Broker Network chief executive Grant Ellis is bringing his band Broken Fretwork (geddit?) to a conference near you.

Backchat introduces Grant Ellis on rhythm guitar, Broker Network IT director Phillip Walker on lead guitar and NIG's Mick Davis on drums.

Ellis has also signed up Smart & Cook top dog Paul Meehan to lead the sing-along. As no broker is complete without its PR, self-proclaimed "token blonde PR" Kelly-Ann French will complete the line-up.
