Gerry O has also been the front man of Adelaide’s most popular bands and in early 2005 Gerry was the only South Australian to be chosen as one of the Australian top 20 for the INXS Rockstar national talent competition where he received several votes.
Gerry’s also won “best original song” in the Songwriters, Composers and Lyrics Association competition, and his main ambition is to perform his own comedy show and original music nationally and internationally.
