Chris McClure has years of experience as a soloist and in duos. He began performing with bands in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney; he has worked in several musical areas including rhythm ‘n’ blues, showband and big-band entertainment.
Over recent years, he has concentrated on a combination of solo and duo work, building a large repertoire to cover clubs and hotels, and also the jazzier, more laid-back restaurant venues. Earlier Chris formed Rum Jungle, which has performed around Southeast Queensland for several years.
Chris plays most types of gigs from major venues to small clubs and restaurants, and has worked from the Gold Coast to the Whitsunday Islands. The Rum Jungle duo was chosen for the opening of Asia’s newest Hilton International Hotel in Dalian, China. Chris also worked a sixth-month residency at the Tokyo Hilton from Christmas 2002.
Working solo and with Rum Jungle, Chris has held many long-term residencies on the Sunshine Coast, at venues such as Noosa’s Cafe le Monde, the O’Malley’s Bar complex, the Mooloolaba Surf Club and most of the Coast’s clubs.
