"Best cover band I have seen in years..
the rock chick lead vocalist explodes on stage and her cohorts are uber talented and energetic..
You can see their passion for music and performing the whole time they are on stage..can't wait to get ducked again!!"

Cranky Duck are a high energy female fronted 5 piece band from Taree NSW.

Since forming in early 2016 Cranky Duck have quickly become known for their energy and enthusiasm towards their performances, both on and off the stage.

The Ducks are well known up and down the NSW Mid Coast, from Central Coast to Coffs Harbour, and are regularly entertaining the patrons of Mid Coast venues around Taree and Forster.


They have a reputation for tackling and putting their own "Ducking Flavour" on a wide variety of covers. Fun and danceable, heavy and intense, slow and sultry, and those songs you haven't heard in years that you forgot you loved. No genre is off-limits. With a killer rhythm and low end section, two shredding guitarists and a powerhouse female vocalist, Cranky Duck put together shows that keeps the patrons coming back for more. Influences include Led Zeppelin, Guns'N'Roses, Heart, Nirvana, Metallica, Killing Heidi, AC/DC, Queen, Talking Heads, Green Day, Black Sabbath, silverchair and much more!
A Cranky Duck show is not one to be missed!
