Event description

Greg came to notice in the Eighties on ABC radio with the song I Made a 100 In The Backyard At Mum’s.  Now he’s released over 30 CDs, and won a few gongs in the VMI category: ‘Vaguely Minor Identity’.  Champs has been a member of institutional ABC radio programme The Coodabeen Champions for 36 years. Greg grew up in the Hectorville Home For The Visually Unpleasant, and nowadays does guest speaking, where he’s classified as a De-Motivational Speaker. A four time runner-up in the Australian Underachiever Awards, Champs has no criminal record.

Raised in Adelaide. ‘Accidentally’ born in Benalla, Victoria. Arts degree from Adelaide Uni. Lifelong Norwood and Crows fan.  Played in four Adelaide bands then moved to Melbourne in 1979 to explore the band scene. Met the Coodabeen Champions in 1983. Still a member, 36 years on. Wrote I Made a 100 in the Backyard at Mum’s in 1985. 23 Tamworth Festivals, a dozen Port Fairy Festivals, dozens of Gympie Musters, Maldon Festivals, Canberra fests etc. A few Tamworth gongs, Victorian Country Music gongs and two ARIA nominations. Wrote That’s The Thing About Football in 1994. Double platinum album for Aussie Christmas with Bucko & Champs. Played at 3 VFL-AFL grand finals and several one-day cricket finals. The artist is still trying to work out what it is he does.

His musical diversity however, extends beyond sports fields to include more moving and descriptive songwriting capturing the emotion of Australian life in the way that John Williamson, Eric Bogle and Ted Egan are renowned for.

My comments about Greg revolve around his ability to completely engage his audience with his ability to turn emotions upside down in seconds. Be prepared for a roller coaster emotional ride. Greg is the original real thing and brings a very unique sense of humor to his audiences, that once witnessed is never forgotten. Take the time to have a good look at the other side of Greg Champion.

The Healesville Greyound Club's venue, "The Shed" has superb sound, comfortable seating, great ambience, plenty of parking AND A BAR!!

You will be very comfortable there.
