BioFormed in the spring of 2018, the 7 piece dance/funk band from Newcastle, NSW aims to create and perform music that allows everyone to get up and boogie regardless of what walk of life you're from. The band's music captures everything great about funk/soul music from the killer horn lines to the groovy bass lines and throws a dance/pop twist into it with incredible guitar hooks, rising synths and beautiful melodies delivered with such power it will make even your dad cry. Since releasing their debut EP 'The People That You Meet' in March 2020, the band has quickly gained traction within their local music scene and surrounding cities. Pulling inspiration from a variety of artists, as well as injecting their own creative decisions into their work, Slapjack are continuing to write and create music during this period of uncertainty with the hope to hit the stage once again later this year. These seven individuals are striving to bring something familiar yet different to the table and invite you to join them on their quest to unleash seismic grooves and infectious moves into the world and beyond.
