Music for humans of all ages!
ALL DAY FRITZ are a bunch of well known Melbourne performers who enthusiastically cross the great divide to play musical shows that are genuinely for everybody!
All Day Fritz have been filling dance floors with humans of absolutely all ages across the country playing stages both huge and intimate;
:from Falls Festival Tassie, Port Fairy Folk Fest and the Melbourne Recital centre to their monthly residency at OPEN STUDIO in Melbourne,.
Fritz love to have a great time with the crowd ,and their unique brand of rootsy harmonious ,rowdy ,melodious ,bluesy , swingy, funky, calypsoey, eclectic ,original music is a hit with adults and kids alike. Fritz are just as at home playing a family crowd or a late night adult venue.
All day fritz are very versatile and can work as the 8 piece rockin big band with horn section and our amazing gogo dancer Anna Gogo, or as a rootsy harmony singing acoustic trio, and everything in between. Players and extended family members include

STEVE GRANT- GUITAR/PIANO/TRUMPET
PAT CRONIN –TRUMPET

Matt Wilson, Mon Boggia- Guitar
The music is rootsy, swingy, jazzy, rocky, rowdy, mellow, groovy, harmonious and never EVER dumbed down. At our gigs we love to see the dance floor packed with people of all ages from grandparents swing dancing to babies jiggling. You can always hit the dance-floor ,or sit back and enjoy the four part harmonies, original tunes and great songs from a range of musical places.
ALL DAY FRITZ specialise in hunting down music not usually heard to give the audience a taste of a wide range of musical genres as well as funky original tunes and some favourites people will recognise.
Who is Fritz?
ALL DAY FRITZ plays rootsy, harmonious, raucous dance music. The members are well known Melbourne performers with profiles in music, film and comedy. We love to interact and have a great time with crowds of all ages and sizes.
At FRITZ gigs the dancing is free, and so is the sitting back and relaxing!
“I have programmed the totally marvellous All Day Fritz on several occasions in the cosy confines of Edinburgh Gardens Village in Fitzroy, and in the overstimulated (and hugely enjoyable) madness that is The Falls Festival and they always deliver a cracking set. Their excellent family oriented dance music rocks it every time. I can recommend them without reservation.”
Ian Pidd, Artistic Director, The Village
With their unique blend of music, workshop, audience participation and humour they captivated the audience both young and old.
Patrick Cronin, Arts Centre Melbourne

Concerts and Workshops
ALL DAY FRITZ can do concerts for adults only or family friendly crowds. We adjust the material (jokes) tot he audience but the music is never dumbed down either way.
FRITZ doesn't play down tp young audiences and respects that they enjoy good music as much as grown ups.
We also run workshops in harmony singing, Gogo dancing and percussion. We love to invite workshop participants of all ages and abilities to join us for our performances - singing, playing and dancing with the band live.
There are some snippets of our recent all-ages/all-abilities workshop (at ArtPlay in Birrarung Marr) on our workshops page. We teach the crowd simple harmony parts to some of our songs and then our "choir" are invited to sing live with us later at the gig.
