Galapagos Duck began in the late 60's while the members were engaged in a winter season at the New South Wales skiing resort 'The Kosciusko Chalet' Charlottes Pass.
After returning to Sydney the band continued to work and became well known in the Australian jazz and music scene during the 70's when it was the house band at the emerging Jazz night club 'The Basement' near Circular Quay.Since these humble beginnings the 'Duck' it has been suggested, has become the best known jazz band in Australia and a household name throughout the Country.
The band has worked and continues to work in Concert Halls, Night Clubs, at Jazz Festivals, in the Recording Studio, and on Radio and Television.Although the membership has changed, of necessity, the direction of the band has always remained the same and that is to create a performance experience that while jazz oriented is able to be appreciated and enjoyed by everybody.
The lineup for the band is: Rodney Ford - Drums, - Richelle Booth- Saxes, Flutes, Steel Drums Willy Qua - Sax - Wil Sargisson -Keyboard - John Conley - Bass
