Hailing from Geelong, The Geekers are a five piece troupe of actors and musicians who have joined forces to form a quirky band performing classic songs from The Seekers and other 60s bands.  With over 40 years of combined performing experience, The Geekers capture the beautiful vocal harmonies and melodies of 60s music and add their own flair and sense of fun. This group has sold out shows individually but have bought their best work to this quirky ensemble.
