Meet HEAD ROOM

Drums & Percussion
Plays Roland & Tama. Loves the power & energy of
driving the rhythm section.
David (aka D1 or Spider) learned his chops playing firstly in brass bands, also playing percussion in his youth with a variety of youth orchestras and bands.
Moving on to find the Blues & Pub Rock, his first band was called Blues Squad. He purchased his Tama Imperialstar kit which he still plays today!
David has played on the Sunshine Coast in bands including First Offence, Cranky Dogs, Best Shot & Defendants. Most recently, he joined with Mark to form Head Room, the pinnacle of a varied but extensive musical career to date
Mark Le Gassick
Love singing Hard Rock and Blues with an edge. And showing off the versatility in my vocal range.
At the age of eight Craig started learning piano. This was soon followed by trumpet and French Horn performing in Orchestra, Concert, Jazz and Big Bands; leading to singing & playing in Blues and Pub Rock bands for 30 years. As a professional musician with eclectic influences, vocal range & control, Craig is the perfect 'frontman' fit for HEAD ROOM.
David P Shortland
Piano & Keys
When it comes to the Black & Whites, this is my life! Play everything, play everywhere and just PLAY!
David begun his musical career as a classical pianist but was soon entranced by the lure of Rock 'n' Roll! He played keys and piano in numerous bands working throughout Australia including 13 years in the 'Official Australian Meatloaf Tribute Show'.
Early 2000s David retired from performance due to his loss of vision, applying his music skills in composing & recording various genres of music including Instrumental Music & Children’s Musicals. In 2017 David returned to live performances playing with Radio Retro & Crossover & more recently HEAD ROOM.
Casey brings his own solid, ‘get-your-feet’ moving style of groove. A conglomeration of hallucinogenic, hard and classic rock with some sweet, funky overtones.
