uckland soul/hip-hop collective Round Buddah are preparing for their final ever show this December at Auckland's thriving underground venue, Neck of the Woods. The five-piece are saying goodbye to five years of touring, making and releasing music together, swimming in debt, applying for funding to no success and being paid a mere pittance to entertain people who have no more face left to chew. Never fear! This makes way for new beginnings as the group set off on their own solo endeavours.
Joining them on this special night are...Dunedin-born liquid lovers Palace Radio, space explorers Keith. and well-respected vibe birther Bobandii.
Round Buddah invite all their supporters, friends, family and any curious newcomers to sway with them one last time.
- Round Buddah
Keith's approach to sound has always been familiar yet fresh. Tapping into each of their individual tastebuds, the resulting noises blur the lines between Funk, Hip-Hop & Psychedelic music. The bands journey to this point has been filled with collaboration, experimentation and good old-fashioned work ethic, amounting to their debut album ‘Planet Keith’. After a sell out Album Release show at Cassette 9 Keith has continued to play a range of shows in the North Island including Bfm’s Fancy New Band Showcase, Bobandii’s album release and most recently opening for Avantdale Bowling Club at the Powerstation.
Bobandii has had a big year with the release of his album, “Running Handshake/B.L.U.E.”, going on his first headline tour last month and printing his album on vinyl for the first time. After coming off the tour, Bobandii is excited to also be opening for Round Buddha, another first time experience for the singer-songwriter.
