John Brewster (John Carrington Brewster-Jones)[1] is an Australian guitarist who has played in a number of Australian rock bands, including The Angels and The Party Boys.[2][3][4]


In 1970, Brewster, with his brother Rick Brewster and Doc Neeson, formed Moonshine Jug & String Band in Adelaide, the band evolved into The Keystone Angels in 1973.[2] An appearance at the 1975 Sunbury Pop Festival, resulted in touring with AC/DC, and with Chuck Berry as his backing band.[2] By the end of 1975 they become The Angels.[2] Other members included Chris Bailey on bass guitar. Brewster left the band and joined The Party Boys in February 1986.[2] He remained with The Party Boys until mid-1989. Brewster also performed on Jac Dalton's debut album From Both Sides.
