about

Von Gherkin formed in 1997, consisting of Zoltan Campbell (bass/vox), Ben Robson (drums) and Glen Forner (guitar/vox), mixing many musical influences from rock, funk, Latin, jazz, and general madness...

It wasn't long until the lineup expanded with the additions of Kat Alberts (keys/vox) Dan Fihelly (trumpet/vox) and Dan Nichols (sax/vox). Not to mention live engineer Heath Storrie.

Von Gherkin had a theatrical live show adding to the quirky nature of the music. VG played shows around The Valley and West End regularly from its inception. The band took out awards at the QLD Rock Awards and 4ZZZ Local Band Competition, prizing the band with recording equipment and studio time.

Aside from the local gigs, the band won a touring grant and travelled between Brisbane and Melbourne.

1999 saw the only release for the band with the EP “Voices”, an eclectic mix of songs written over the previous few years.
