Russle Francis

Owner / Lead Singer / Stuntman

Now introducing, direct from the U.S. .... me, Russel Francis. I've been having fun with audiences for years as a professional singer and entertainer. In that time I've had the amazing privilege of performing for crowds around the world for Disney, Universal Studios Hollywood, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, Holland America, Vegas! The Show, Chippendales, X-Factor USA, and The Voice Australia. I even had the opportunity to headline in multiple shows in Las Vegas and that's where I developed my real passion in creating high-end entertainment.

Alison Francis

Band Manager / Show Creator / Bruno Mars Dancer

Welcome to REDTIE everyone,
I'm Alison but please call me Ali! Originally from the Gold Coast, I recently returned to Australia after a 5-year stint in America where I graced the stage as a showgirl in Las Vegas! Working in the entertainment industry as a dancer was soo cool! I got to perform with well-known artists (Neyo, Chris Brown, Bruno Mars) and choreographers (Napoleon and Tabitha, Shane Sparks, Laurianne Gibson) during a 3-year residency in Los Angeles.
After reaching the top of my career and feeling pretty amazing with my life I caught a pretty serious travel bug which lead me to performing on cruise lines, in national tours, casino shows, international specialty acts and more. Since returning to Australia, I am now the managing director of the REDTIE BAND where I get to bring some big event 'wow factor' to your special day and I LOVE IT!!

Jake Tomlins

Social Media / Drummer / Punnist

Music has all ways been written into Jakes future. Growing up in a household of musicians Jake was soon brought into the family band at only ten years old. The allure of the drums caught Jakes attention and as soon as he picked up the sticks you could regularly hear him playing through to the early hours of the morning.
Through Jakes high school years he would regularly play venues around South east Queensland and when the opportunity came up to play with a newly formed band Bringinshaw with his brother Alex he jumped at the opportunity. The band went onto to play at some of the biggest festivals across Australia as well as toured throughout the States.

After meeting his now fiancé Jamie, Jake decided to move to Melbourne but after spending a year playing around Melbourne Jake heard about many of his old band mates playing for Redtie back in Queensland and after a call with James, Jake and Jamie were packing their bags to head back to the sunshine state. Jake soon flourished in the band as a drummer and was soon asked to become permeant member of the behind the scenes team. Jake now handles all marketing for Redtie and you will still find him behind the kit every week as part of Redtie Band.

We make the process of booking the band as easy and stress free as possible. It only takes 5 minutes to secure the band for your date.
