Les has played on and produced several albums for various artists including backing vocals on Jim Key’s “Do What You Wanna Do!” re-released single in the eighties and still is active in the recording industry. Known for his high vocal range, Les enjoys the challenging songs and arrangements the Hibernators, and his previous bands are famous for.

Robbo has played and recorded with artists such as Geisha, Jim Keays (Masters Apprentices), Ross Ryan and Mick Pealing (Stars).

Neil Scott (guitar/vocals)
Neil grew up in Manchester and learned to play guitar by listening to records by The Beatles, The Hollies and The Who.
Neil later turned professional with Les Brazil in what became Chalice. After moving to Australia, Chalice went on to enjoy considerable success including a recording contract with Polydor, an album produced by Jon English and numerous TV appearances including Countdown. After Chalice folded in 1979, Neil joined Albatross with Dallas in the early Eighties before resuming full time music with Les and The Stealers in 1986. Both bands had a reputation for their rendition of
“Bohemian Rhapsody” with Les’ soaring vocals and four part harmonies. The Stealers folded in 1995 and several smaller projects followed before Neil formed the Captain Spalding Trio in 2000 but decided to “retire” from music in 2004.
An invitation in 2013 to play with The Wendy Stapleton Band reignited Neil’s interest in performance and lead to his current involvement with Sixties band The Substitutes and the Marty Rose Band.
Dallas Booth (guitar/vocals)
Dallas was a founding member of the Melbourne cover band ‘Albatross’ in the 70s , and has been involved with harmony-style bands ever since. When Neil joined Albatross they soon became friends and together they worked on de-cyphering the Eagles and Crosby, Stills and Nash harmonies of the day, to deliver them live on stage. Similar cover-bands were to follow after the Albatross years, where he met and played with Les, and then a brief move for a year or two into the Robin Jolley band. A passionate songwriter, Dallas was Nominated for the American Songwriting Awards and invited to the Presentation ceremony in Nashville in 2014. He still writes, but has now become devoted to the new Hibernators , and says it’s the best harmony project he’s ever been involved in.
