The greatest multi-state GP jazz/folk/dance/country/rock cover band this nation has produced!

Originally formed for the RACGP conference in Darwin, Simon and the GPettes are 10-14 General Practitioners who like to make music for others. They will run workshops for people who want to listen and seminars for anyone at all. Very vocal on and off stage!

The GPettes (and their sub-bands 'Morris & The Spinach Pickers' and 'The Hermaffradites') have played in Alice Springs, Hobart, Greens Beach, Newcastle and Maffra since forming in 2010.
