Waiting Room is an Australian band consisting of lead vocalist and actor Alan Fletcher, guitarist Chris Hawker, singer-songwriter Tommy Rando and drummer Jeff Consi. The band play at a public house called The Elephant and Wheelbarrow in Victoria, Australia.[1] for Neighbours Night to meet fans.[2] The band often tour the UK, where Fletcher is well-known because of his role in the Australian soap opera Neighbours.[3][4]

The band released their debut album In the Waiting Room in 2005.

With Fletcher's link to Neighbours, a couple of their songs have been about Neighbours characters including Sleeping Alongside Susan which was a remix of Smokie's Living Next Door to Alice.[5] This was in reference to his characters relationship with Izzy Hoyland.

Fletcher toured the UK in September and October 2009 with band The X-Rays featuring Johnny Lucas, Chris Hanby and Martin Stewart.[6]
