Mick Thomas has been a staple of Melbourne’s music scene for well over 25 years. Raconteur, troubadour, balladeer and poet, Mick Thomas is best known as the Blundstone-wearing song master of pub-rock icons Weddings Parties Anything. His band The Roving Commission features Squeezebox Wally on Piano Accordion and a rotating schedule of talented performers to keep the party alive.

Mick’s ever-evolving talents as a writer and performer defines a career as intriguing as it is enduring. Further to creating and starring in the hit music theatre piece Vandemonian Lags alongside Brian Nankervis and Tim Rogers. With production credits for bands including The Waifs, soundtrack scores for film and television, music for Theatre, and 21 album releases under the belt with his various bands, side projects and as a solo artist, it’s fair to say that Mick Thomas is something of an Australian music icon, respected by the industry, loved by the crowds for his warm character, his on stage humour, and his ability to traverse the boundaries of rock musician to down home family man.
