
Jordan is the rhythm guitarist for McKenzie but isn’t shy to let loose on the harmonica, bringing out a unique side to a number of songs, and occasionally taking a turn on the drums when big brother Nick hits the saxophone. Jordan has a great ear for harmonies which really brings a whole new dimension to the band and a great experience for the crowd.
David Neil (Keys & Vocals)
David was born to sing and entertain. Originally from New Zealand, he graduated from the ‘We came to Play’ school of music before moving to Sydney where he played a key role in award winning show bands, dance bands and vocal groups, performing alongside many international artists. David’s experience, professionalism and passion for music brings an exciting new flavour to McKenzie and it shows in every performance.
Paul Bergola (Bass & Vocals)
Paul has recently called Australia home after spending many years supporting leading recording artists & bands throughout Asia. Not a stranger to the Australian music scene, Paul was a member of Gold Coast band ‘Soul Train’ lead by Australia’s Got Talent 2011 runner up David De Vito, supporting big names such as Kate Ceberano & Jazz great James Morrison. The newest addition to McKenzie is largely influenced by motown’s funk & soul. His dynamic bass lines & energy make you wanna dance!
