Rumour as fact! Nic's dad used to run an airline so it's only appropriate that Nic gets to wear the Wacky Captain's hat. The other guys generally respect him and follow his flight plan but stopped short at paying to be members of the airport lounge he set up in the office or subscribing to his loyalty program.
As the founder and driving force behind Wacky Creative, Nic's portfolio reflects a career rich in diverse performance and event experience. Having been involved in the entertainment industry for over 20 years Nic is in high demand for his creative concepts and wide variety of performance skills including MC, comedian, musician, conference facilitator, team builder, producer, creative writer and problem solver.
Nic has steered the growth of Wacky from a single musical roving group to a multi faceted and diverse company involved with over 500 events per year. At the end of the day, Nic takes fun seriously!
Col has been a Wacky man from the start. In fact joining Wacky back in 1996 was a Wacky idea in itself. At the time he was forging a highly successful career removing stickers off apples. Oh, and he was a professional musician working in the Australian Pops Orchestra and teaching music in expensive schools and universities between coffee breaks.
Following years of incredible experiences all over the world with Wacky Creative, Col has expanded his bag of tricks... or rather hats... to include skills such as Percussionist, Master of Ceremonies, Stand Up Comedian*, Corporate Imposter, Keynote Speaker, Actor, Author, Producer, Voice Over Artist, Copywriter, Husband and Father of three.
Col has written 2 books on Stand Up Comedy.
*Col is a guest entertainer (Stand Up Comedian) for Carnival, Princess and Royal Caribbean cruise lines.
Tuba by Design
Joining Wacky on Tuba when he was just 12 years old, ok not quite... he was very young, Luke has become an indispensable member of the team. He not only makes an enormous bass sound, selflessly creating a rich foundation for his fellow musicians, but his quirky personality keeps everyone in hysterics. Luke ALWAYS carefully folds his clothes in the greenroom. He never eats junk food. He can sleep in 8 seconds during turbulence on a 3rd world airline. Oh and after 2 years of wondering why his instrument sounded a little tinny, his repair guy found a can of deodorant stuck inside his tuba. True.
Seriously though, Luke is in great demand as a musician regularly freelancing whenever great bands need a quality bass sound. Luke is also a super talented graphic designer and is a professional event manager, running an annual design conference attracting over 5000 delegates.
The Travelling Trumpeter
One of the funniest trumpet players you'll ever meet, Wacky veteran Greg Spence is an all round performer. Blessed with a bright, rich sound, a huge repertoire and a personality to match, Greg is frankly... annoying. Especially for we mere mortals who have to play with him. As well as constantly travelling with Wacky Creative, Greg has worked with some of the biggest names in music including John Farnham, Tim Minchin, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (Carnegie Hall), West Australian Symphony Orchestra and Col Cameron.
Greg is also lead trumpeter on Dancing With The Stars and The Logies.
His professional theatre experience includes shows like Chicago, Mame, Funny Girl, Fame, Annie and many more. His versatility in commercial, jazz, Latin American, funk and classical playing has made him an in demand session trumpeter with a long list of credits including national advertising campaigns for the Boag’s Beer Company, the Ford Car Company and Panasonic.
In recent years Greg has become a leading force in brass music education with his company 'Mystery to Mastery'. He has published multiple books and now regularly tours the world teaching masterclasses in universities and music conservatories. Greg is a Yamaha Music Artist.
The dancing accountant
Brooke has the most difficult job of all. She has to keep a team of A-type misfits on track. Luckily, apart from being an administrative genius and bookkeeping virtuoso she has a wealth of experience in the entertainment industry. Brooke is one of the most experienced professional dancers in the country and uses her experience to Wacky Creative's advantage. When the call comes through to produce a Flashmob, 10 Oompa loompas, catwalk models, dancers in laser suits or a major choreographed feature it's Brooke to the rescue.
When she's not producing entertainment for Wacky, you will find Brooke dancing all over the world. She was Dance Captain on the exclusive Silverseas Cruises touring South America and Europe. Her TV credits include all major Australian TV networks on shows including Dancing With The Stars, The Footy Show, Deal Or No Deal and Australian Idol. High end corporate shows continue to see her travel extensively throughout Europe, India, Sri Lanka, China and the Middle East.
