Daryl Braithwaite Singer
A huge fan of singer Daryl Braithwaite and his band, Sherbet, Janelle Timmins was in for a double shock on the day she moved out of Ramsay Street. After her fiancé Allan Steiger surprised her by announcing that they were getting married there and then, with friends and family gathered, he then followed the ceremony by giving her a wedding gift she could never forget – a visit and a performance from Daryl. Janelle promptly fainted after coming face to face with her idol, but was soon back up and joining everyone else for dance as Daryl performed One Summer.
Born January 11th 1949 in Melbourne, Victoria, Daryl Braithwaite had an early interest in music, singing in his school choir. At the age of 14, he moved with his family to Sydney, where he trained as a machinist, before quitting to pursue a career in music. After singing in various bands, Daryl joined Sherbet in 1970, and they went on to have 20 hits in the Australian charts between 1971 and 1979, as well as 15 of his own solo hits between 1974 and 1993. His most recent album, Snapshot, was released in 2005.
