The Quiet Ones (L-R Ian Taylor, Peter Cookson, Phill Beazley, PG Naylor and Laurie Facer

The Quiet Ones, originally formed by a group of teenagers in Hornsby, Sydney, Australia in 1964, played 60s rock music at dances, surfclubs, football clubs and the normal range of parties etc mainly around Sydney's North Shore and Northern beaches and various country B and S balls until the band broke up in 1970.

They re-formed in 2007 to play as a charity band, raising funds for charities.  The main charity they have worked for is Bo Children's Hospital in poverty stricken Sierra Leone, Africa.  Over the past few years the band has raised about $30,000 for this charity plus some thousands of $ for other various charities.

The current band lineup is PG Naylor, vocals and guitar, Phill Beazley, drums, Laurie Facer, bass guitar, Peter Cookson, lead guitar, harmonica and vocals and Ian Taylor, keyboards, guitar and vocals.

The Quiet Ones are available for booking for any events that would enjoy great 60s rock music.  Contact pgnaylor@bigpond.com. All proceeds to a charity of your choice or to our chosen charity, Bo Children's Hospital.

Dear Laurie, Phil, Peter, Phil and Ian,

Thank you all so much for your wonderful donation of $1000  to the Bo Children’s Hospital.  We very much appreciate your generosity for this donation and for the time given for your performance at the Asquith Bowling Club, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You are all excellent musicians as well as performers in the band, congratulations!

We also raised $620 from the raffle and the lady that won it works for the North Shore Hospital and she was going to raffle it again for the RNSH, a double whammy for healthcare

The money you raised will go a long way at the Bo Children’s Hospital and will be greatly received. 

Denise Curry, Bo Chiledren's Hospital Foundation


The Quiet Ones were honoured with a tribute in New South Wales State Parliament on 11 May 2017 by the Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation, the Hon Matt Kean MP for their work in raising funds for charity.
