Weddings, corporate events, private functions and live music venues, Easy Pickings are a dynamic, live acoustic duo featuring melodic female lead vocals/guitar accompanied by a vibrant, male rhythm guitar/vocalist.

Also available with a full band, Easy Pickings have opened for Passenger, Chocolate Starfish, Daryl Braithwaite, Dragon and the Black Sorrows. Bringing a repertoire spanning from contemporary folk to rocking old school favourites, their setlist includes covers from Angus & Julia Stone, Foo Fighters, Powderfinger, The Pretenders and Paul Kelly just to name a few. An accomplished guitarist and gifted performer, Dale has performed professionally throughout the Cairns region for the past five years.

Kim is a talented vocalist who was recently nominated as a finalist for 'Best Live Entertainment' at the 2012 Douglas Business Awards and recently released her debut solo Ep.

Easy Pickings full vocal and guitar sound mean they do not use backing tracks, and their professional,natural style coupled with a fun, vibrant energy and stage presence has seen them rapidly become a popular local duo.

Some kind word's from previous clients:

We wanted to send a huge thank you to you and Dale. Our wedding day was filled with lots of fun, laughter and love. Made even more special by the perfect music from Easy Pickings. We continue to receive comments from our guests about how great your music was, and how equally fabulous you both were.So with a big cyberspace hug, THANK YOU! It was a pleasure to meet you both

We just wanted to say thanks again for playing such unreal music all night at our wedding! It was totally what we wanted. You guys are great!

Mitch and Nicole - Private wedding client 2013

We contracted Easy Pickings for a corporate event in Port Douglas recently and were very impressed with the bands flexibility and extensive repertoire. Our guests were Americans with many different tastes in music and you managed to please them all! Your professionalism on stage and obvious musical abilities were appreciated.

Thank you for a great evening!
