Our rapidly growing fan base finds us performing regularly at popular venues including Republica & Captain Baxter in St Kilda, The Smith, Corte, The Prahran Hotel, Richmond Club Hotel & The Bridge.

We also perform at a range of high-profile corporate events including the Australian Open and Spring Racing Carnival, as well as weddings and private functions both locally and interstate. We’re available to perform as an acoustic duo/trio, a four-piece band… and more!

And so The Mac Project was born. I believe these three concepts – connection, creativity and growth – are intrinsically linked, and it’s on this belief that the Mac Project is founded.
Led by MaryAnne ‘Mac’ McCormack, The Mac Project boasts an impressive list of performance credits and experience.

Mac is a graduate of the prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and has established a successful acting, singing and coaching career both here in Australia and OS. She has been nominated for some of the country’s top Theatre & Writing Awards and was approached by Freemantle Media to be part of the 2014 X-factor series.

When not rocking out with The Mac Project, Grammy and ARIA award-winning Lucas plays bass for good friend and international superstar Gotye, and has recorded and toured all over the world.

Nick K (drums/percussion & vocals) has played with some of the biggest Aussie names in the business and can currently be seen performing as Mick’s (Eddie Perfect)’s drummer in the hit TV series Offspring. Nick also performed at Daniel Johns and Natalie Imbruglia’s secret Port Douglas wedding.

Mikey Chan (Chan-man) has long been recognised as one of the country’s top funk guitarists and has recorded with artists such as Kimbra, Roosts & M-Phazes on their award-winning albums. He also performed on Pharoahe Monch’s album W.A.R. alongside Grammy Award-winning artist Jill Scott.



"We were very fortunate to have the Mac Project play at our wedding last November. From the moment they stepped on stage, our guests followed and the dance floor was full from the opening set right up until the last song. Lead by the amazing vocals of Mac and the slick skills of the boys in the band, our guests were left absolutely entertained and wanting more..."

"MaryAnne, (Mac) is an obvious rare talent, when you team that up with some of Melbourne's best musicians it’s a pretty flawless combination... I couldn’t more highly recommend the band."
