Clearway is a rock band from Adelaide that was originally formed in 1987 by the Lopresto brothers.


The band have supported many national & international acts such as Status Quo, INXS, Jimmy Barnes & John Farnham to name but a few. They have also played at such gigs as The SANFL Grand Final,The Phillip Island Moto GP, The Australian Grand Prix & The Clipsal 500 before a crowd of 50,000. 

Danny Lopresto on lead vocals & guitar also plays a wide variety of instruments proficiently and is highly responsible for giving Clearway it’s unique sound. Danny has written and performed in original bands, sung T.V jingles and has recorded many voice overs. In 2005, he was chosen as the South Australian representative to audition as lead vocalist for INXS, beating out many hopefuls and finishing in the Australian top 20. In 2010, he took on the role of Judas in the stage production of Jesus Christ Superstar performing to sold out crowds nightly.

Max Lopresto on lead guitar & backing vocals has played guitar for over 30 years, proving his ability by winning the Fender/Coca Cola sponsored ‘Guitar Challenge’ in 1995. Max has also been a touring & studio session guitarist, but is happiest when playing his ‘Keith Richards’ to Danny's ‘Jagger’! Since joined by their nephew Kristian ‘The K-Man’ Lopresto & his dynamic drumming style, Clearway is in its fourth decade.
