At the age of 16, living in South Africa, Fabian became the lead singer of a band Willard, doing covers of the 1970’s era. This lasted two years until he emigrated to Australia in 1974.
During that year, while juggling another career and family, he decided to follow his passion and once again started singing, becoming semi professional. By the age of 34, he had done in excess of 600 shows in NSW. The time had come to turn professional.
In 2003 & 2004 with the help of an agent, he became one of the most booked artists on the Sunshine Coast and expanded his repertoire to include covers from both the 60s and 70s.
2005 saw Fabian head over to Bangkok to headline a star studded show at the 5 star Blue Wave Club. Two months and 55 shows later, he was noticed by a South African agent, and subsequently spent the next seven months at the famous Keegans Club in Johannesburg, where he did in excess of 100, two hour gigs. Follwing on, Fabian did 5 shows in Switzerland then headed back to Australia to start a more settled life on the Gold Coast.
2008 saw him booked with 118 shows in his new territory. In January 2009 he made a guest appearance in Phuket doing a six song per night for 4 weeks. Back home, The Hilton, RSL Clubs ,weddings and corporate engagements, as well as a show on a yacht for one of the wealthiest men in Australia became his routine.
By February 2009, he was already booked out for the year, with over 130 bookings. 2010 and 2011 saw Fabian doing in excess of 300 shows, keeping to his personal style as an entertainer, not just a singer, and still doing the hits of the 60s and 70s and a little of the 80s now.
