- CHOCOLATE STRINGS

- With: TIN CAN RADIO
- Tickets: $10
A super food for every part of you goes by the name of Chocolate Strings.
Grown in the boroughs of Brisbane, time has most definitely seasoned this crop into an out-and-out sensory feast. As a motley orchestra of 8 they possess the pulse of afrobeat with a score built on soul, funk and ragga-fied melodies. Made by music lovers for music lovers.
Often referred to as ‘The Strings’, the coconut flavoured harmonies sung by Ofa Fanaika, Nikki McWalters & Nia Falekakala are merely the beginnings of their renowned cook up. Sharp and tasty witty ditties are also served by guitarist and singer, Alex Skinner. However there is no doubt that the sheer number of the group is their defining flavour. Everything played by this delicious octet is bass-laced by bassist- McKelliget, brass-tastically bolder due to Josh Appleby’s sax and relentlessly booming with the Bam Bam Boys signature hits.
