Van The Man

Sydney based

Van the Man had it's beginnings in the rocking pub trio "Hogan & The Beckettes."

Many nights were spent belting out "Moondance," "Brown-eyed Girl" and "Gloria," to name a few, at such venues as "The Alley Cat," "Brewer's Elbow" and "Dr. Redbirds."

In it's first full year as an up and running band "Van the Man" had a residency at "Star City" (Bridie O'Reillys,) played at the "Sydney Olympic Official Homebush Celebration," sold out "Harbord Diggers" for the first time in 5 years and was sponsored by Guinness to tour the North Island of New Zealand for 3 weeks in October/November 2000.

Music is about emotion, love, sorrow and all the fun things in between. The people who surround me on stage are not only magnificent musicians but truly great friends. I hope their dedication to "Van the Man" will reward them in all the ways they hope for themselves.

Steve Hogan, Founder & Frontman for "Van the Man"


Van The Man  perform all the hits and classic songs from a career spanning three decades including his all time favourites:

  • Moondance
  • Bright Side Of The Road
  • Brown Eyed Girl
  • Gloria
  • Domino
  • Baby Please Don't Go

You haven't had a night out until you've stood in the audience and sung (in unison) "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You".

The amazing success of this show is attributable to the uncanny vocals of it's lead vocalist, Steve Hogan. A long time Van Morrison fan and successful performer he was consistently amazed by the reaction he would get whenever he performed a Van Morrison tune.

It was natural that this observation and the likeness of Steve's voice to Van Morrison's that he would put this show together.

Band line-up:   

  • Steve Hogan  - lead vocals/acoustic guitar/mouth organ
  • Dave Hatton  - bass  guitar
  • Brad Merrick   - lead  guitar/backing vocals
  • Dave Grindley - keyboard/backing vocals
  • Igor Fedotov  - saxophone 
  • Josh Bedoukian - drums   

Steve Hogan - Lead Vocal, Acoustic Guitar & Mouth Organ
I was given my first guitar when I was 6. I went to two guitar lessons but the teacher hit my fingers with a ruler so I spent the next 4 weeks sliding down a grassy hill near the studio in my cardboard guitar box. My Dad eventually caught me wagging lessons and that was the end of my formal guitar training. I picked the guitar up again at age 22.

I came up with the idea of "Van the Man" being a "BIG" band in opposition to all one-man sequenced bands (of which I have been one).  

Dave Hatton - Bass Guitar
Started playing at the age of 17.
Joined "Van the Man" in 1998 after being stolen by Steve Hogan from "Treacle" and haven't looked back. I invented the "air base technique" for bedroom rock heroes.

Brad Merrick- Lead Guitar
Started playing trumpet at age 5, started playing guitar at age 12, studying both classical and rock styles. Grew up playing guitar and jamming with my older brother and then I mastered the splits at age 13 while playing rock guitar in my bedroom jumping off the bed and onto the floor.    

Dave Grindley - Keyboards
Started classical piano lessons age 12, finished classical piano lessons age 12. David holds an Associated Diploma in Contemporary Music. He has worked professionally as a musician for 13 years, lectured in music and songwriting in Australia and Singapore.
