INDIGO was formed in New Norfolk for a one-off fundraising gig for the Rotary Club.

Too much fun was had and they decided to make it a permanent band, playing the music they love …

for lovers of music

Richard Forcey

A veteran of the 60’s, Richard has shared the bill with many legendary names including Chuck Berry, The Animals and Georgie Fame.

He has toured and recorded with R’n’B greats Larry Williams and Johnny “Guitar” Watson, and has extensive experience in a wide range of bands, encompassing genres from Rock “n” Roll through Blues, Soul, Jump, R‘n’B to Jazz.

Richard’s dynamic style combines with Dave’s bass to form the ‘engine room” of INDIGO.

Ian “Crofty” Beecroft

At 68, Ian “Crofty” Beecroft, is one of Tasmania’s longest running music legends; starting out in 1965 with Phil Manning in Hobart, and still blowing, Crofty adds his fairy dust to INDIGO, on harp, sax and flute.
