Jonno Zilber (guitar and vocals)

Matty G (bass guitar)
Matthew Gallagher first learnt the piano from the age of 5. He got an electric bass for his 13th birthday and starting playing around with it, then after forming a band with school-mates Jonno Zilber and James Combridge in year 7, he was well on his way to producing the driving bass sound for what is now known as Jonno and the Zilberfish.
Jimbo has been drumming since the age of 7. Although he never had formal lessons, he has managed to develop his skills by watching and listening to other drummers, which has given him the versatility that many highly trained drummers could only dream of having. He has been performing with many groups, for many occasions in and around Canberra for the last few years.
