We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Brian Perkins, a founding member of The Delltones (1958), and a true legend in the music industry.
Brian passed away peacefully at his property on the Far North Coast over the weekend.
He was surrounded by the love and support of his wife, Janis, close friends and his beloved poodles, Mirusia Bronte and Ashton Martin.
Brian was a strong and determined individual, who had a passion for music and entertainment.
After his successful career with The Delltones, he then went on to form another successful vocal harmony group, Sh Boom.
Brian’s contributions to the music industry and the community are immeasurable, and his passing will be felt by many.
He was also an entrepreneur, owning and operating a boutique resort and restaurant in the Byron Bay hinterland. After selling the resort, Brian again re-invented and established himself as a fully-licensed real estate agent and auctioneer. He was also the director of his family company on the Far North Coast of NSW.
He remained actively involved in his work until his untimely death on the weekend.
Brian was a cherished member of the community and will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him.
He lived a full and meaningful life, dedicated to his family, friends and passions.
His legacy will live on through the memories and impact he left on those he touched.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends, and fans during this difficult time.
Rest in peace, Brian Perkins, a true rock star and legend.
You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
