In a special, one-night only event, The Reef Hotel Casino is proud to host the Redfern Brothers. Bringing with them a slice of music history, this unique show is a rare opportunity to experience the duo who are considered Australian showbiz royalty. An Evening with the Redfern Brothers is part of the Casino’s ongoing commitment to live music under the umbrella of the Ballroom Dinner Shows.

Hardly strangers to the Australian music industry, Derek and Jamie Redfern stole the hearts of the music loving public at incredibly young ages and their show promises to be an interactive trip down memory lane. Celebrating the work and legacies of pop icons who inspired them, the show is an intimate affair that not only includes some incredible music, but also some unforgettable tales of the Australian industry. The Redfern Brothers will share stories about Young Talent Time and the wonderful friendships they’ve fostered and sustained over the years. Needless to say, the duo will also be performing their own hit singles. Thrilled to be performing together again, this special event is a showcase of their extensive and rewarding musical careers and partnerships.

Derek Redfern’s career began with the immensely successful variety show Young Talent Time, a television phenomenon that propelled Derek into the spotlight at a young age. He was one of the most popular acts on the show; receiving countless fan letters weekly. Derek’s success can also be attributed to his hit single, Put Your Head On My Shoulder, which became a top ten hit in Australia in the early seventies. After such great success as a child performer, Derek moved away from the limelight for a few years and concentrated on raising a young family. At one time, the only audience privy to Derek’s beautiful singing voice was his mother and the residents at her nursing home. When his mother passed away Derek made the meaningful decision to return to performance and showbiz.

Jamie Redfern – Derek’s older brother – is Australia’s most successful child entertainer. Regarded as a living legend, Jamie’s career highlights include being one of Australia’s highest paid and most popular entertainers, a founding member on Young Talent Time, winning several Logies, plus silver and gold record awards. He was also endorsed by Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and Sammy Davis Junior as one of the best child singer and performer in the world. Like his brother, Jamie was also a fan favourite on Young Talent Time, an experience that quickly escalated into Jamie touring the United States with Mr. Showmanship Liberace, the iconic American pianist, singer and actor. Nicknamed the pocket Sinatra, Jamie also appeared and reappeared on iconic American television shows, including the Johnny Carson show. He also represented Australia at the World Popular Song content in Tokyo Japan at the age of 17. Today, Jamie remains one of Australia’s finest entertainers and can also add the roles of vocal coach, songwriter, motivational speaker, journalist, television producer and performing arts director to his extensive list of achievements.
