Those Cool Guys
When you put Paul Mulqueen and Andrew Hobler together, well… you get Those Cool Guys!
They play everything that’s cool from the 50’s to current tracks and yes they even play some things that just aren’t cool!
Andrew is a freelance guitarist working sessions with and supporting many Australian and international artists.
Paul has been support act for major touring artists and has worked in both the UK and USA.
Best of all is their sense of humour! If you get the chance to see Those Cool Guys don’t... miss them!

READ WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT WORKING WITH ANDREW.
"When I heard Andrew play guitar I immediately had the feeling that this was a musician that had really worked at and perfected his craft, his melodic sense as a soloist was beautiful and his tone refined and warm. Andrew is obviously a servant of the music and his playing reflects a sense of humility and excitement that makes everyone around him feel good." - David Galea: bassist and composer - https://www.davidgaleamusic.com/
“Andrew is one of my favourite guitarists in South East Queensland. Accomplished, seasoned and well respected. Sought after for studio sessions, Big Band arrangements and just as comfortable playing in a orchestra or to swing it in a blues band. True master arranger, writer and performer. I’m honoured to play with such a professional...5 stars" - Frazer Goodman -http://frazergoodman.blogspot.com
“Andrew is a valuable asset to every musical context he is involved in. From music theatre to jazz ensemble, Andrew displays a variety of virtuosic finesse in a range of styles and genres, along with the ability to read anything thrown his way” - James Whiting Percussionist - https://www.jameswhiting.com.au/
"Andrew Hobler is an exemplary musician and guitarist. Andrew seamlessly moves between rock, contemporary, jazz and classical styles with ease. In our recent production of Jesus Christ Superstar, Andrew proved once again that he is a bandsman able to work into any situation with ease. Having him play on the show was inspirational."- Jeremy Williamson Director of Performing Arts, Hillcrest Christian College, Gold Coast
"I recently had the pleasure of working with Andrew on a production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Gold Coast Arts Centre. His guitar playing and musicianship are of an extremely high professional standard and his easy genuine manner was a welcome addition in a show orchestral setting which can sometimes test patience and musical sanity because of repetition. I would be delighted to work with him again, and have no hesitation recommending him highly".- David Piper, Musical Director.
