About The Sherbs

Australian pop group the Sherbs was formed in 1980; its previous incarnation, Sherbet, was among the most successful Aussie bands of the 1970s, scoring a series of hits including "Child's Play," "Slipstream," "Cassandra," "Life," "Summer Love" and the chart-topping "Howzat." The Sherbs' lineup reunited singer Daryl Braithwaite, guitarist Harvey James, bassist Tony Mitchell, keyboardist Garth Porter and drummer Andy Sandow, all of whom teamed in Sherbet; following the release of their debut LP I Have the Skill, Harvey left the group, and was replaced by guitarist Tony Leigh for 1981's Defying Gravity. After issuing the 1982 mini-LP Shaping Up, the group mounted a farewell tour under the Sherbet banner before dissolving a year later; Braithwaite later enjoyed a successful solo career. ~ Jason Ankeny
