About Our Band

The Love Finders Quartet Live

The Love Finders Band is a group of family and friends. We usually play as a 4 or 5 piece, however we sometimes also play as a duo or trio, and sometimes also add guest artists.

Love Finders Band Family

Michael King and Rupert Guenther 

Michael and Rupert from The Love Finders BandMichael King (on guitar & vocals) and Rupert Guenther (on violin & vocals) are the front men for the band. They have been great mates for longer than they can remember.

Michael has been involved in the live music scene on and off since the early 1980's, having done sound engineering and lighting for bands, theatre productions, festivals and fashion parades as his main hobby for over 20 years. He was a late starter playing music, like many people Michael knew a few chords but couldn't play a song right through, until he started guitar lessons when he was 46 years old. Michael has worked as an educator in the field of personal growth since 1993. He is also a qualified toolmaker and mechanical engineer who loves restoring vintage motorcycles. He is an avid student of world history and a keen collector. He has 4 children, his eldest son is the bass player, and his wife Segolene plays keyboards and sings in the band. "Making music with your family and friends is about as good as it gets!", Michael says.

Rupert Guenther is a European trained, world class violinist who crosses over into many styles of music from classical to rock, blues, and world music, and is an original solo artist a lot of the time. Having worked a a professional classical musician in Vienna for many years, he has also played with many well known artists and bands over his over four decades of live performance experience including John Farnam. He enjoys making music with people who share an outlook on music as a personal creative passion, rather than simply an avenue for their egos. He also teaches workshops on personal growth and creativity.  Rupert's partner Tanya is the Manager of The Love Finders Band.
