Kooyeh, the newest nine piece on the block, has traversed the Blue Mountains to Melbourne to record and release their debut album Soul Cleansing. First single 'Mountain Top', Kooyeh has the music industry and fans alike ready to Cooee from the mountain-tops and get their reggae sway on. The Gang Of Brothers are a musical assault that crosses over genres, deeply funky and seriously Phat. Their culturally diverse and influential style digs deeper and deeper in the pocket of groove and rock!
With a DIY home studio made from 20 mattresses and a walled mishmash of carpet that would make even the most relaxed landlord quake in their boots, Kooyeh have cultivated the kind of share-house work-life camaraderie that has produced some of the worlds greatest acts and albums.
Their live together, work together, play together attitude is reflected in their live shows, and audiences benefit from their synergy and their tight sound. Not a band to be easily labelled, their journey through reggae, soul, hip hop, dub and electronica keeps the group - and their growing crowds - on their toes.
With four vocalists, a horn section and a skankalicious riddim section, Kooyeh deliver a high energy show that keeps the dance floor buzzing as the spotlight sweeps between each of the singers, the riffing horn players, funky organ, bluesy guitar, and all the while the driving force of the bass.
Mountain Top is a nod to the band's inception in the mountainous region of Katoomba NSW, before their mass migration to Melbourne. It was written about freeing yourself of the city for some relax time in their old backyard, about "something to get that shuffle in your feet".
"Exploding onto Melbourne's live music scene late last year this incredibly talented band of young virtuosos are destined for the world stage and glory... their vibe reigned supreme with their soul enriching musical talents, gorgeous stage presence, impeccable rhythm and ethereal energy." -Toorak Times
THE GANG OF BROTHERS
A musical assault that crosses over genres, deeply funky and seriously Phat.
Their culturally diverse and influential style digs deeper and deeper in the pocket of groove and rock!
Gang of brothers have been born into music. Brothers Andro, Dauno, Fenix and Banel Martinez hail from the prestigious musical Martinez Family (Martinez Akustica). Joining them on drums and lead vocals is brother Buddy Siolo, whose talents have taken him around the globe ...Together they are GANG OF BROTHERS.
"GOB is a full-scale assault on the senses and resistance to dancing is practically useless. And you don't have to be a funk afficionado to relate: their set comprises highly-recognisable tunes from the quality commercial end of the spectrum....." - Lloyd Bradford Sykes (Australian Stage)
"On their first official track, "Get Up On Ya Feet n Testify," the brothers makes me think of what would happen if JB and Lenny Kravitz randomly met in a dirty, empty bar out on a deserted road and had an impromptu jam session...." -
