Beaten Bodies is an eight piece blues and soul outfit from Sydney, Australia. The band mixes dirty, down-low grooves and up-tempo rhythms to produce a vintage sound with a contemporary presence. Listening to Beaten Bodies evokes sophistication, sass and sex.
A Kooyeh is an nine piece Reggae/Soul/Dub band based in Melbourne.
Originally from the Blue Mountains in NSW, Kooyeh have spent the past two years refining and honing their sound, to come up with a style that is forever moving forward, yet looks over its shoulder to respectfully wink at the past.
Featuring four vocalists, a horn section and a skankalicious riddim section, the Kooyeh massive deliver a high energy show steeped in heavyweight reggae riddims and funky soul that keeps the dancefloor buzzing as the spotlight sweeps between each of the singers, the riffing horn players, funky organ, bluesy guitar and of course, bass heavy one drop.
