Paul Brennan

Welcome to Cairns and Townsville Wedding Entertainer and solo Singer Guitarist's, Paul Brennan's website. I specialize in Hotels, Weddings, Parties and Corporate functions. Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Cairns, Atherton Tablelands, Mission Beach, Cardwell, Townsville and all points in between, are places I perform at regularly.  I have also been known to go much further afield on many  occasions.

For over 25 years now, I have been lucky enough to make a full time living as a Solo Singer Guitarist/ Entertainer between Pt Douglas, Cairns and Townsville. Singing and playing guitar is something I love to do anyway, and it kind of runs in the family too. My Dad is a great singer and many members of my extended family are full time working musicians as well.

So when people like yourself ask me to perform at their wedding, hotel, corporate function or party... Hey, I'm more than happy to.

My song list has grown to be quite extensive over the years, as I am always learning new material - check it out.

Dunk Island Days

I also spent 4.5 years working full time as the solo singer guitarist/entertainer at Dunk Island Resort an internationally popular resort off the coast of Mission Beach, until it was shut down by tropical cyclone Yasi back in early 2011. For the most part I played 6 nights a week in the Main Bar to the in house guests. I also played for many of the weddings and corporate function that were held there as well.

In fact I played over 1000 gigs there in that time... can't help but get better as a musician under that sort of work load.

The Gig

These days I play the guitar and sing in the local bars and clubs in and around Cairns and Townsville. But I also get to do some really cool stuff on occasion as well, such as playing support to some high profile Australian acts.

Acts like Ash Grunwald, Diesel, Richard Clapton, John English and Boom Crash Opera.

 

Recent Highlights

  • February 16th 2018 I played support for Ash Grunwald at the Kirwan Tavern in Townsville. That was a great night I got to pull out a few original songs and play them to a very appreciative crowd. Ash has long been a favorite act of mine so I felt it to be quite the honor to be asked to play support and warm up the crowd for him.

       

  

   

  • Flew to Papua New Guinea to play at the Royal Papuan Yacht Club in Pt Moresby for New Years Eve 2017-18. I also played there on Anzac Day 2017 and 2018.

  • 2018 saw me playing at quite a few weddings between Port Douglas, Cairns and Townsville. Couple that with a steady stream of corporate, parties and hotel gigs, 2018 has been a good year so far

Hi Paul, well we are back from our honeymoon now, had a fantastic time in Fiji. Once again thanks for playing for us at our wedding in Palm Cove in August.

Everybody is still talking about how good you were. 

I don't know if you knew, but there were a few guys we actually checked out as well as you. I mean they were really good too but you were just so much better for what we wanted. Thanks again Paul :)"

Testimonial

"Port Douglas is one of Queensland's and Australia's premier tourist destinations. It is very important to us that all of the acts that perform at our venue are of the highest standard.

Paul is a great act and an absolute sure fire winner with our guests every time he plays. His ability to read the crowd and play the appropriate songs is almost uncanny and he makes it look so easy too.

It is plain to see Paul is very dedicated to his craft and I would happily recommend him to anyone seeking a great performer."

Stephanie Griffin - Asst Manager Central Hotel Pt Douglas

Paul Brennan has been a regular solo singer/guitarist at our venue "The Garage" for over 5 years now. Paul is one of those rare soloists who actually pulls a crowd every time he plays.

Aside from being a great act he also interacts and relates to the crowd on a personal level which is one of his major strengths as an act.

We highly recommend Paul Brennan to anybody who is seeking a top line solo musician."

A few years ago I was working in with the Australian Songwriters Association as their coordinator in Nth Queensland. Nine guys from the ASA were traveling around Australia in a coaster bus recording original artists for a national TV show called Wax Lyrical Songwriters. When they arrived in Cairns they camped at my place wherever they could find a space, for a week. It was a very big week. To show their appreciation they made a video for me of a song I wrote called "Shine On"  Thanks guys.
