ITTY KITTY BANG BANG (live showreel)
Bio: Itty Kitty Bang Bang are the most pop-tastic new funky sensation on the Australian scene! We are a Sydney-based 5-piece original pop/funk band, fronted by the charismatic and often outrageous Itty Kitty Kathryn O’Connor on lead vocals and drums. The band also consists of bass, guitar, keyboards and saxophone. We play a unique and catchy mix of funky sounds with Itty Kitty singing stories of life and love in a crazy world, while laying down infectious beats. We are passionate about making the world a better place through sharing messages of love and a passion for the environment through our music.
For some musicians, funk is where it’s at. It starts and ends with groove. Funk Engine is one such band. Formed in early 2013, the four-piece jazz-funk band has been exciting audiences around Sydney and beyond combining funk grooves with jazz harmony and improvisation. 2014 saw the release of their first album and in 2017 they released their second album Taking a Ride collaborating with Sydney indigenous rapper DOBBY and an expanded horn section. Funk Engine have held residencies in Sydney venues such as Lazybones lounge Mr. Falcons, The Townie, and many more. They have also played at several festivals including the Beats Music Festival at Peats Ridge (2013), Regrowth and the Sydney Women’s International Jazz Festival, (2017) and VIVID light festival in Sydney (2018).
