Electrik Lemonade is a merry band of funklords that play a repertoire of funk, hip hop and dance music that could only be fathered by the likes of Captain Planet. Each member brings their own slice of Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Lovin’ in the live show, culminating in a whirlwind of explosive energy that comes with a tidal warning as the crowd uncontrollably bursts into a wave of dance and good vibes.
Since their debut in December 2010, Electrik Lemonade's live performances have rapidly grown as they play to crowds at premiere live music venues & festivals up and down the East Coast. They've been lucky enough to be aired live to National Television featuring on Channel 7's Weekend Sunrise, Channels 10's The 7pm Project, Queensland Weekender, a feature artist on Toasted TV & reaching airplay in Europe, Asia, North America & regularly throughout Australia.
Drawing on a unique blend of influences while combining their comedic, fun attitude toward life they present a energetic, visual music show - after which, the crowd is never left with anything but a funky uplifted feeling.
After releasing their debut album: 'Squeezed Fresh' in early 2019, Electrik Lemonade have continued their incredible run of good times touring nationally around Australia performing at the Byron Bay Blues Festival, BIGSOUND Festival, Jungle Love Festival, Caloundra Music Festival, The 2018 Commonwealth Games & Suncorp Stadium for the Brisbane Broncos home games. The band have had the honours of sharing stages alongside Parliament Funkadelic, John Butler Trio, Sticky Fingers, Smashmouth, Mental As Anything & Ian Moss.
-THE STEELE SYNDICATE-
The Steele Syndicate is all about the groove. Steele McMahon’s Brisbane-based octet is raucous, punchy and fun, with a genre-bending sound that reimagines elements of old school funk, reggae, ska and indie rock. The band packs a roaring, four-piece horn section and a rhythm section to match, creating music from soulful, contemplative ballads to dance-inducing funk frenzies. It’s a sharp-dressing, instrument-hopping unit!
Since its formation in September 2015, The Steele Syndicate has entertained over 80,000 people at Sydney’s City2Surf road run, played at the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay, Cairns’ Reef Hotel and Casino, NightQuarter and a host of Brisbane’s best venues. The band is also breaking into the festival scene, having appeared at the Gum Ball Music Festival, Newstead Roots Festival, PigSty in July and headlined the Teneriffe Festival. With an active touring schedule since 2018, the band’s dynamic live show is leaving an impression up and down the east coast of Australia. The Steele Syndicate has also opened for, among many others, the New Orleans-based, Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band.
