Gecko Theory are an independent 4-piece alternative rock band from Melbourne. Founded in early 2011 by Brothers Jack and Michael van de Ven, and childhood friend Glyn Dalton, they have an unshakable focus on melodic and meaningful song writing that ranges from light acoustic to heavy rock. They are an energetic group of young guys with over a decade’s worth of musical experience, a great attitude and a deep passion for playing live music.
Gecko Theory’s major influences range from the thunderous intensity of Danny Carey of Tool, to the melodic bass lines of the Stone Temple Pilots; from the sonorous growl of early 90’s grunge pioneers Cornell & Cobain to the pitch perfect wails of Dimebag & Hendrix. Gecko Theory love music, and that love is contagious - they feed off the crowd creating electric and memorable live performances.
In mid 2013 Gecko Theory were blessed with the opportunity to recruit long time friend and amazing drummer Peter McDonald, and with Pete's added ability and experience, promptly decided the time was right to hit the studio to create their second EP, Get Busy Liv’n, featuring a unique blend of music showcasing their diverse sound. Armed with this EP, they are prepared and confident to take on the music world!
The boys are looking to build on what was a rewarding 2013, whose notable achievements included coming 4th in Gunn Music’s Battle of the Bands @ the Espy, playing some big gigs around many of Melbourne’s most famous venues, playing live tracks on triple R, and recording their second EP.
