Firefly consists of five extremely talented, highly experienced musicians. As a band they are developing a great reputation and following in the Illawarra and leaving audiences coming back for more.

The band features Margaret King on lead vocals, acoustic guitar and percussion, Will Tibben on vocals and acoustic guitar and lead guitarist Cary Buecher. The house gets a rocking with the addition of the powerhouse rhythm section, bass player Matt Crawford and drummer Andrew Jackson.

Margaret our lead vocalist has an energizing presence and has sung alongside performers including Monica Trapaga, Greedy Smith, Zoltan Budhai, Kevin Bennett, Jeremy Edwards, Liza Olback and The Voice finalists Dianna Rouvas, Simon Meli, and Gail Page. Margaret has written original songs including her latest ‘Don’t look back’ co-written with Shane Nicholson.

Cary Buecher has played guitar in a broad range of musical styles and projects; currently these include the Sweet Home Chicago Blues Brothers show and 3 o’clock sunset and previously Kama Sutra, and the Piranha Brothers with Alan Barnes.

Will, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, has sung and played guitar and bass for well-loved local bands including Monkey’s Uncle, Seaside Neighbours, The Suspects and Tamnesia.

Matt Crawford, the youngster of the group always impresses. He is an in-demand live and session bass player appearing at gigs from Sydney to the Southern Highlands to the South Coast. Matt can be seen on stage with artists and groups including Steel City Muthafunkas, Big Blues Party and 11 11 Nation. Matt is also one of the creative forces behind the Patio Sessions.

Andrew ‘Jacko’ Jackson has been playing drums and percussion in local bands for the past 40 years … so far … and with many more to come. He is a versatile drummer having played with The Suspects, Bluesberry Jam, Payday Millionaires, Strange Brew, Monkey’s Uncle and 3 o’clock sunset.
