'The duo that sounds like a band'

Mirage was created using the energetic talents of guitarist/vocalist Jamie Hopson and lead vocalist Karen MacDonald.

With the latest technology backing tracks, stunning lighting effects and terrific crowd rapport, Mirage guarantees great entertainment.

The duo uses the same set-up preferred by a four or five-piece band to achieve the same big sound for the larger venues. In fact, they constantly hear that it's hard to believe there are only two people on stage.

Jamie and Karen pride themselves in the art of stage presence and enjoy the challenge of getting even the most difficult crowd up on the dance floor.

Karen has been performing for 20 years in various bands, playing all sorts of covers and originals. She started performing on stage as a child in stage plays and musicals.

Jamie has been performing in public since he was 12 years old - in various school bands, ensembles, rock 'n' roll outfits and duos, as well as solo. He has won various awards for his musicianship.

Mirage has been on stage for more than 12 years and in this time has built up an extensive song list which has been very beneficial as the band can now do theme shows upon request - ie. '80s, Aussie and Old Time Rock 'N' Roll to name a few.

Mirage also performs acoustic shows with or without backing tracks.

When they perform at special functions they are quite happy to tailor a set list and even try out a couple of newies within reason!

A highlight of recent years for Mirage was performing at a gig as the support act for the Grace Knight Jazz Quartet (former singer of the Eurogliders).
