We are a pop/rock duo performing at various venues and private engagements.
Mark Badham-Thornhill Selected for the Drakensberg Boys Choir at a young age, Mark went on to carve a niche for himself by winning the ‘Shell Road To Fame’ talent competition, and more recently, winning the Bothers Music ‘Forever Young’ music competition. Besides being a core part of the Doppler Effect duo, Mark performs as a solo artist, as well as in a duo, and in the Wroxeter acoustic rock band. He excels in singing classic acoustic rock numbers, and is the guy you want around the campfire on warm summer nights.
Brian Woodland Brian got his teeth into drumming when he found himself entertaining in the old SADF during ‘National Service’ in the late 70’s. He toured for 2 years playing for the SADF, until hanging up his army boots and getting into top local bands around Cape Town over the following decades. Brian is a capable musician performing rock, pop, reggae, swing, jazz and country & western musical styles. Always ready to laugh, he always sees the funny side of a missed beat or badly timed drum fill.
With almost 40 years of musical performance experience, Doppler Effect delivers the live ambience that comes from putting a great singer/guitar player together with a real drummer for that full band feeling, but with a small footprint. The Duo can fit into an intimate restaurant, a bustling pub, or open air venue...
