45RPM is a Townsville based band performing Rock 'n' Roll music from the 50's and 60's. The band prides itself on being the only band to deliver an Authentic Rock 'n' Roll Experience.
The concept of the band was formed between members Eugene Wulf (Guitar & Vocals) and Scott Jorgensen (Bass and Vocals) in February 2012. Eugene and Scott, both frustrated with the music they were performing at the time in other bands decided to get together to play some music the had always loved. A list of songs were drawn up and it took off from there. Members Jude Wheway (Drums) and Ross Jorgensen (Tenor, Baritone Saxes and Flute) soon joined and they started rehearsing the material.
